COVID-19 Relief Efforts

Supporting vulnerable communities

Wadi in Karnataka's Gulbarga district has rich limestone and sahabad stone mines that attract workers from across the country in search of seasonal livelihood opportunities. The nationwide lockdown on account of COVID-19 and lack of daily wages have adversely affected these workers, forcing them to take shelter in public areas with inadequate basic facilities. We are proud of our ACC volunteers who visited the workers and provided assistance – from ACC's Chief Medical Officer who conducted the primary health screening and educated them on hygiene, social distancing and staying safe during the pandemic, to providing shelter and necessary facilities at ACC colony in Wadi. While they are being quarantined, these volunteers are providing food and provisions as well as basic necessities. ACC is committed to supporting vulnerable communities during this crisis.
