KPIT CSR Initiative - EMERGENCY RELIEF WORK

Overview
Many regions in India have been prone to nature’s fury that has led to destruction of life and property. KPIT extends its help to these disaster-struck areas not just monetarily but also emotionally where our employees travel to these regions, assisting the local NGOs in the rehabilitation work.

Given below are a few such events where we have been actively involved:
Initiatives

Following are some of our key Donation Drives:
J&K Relief Work
Uttarakhand Rehabilitation Work
Chennai Flood Relief
Nepal Earthquake Relief
Jammu and Kashmir Relief Fund
An effort towards restoring life at J&K after the baneful flood
Six days of incessant rains last month in the Jammu & Kashmir valley caused the death of more than 150 people and seriously affected the entire state. This is one of the worst floods the region has seen in the last 50 years. The Army evacuated over 150,000 people, but many are still either missing or continuing to struggle with the situation. In the wake of such massive destruction, rehabilitation efforts have been proving futile.

The valley is destined to face acute shortage of sunlight and also power. Added to this is the fact that snowfall will begin in less than 2 months.

KPIT decided to support the solar electrification in Jammu & Kashmir. For this initiative, 700 of our employees raised a fund of Rs.5.5 lacs. We sponsored Solar Electrification of 10 villages covering over 10,000 individuals in association with our Partner NGO "Aseem Foundation", Pune.

Two of our volunteers, 'Tushar Juvekar' and 'Piyush Tarale' visited Jammu & Kashmir to coordinate the solar electrification. Along with this, our flagship initiative “Chhote Scientists” session was also conducted, which saw a lot of enthusiasm from the children in the valley.

Uttarkhand Flood Relief
An effort towards restoring life at Uttarakhand after the unfortunate flood
Another major effort undertaken by the company was the relief work at Uttarakhand. KPIT not just contributed monetarily but also joined hands with NGOs working in that region to facilitate distribution of provisions in the disaster hit areas.

Flash floods and landslides wreaked havoc in Uttarakhand. A mix of very heavy rainfall, cloudburst and landslides caused substantial damage to man and material, leaving a trail of death and destruction. Experts claim that the present situation will take years to normalize. Millions of people have been rendered homeless and property worth billions of rupees has been damaged. The Government and aid agencies are doing their bit to help the people of the state, but in tragedies of this magnitude they can certainly use assistance from as many quarters as possible.

To show support to the Uttarakhand victims, we have launched the “Uttarakhand Flood Relief Fund” in association with a reputed, local NGO working in Uttarakhand.

Over 600 socially responsible and concerned KPites supported this cause and donated a total amount of Rs. 6,00,000/-.

One of our employees Anamika Sen Gupta from Mumbai office was in Uttarakhand helping the victims. We salute her for her contribution. Anamika is a true representative of what we want a KPite to be.

Chennai Flood Relief Fund

The Initiative
Chennai, a city of 4.6 million people on India's south east coast, was reeling from the heaviest and deadliest rains in decades. Since October 2015, flooding killed at least 280 people in the region, according to the National Disaster Response Force. About 28,000 people were rescued and more than 1.25 lakh people were evacuated. Despite combined rescue efforts by the military and civilian emergency services, some areas were yet to receive relief and undertake rescue operations. KPIT decided to support our Partner NGO Youth For Seva in rehabilitation work. We raised Rs.10, 00,000/- which has been deployed in medical aid of the flood victims.
Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund

The Initiative
The 2015 Nepal earthquake that killed more than 7,000 people and injured more than twice as many, occurred on 25 April, with a moment magnitude of 7.8 on Richter scale. It was the most powerful disaster to strike Nepal since the 1934 Nepal–Bihar earthquake. KPIT CSR Team was part of the immediate rescue work and also initiated the rehabilitation work.
