As part of its CSR initiative to extend a helping hand in this time of crisis that the country is facing, Aakash Educational Services Limited (AESL), the national leader in test preparation services, has joined hands with apex industry body, Assocham, in supporting the food requirements of 500 healthcare professionals and workers at the new facility specially set up at Safdarjung Hospital in the city to care for Covid-19 patients. 

In conjunction with the foundation for corporate social responsibility,the educational institution will support lunch and dinner for 500 healthcare personnel (1,000  food  packets) every day for one week.

Safdarjung Hospital has set up a new 500-bed facility for the care of patients affected by Covid for which it will be using a dedicated staff of over 1,500 healthcare professionals.

Aakash Chaudhry, director and CEO, Aakash Educational Services Limited (AESL), said, “We feel it is an honour for us if we can in anyway support our Covid Heroes in this time of crisis when they are doing a great service to mankind for being at the forefront of this war that we are fighting against an unknown virus.”

“It is our responsibility to support our Covid-19 frontline workers, doctors, nurses and healthcare personnel, who are working around the clock to save precious lives. I urge people and organisations to contribute and help our country in whatever way possible. At this moment, the need to help the world is greater than at any other time,” he added.

Deepak Sood, chamber's secretary-general, said, "We are very pleased to collaborate with our esteemed member organisations to support India's fight against the Covid-19 pandemic thereby extending the spectrum of initiatives being undertaken as part of corporate social responsibility (CSR) in these testing times.” 

“In our endeavour to advance CSR initiatives aimed at supporting our communities we have joined hands with Aakash Educational Services Limited to provide packed meals (twice a day) for 'corona-warriors' including the healthcare professionals, cleaning staff and others for the current week at Delhi's Safdarjung Hospital's new 500-bed facility for Covid-19 patients," he added.
He said that Assocham will continue supporting such initiatives as community service is firmly rooted in the chambers' core values.

The educational institution has always risen to the needs of the nation in the past. Last week, AESL had made a humble contribution of Rs 1 crore out of which Rs 50 lakh have been donated to the PM Cares fund, to provide relief to people in any kind of emergency or distress arising out of the current situation.

Apart from that, AESL has also donated another Rs 50 lakh to the Delhi Police Welfare Society acknowledging the services rendered by the Delhi police and support them in these challenging times.
