Danube Group, a Dubai-based multi-billion dollar diversified business conglomerate, has risen up to contribute towards COVID-19 relief efforts in India. Danube has announced to donate 10 per cent of its group company Danube Home’s Dubai profits from its sales for the month of May which run into crores, to mitigate COVID-19 pains in India. The relief initiative will be handled by Danube Home Foundation, through which customers too will be urged to contribute towards this noble cause.
Danube Home will primarily be donating to oxygen provider agencies as well as NGOs in Mumbai, the city from where the company’s Chairman Rizwan Sajan hails. To begin with, Danube Home has already decided to donate to three institutions based in Mumbai which include Popular Front of Maharashtra, Rotary India and Kalsekar Hospital. Further, Danube Home is also looking to donate to NGOs across India engaged in COVID-19 relief operations.
Making the announcement, Adel Sajan, Group Managing Director, Danube Group, said, “Given the severity of the devastating pandemic situation in India, it’s our utmost responsibility to make efforts towards helping the needy and the sufferers across India. Since its inception, Danube Group has stood strong with the people of India to make a positive difference in the society. If we look at the nationwide fight against COVID-19, it is very much required for all organizations to come forward in every possible way to ensure that our citizens have seamless access to the healthcare services, oxygen and other necessary requirements which can save precious lives.”
