COVID-19 pandemic has had a drastic impact on the daily wage earners and vulnerable communities
including healthcare workers. Nearly 10 crore people in India live in slums. A majority of these
people comprise economic migrants from poor rural areas who come to cities in search of shelter
In order to mitigate the impact of COVID-19, three initiatives are launched by Panchshil Foundation,
the CSR arm of Panchshil Realty. First, to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on daily wage earners in
the Pune region. Second, in partnership with the National Disaster Response Force, to educate
vulnerable communities. Third, to provide 10,000 PPE kits to hospital teams handling COVID-19
patients in Pune.
The economic slowdown triggered by the novel coronavirus pandemic has left the daily wage
earners with no income and they are struggling to survive. The Panchshil Foundation has provided
over 12,000 food hampers including essentials in the Pune region in association with the office of
the Collector of Pune and elected representatives like Corporators.
Under the second initiative, the Panchshil Foundation has partnered with the Pune-based 5th
Battalion of the elite National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) to raise awareness about COVID-19
and the precautions to be taken by vulnerable individuals at a community level.
Under the third initiative, the Foundation provided 10,000 Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) kits
to doctors and healthcare workers handling COVID-19 cases in hospitals in Pune.

activities comprising providing necessities to the poverty-struck population of Pune, to educate
