GTECH is also sensitive to the needs of the sections of our society that have been adversely affected by the pandemic. GTECH has been working with the government and civil society organisations in this area through our CSR Focus Group. The CSR Focus Group was particularly active in the earlier Flood Relief activities for 2018 and 2019. This pandemic also has seen them spring into action. GTECH member companies have enthusiastically contributed to an ever growing corpus of funds; despite the cash pressures at their end. This is being deployed by the CSR Focus Group to support initiatives to battle the pandemic and its effects. GTECH has supported community kitchens across Kerala by providing essential supplies, Food Items & Palliative care support in Trivandrum, Kochi, Alleppey and Kozhikode, over 5000 people were benefited out of this initiative from GTECH. GTECH provided Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to our public health professionals at Government Medical College, Trivandrum. The PPE Kits were directly handed over to the Medical Superintendent, Government Medical College Trivandrum and GTECH in collaboration with Governmentis setting up a war room and FLTC (Front line treatment center) for a district. GTECH will continue to support more initiatives as and when we identify them through government and credible civil society partners.
