~Aviva India pledges an extensive support package to impacted societies and communities ~        


The Coronavirus or COVID-19 crisis continues to severely impact communities across the nation. Aviva Life Insurance, (JV between Dabur Invest Corp and Aviva International Holdings Limited), India’s most trusted private life insurance company 2 years running, commits to helping the Indian Red Cross Society, (IRCS), with a range of protective equipments and relief packages to mitigate the Covid-19 crisis. Through this initiative, Aviva India will be reaching out and assisting affected people to combat this disease across 15 states in India that are badly affected by COVID-19 outbreak.


The support to the India Red Cross Society (IRCS) forms part of the £10m pounds committed by the Aviva Group and the Aviva Foundation* so that the global Red Cross movement can ensure those made most vulnerable by the coronavirus outbreak can get the right support at the right time.


In line with this, IRCS is helping Aviva Life Insurance, India to donate various pandemic relief packages to the most affected during this crisis. The relief packages include N-95 masks, gloves, surgical masks, thermal guns, hygiene kits, community kitchen and dry rations for the affected communities. The initiative focuses on migrant laborers, tribals, single mothers, senior citizens, persons with disability, children, people living in hard to reach areas, as well as Health Workers, Paramedics, Blood Bank Staff and Red Cross Volunteers. 


Migration is a major concern in and around major cities in India, and the restrictions on movement to return to their native homes, due to the lockdown, has further escalated the problem of food, medication, hygiene and shelter. IRCS volunteers are addressing their specific needs and are working to provide food parcels, cooked food and dry rations and hygiene kits to the most vulnerable households and migrant laborers in the temporary shelters.


When the nation is facing unprecedented challenges, Aviva India is enabling ICRS to serve, support and protect Health Workers, Paramedics and Red Cross Volunteers, who are working tirelessly to help those in need during these times.


*The Aviva Foundation is administered by Charities Trust under UK charity registration number 327489.
