GPCL has handed over relief supply of over 200,000 units of Godrej Protekt sanitisers and handwash products to Ujala Cygnus Hospitals
Ujala Cygnus Group of Hospitals has joined hands with Godrej Consumer Products Limited (GCPL). Under the initiative, the GPCL has handed over relief supply of over 200,000 units of Godrej Protekt sanitisers and handwash products to Ujala Cygnus Hospitals.
The supply includes Godrej Protekt sanitisers which will be used for patients and healthcare workers, who are at the frontlines in this pandemic. The donation will be utilised across 13 hospitals of the Ujala Cygnus Group of Hospitals spread over Delhi, Haryana, Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh.
“We have seen how women and children in disadvantaged communities don’t have access to basic hygiene products which makes them vulnerable not just to COVID but to a lot of other diseases as well. They should be the first ones to get access to hygiene products, as we strongly believe that they are the present and the future. It’s highly inspiring to see how such multinational business giants are joining hands with healthcare providers in this fight against the coronavirus pandemic. Hand hygiene is the first line of defence followed by wearing a mask and practising social distancing. Keeping the hands clean is essential in preventing the spread of the novel coronavirus, as well as other germs that can cause common cold and flu,” said Dr Shuchin Bajaj, Founder & Director, Ujala Cygnus Group of Hospitals.
Speaking about the programme, Sunil Kataria, CEO – India and SAARC, Godrej Consumer Products Limited (GCPL) said, “Safety and hygiene are priorities for consumers these days, particularly so when they are travelling. Godrej Protekt’s purpose is to alleviate the hygiene concerns of consumers and champion programs that helps to spread awareness of the right ways to maintain hygiene.”
