COVID relief efforts of Yuva Unstoppable CSR partners
Under the COVID relief efforts inspired by Hon. Governor of Gujarat Acharya Devvrat, 200 trucks with ration kits consisting of essential food supplies such as pulses, cooking oil, food grains, spices, snacks, toiletries and detergents, among others were sent statewide. The kits were sourced in collaboration with Amul with the aim of supporting the country’s less privileged farmers. At the felicitation ceremony organized to mark the successful execution of the Corona Seva Yagna, YuvaUnstoppable’s corporate partners were recognized and felicitated with letter of appreciation for their timely support and aid in the country’s fight against the pandemic.
Hon. Union Home Minister Amit Shah expressed gratitude for the tireless service of the Frontlines Warriors. He appreciated the efforts of Hon. Governor of Gujarat and Amitabh Shah led Yuva Unstoppable, urging them to work together to further strengthen the country’s response to the pandemic. He added that the battle against COVID-19 will only be fully won when everyone is aware about the benefits of vaccination and is vaccinated. The corporates and community organizations could come together to drive this.
Speaking of the occasion, Hon. Governor of Gujarat Acharya Devvrat said: “We are grateful to Hon. Union Home Minister Amit Shah and Hon. CM of Gujarat Vijay Rupani for joining us to thank the corporate partners at the Corona Seva Yagna ‘DhanyavadSamaroh’ (Thanksgiving Ceremony). We also thank Amitabh Shah, his wife Rashmi Amitabh Shah, and the entire Team Yuva Unstoppable for their unwavering support in making this initiative a huge success.”
Saluting the work of Frontline Warriors and the contribution of its CSR partners, Amitabh Shah said: “We are extremely honoured to be supporting Corona Seva Yagna under the auspices of Hon. Governor of Gujarat. Our deepest gratitude to Hon. Union Home Minister Amit Shah for recognizing and felicitating our corporate partners for their contribution towards COVID relief. We thank all the Frontline Warriors for their indomitable spirit and inspiring work. To alleviate the sufferings of our True Heroes and enable them to serve stress free is our motto. We will continue to stand with the country and each other in these tough times.”
Prithivirajbhai Vaghela, ambulance driver from a Primary Healthcare Centre in Ahmedabad couldn’t have been more grateful for the ration kit provided under Corona Seva Yagna. “I have been working as an ambulance driver for last 15 years. The past few months have been really difficult and taken a toll on us. We did multiple trips, within and outstation, to save the lives of COVID patients. Not only was it emotionally overwhelming but also physically exhausting. Still, I put my duty before my family. My mother was diagnosed as COVID positive back in our hometown while I was on duty. I couldn’t go tend to her. It is so heart-warming to see that Hon. Governor, Yuva Unstoppable and so many donors are thinking about us and our family.”
