COVID-19 Relief Efforts

Educating about social distancing

At Khushberiya and Simatand villages in Sindri, Jharkhand, ACC volunteers are walking through the villages with microphones to educate and create awareness on COVID-19 among villagers. Social distancing can reduce India's cases of COVID-19 by up to 62%, says an Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) study. Most of ACC's 17 manufacturing units are located in rural areas and our teams are taking the lead to educate neighbouring communities and villages through tele-calling, mobile vans with loud-speakers, posters etc on the immediate need for social distancing, the importance of personal sanitation and respiratory hygiene. ACC has covered ~93 villages in 11 states and the teams are reaching out to many more.
