Borosil joins fight against COVID-19
Provides PPE for Mumbai Police; glasses, flasks to health workers, hospitals and patients
Mumbai: In a three-way contribution drive, Borosil Ltd donated 2000 sets of Vision Glasses and 1000 Hydra Flasks to patients, quarantine facilities and health workers throughout the state of Maharashtra. Additionally, they have also supplied 500 Hydra flasks to KEM and Nair Hospital along with 500 Personal Protective Equipment kits to the Mulund West police station, which were personally handed to ACP Pandurang Shinde and Sr Inspector Sardesai.
While all our efforts are concentrated on relief, we often neglect those fighting the pandemic on the frontline. Borosil has made an effort to make its products relevant to the situation available to those most in need.
“These are trying times and we at Borosil have stepped forward to do everything in our capacity to lend support in fighting this pandemic. As conscientious and responsible citizens, we must join hands to help our doctors, police officers and all those on the front line who are working tirelessly to keep everyone safe. I pray everyone comes out of this stronger and that our joint and united efforts will put a quick end to this crisis.” said Mr Shreevar Kheruka, MD, Borosil LTD.
Keeping in mind the functionality and hygiene perspective for usage, Borosil has decided to donate products, which are of the best quality. The Vision glasses are naturally inert and are easy to sanitize. Made of borosilicate glass, the Vision Glasses can withstand temperatures of up to 350 degree centigrade and can be safely used. The Hydra flasks can keep water hot or cool for up to 24 hours and are useful to maintain healthy hydration for patients and support staff in the quarantine facilities.
The organization is working towards further product innovation to be able to contribute in a relevant and effective way to the ongoing situation to come together to support the community to fight this pandemic together.
