Amid the lockdown, Suresh Nanda of The Claridges offered help to the underprivileged
All the important stakeholders of the society came together to ensure that no one is left behind when the government imposed the lockdown to contain Coronavirus.
Like many leading philanthropists of the nation, hotelier Suresh Nanda, Chairman of Claridges Group of Hotels, collaborated with several NGOs to ensure an adequate supply of food for the underprivileged. He is an international hotelier and serial entrepreneur, well known for his philanthropic ventures and outspokenness for the underprivileged of society.
When the lockdown was imposed, many amongst us came together to support our migrant workers and their families. Similarly, Suresh Nanda had joined hands with South Women Association, an NGO that is engaged in providing healthy, safe, and nutritious food to our daily wagers.
He also took this as an opportunity to serve as many as possible in this unprecedented crisis. Therefore, he had also donated food items to a Delhi-based religion-spiritual organization that runs multiple charitable and philanthropic campaigns. These food items were sent to help Covid-19 hit victims.
Suresh Nanda, while commenting on the issue said, Our hearts go out to all those who are struggling to make their ends meet during these testing times. We are trying our best to support our employees as well as the communities around us. Though the times are tough, we must help each other in every little way we can.
Owing to the seriousness associated with the outbreak of the pandemic, he was first amongst the ones who called for an integrated social action to protect the vulnerable of the society. "It is important that we collectively take the onus of helping them in every little way that we can, he further said.
For decades, he has been working with the Savera Foundation, which is actively working to alleviate critical social conditions for the underprivileged living in Basti of Srinivaspuri, Delhi. He has been constantly supporting free education, essential health services, and food to the impoverished. He fostered his efforts to maximize the beneficiaries through his donations with the outbreak of the pandemic.
