Danube Group, a Dubai-based multi-billion dollar diversified business conglomerate, will contribute towards Covid-19 relief efforts in India. The group has announced that it would donate 10% of its company Danube Home’s Dubai profits from its sales for the month of May, to mitigate Covid pains in India. The relief initiative will be handled by the Danube Home Foundation, through which customers will be urged to contribute towards this noble cause as well.
Danube Home will primarily be donating to oxygen provider agencies as well as the NGOs in Mumbai, the city from where the company’s chairman Rizwan Sajan hails. To start, the company has already decided to donate to three institutions based in Mumbai, which include the Popular Front of Maharashtra, Rotary India and Kalsekar Hospital. Further, Danube Home is also looking to donate to NGOs across India engaged in Covid relief operations.
Making the announcement, Adel Sajan, group managing director at Danube says, “Given the severity of the devastating pandemic situation in India, it’s our utmost responsibility to make efforts towards helping the needy and the sufferers across India. Since its inception, Danube Group has stood strong with the people of India to make a positive difference in the society. If we look at the nationwide fight against Covid-19, it is very much required for all organisations to come forward in every possible way to ensure that our citizens have seamless access to the healthcare services, oxygen and other necessary requirements which can save precious lives.”
