Disaster relief operations -

Support for the Nepal earthquake victims poured in from all quarters at Apollo Tyres. The funds collected helped in providing emergency support like food, water, clothes, etc. to the victims. This initiative was undertaken with the help of our partner Akshaya Patra Foundation UK. The accumulated donations were made to the Prime Minister Relief Fund.

 

Apart from the donation and immediate assistance, Apollo Tyres took additional steps to contribute towards rebuilding infrastructure for the poor in Nepal. In partnership with The Global Education and Leadership Foundation (TGELF), Apollo Tyres undertook the rehabilitation of three remote villages of Nepal populated by the economically underprivileged. Despite the difficulties faced due to torrential rains and the remote location of the villages, the team successfully managed to construct over 450 disaster model toilets and provided solar lanterns to the villagers. The operations benefited over 800 households.
