Vaccination and various other CSR initiatives undertaken by KSB Care Charitable Trust

KSB Limited, a leading German multinational pump manufacturer through KSB Care Charitable Trust has initiated the Vaccination Drive in towns where we have manufacturing / factory set up at Kesurdi (Satara district) and Sinnar (Nashik district) with an aim to cover 2500 villagers during the times when getting vaccinated has become a tough task for commoners. The Kesurdi drive was carried out with the assistance of Bel Air Hospital, Satara.  Our employees went around as volunteers to campaign and create awareness on vaccination.

In response to the vaccination drive, Mr. Rajeev Jain, Managing Director, KSB Ltd, said, "The coronavirus pandemic has hit us extremely hard; it has impacted many lives directly and indirectly and across the globe. KSB Limited empathises with people's anguish and is steadfastly assisting individuals in need through various CSR activities. Vaccination is critical in combating this lethal virus. Our goal is to encourage individuals to get vaccinated and to ensure these vaccines are available to those who are facing difficulty in getting vaccinated, and an aid like this will help the government in controlling the cases up to some extent.”

Commenting on the CSR initiatives, Mr. Shirish Kulkarni, HRD Director, KSB Ltd said, “As a result of the vaccination drive, our local communities in these places will receive prompt treatment and the best possible protection against the disease in this age of pandemic spread.
