AHMEDABAD: Adani Foundation, CSR arm of Adani Group, divers business group, has committed for giving Rs 50 crore to the Kerala Chief Minister’s Distress Relief Fund in an order to support people affected by the devastating floods in the state.

The financial assistance will be dispatched in two phases. The Foundation will provide Rs 25 crore for immediate relief and another Rs 25 crore earmarked for rehabilitation and resettlement of Kerala to aid the state in its herculean task of reconstruction and rehabilitation.

In showing a concerted commitment, the Group’s employees have pledged a day’s salary to express solidarity with the distressed people of Kerala.

The Foundation, whose core ethos is nation-building and the empowerment of citizens, has also started massive rehabilitation work in collaboration with Adani Vizhinjam Port Pvt. Ltd.

The Foundation has also pressed into service its Mobile Healthcare Van. With floodwaters starting to recede, there is a serious health concern developing in the region. To help prevent the outbreak of epidemics, the Mobile Healthcare Van with a doctor, pharmacist and social worker will be stationed at relief camps in Kozhancherry and Pathanamthitta, catering to the needs of about 200 people every day.
