ReNew Power announced that it will contribute to the central and state governments’ efforts to combat the COVID-19 pandemic in India. ReNew is initially committing Rs 20 crore to this initiative. Out of this, Rs 10 crore will be contributed to the PM CARES fund, and Rs 5 crore will go towards the Chief Minister’s relief fund in various states. The rest will be spent on several activities targeted to directly help communities impacted by the lockdown and to bolster the health infrastructure to tackle the pandemic.
ReNew Power will focus on feeding migrant labourers, daily wage workers and locals around its sites spread across the country by distributing dry ration packets in conjunction with the local administration. The company will be working across its sites in the states of Gujarat, Rajasthan, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra and will cover around 140 villages. ReNew is adopting a village in Haryana, where around 350 vulnerable households will be provided with dry ration and hygiene kits.
