Canon India supports its adopted villages in times of COVID-19 pandemic

Canon India Limited has been actively involved in various CSR activities across India.

As part of its CSR initiatives Canon India, in its support towards India’s fight against coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, is providing essential food and sanitation items across its adopted villages and SOS homes. The company is providing 3000 food packets in its adopted villages. The food packets include essential ration items such as rice (5 kg), flour (5 kg), pulses (1 kg), salt (1 kg), sugar (1 kg) and cooking oil (1 kg). More than 12,000 people including the daily wagers and Below Poverty Line (BPL) families in the villages are expected to be benefited from the concerted efforts of the company.

Canon India’s NGO partner – Humana People to People is supporting in the procurement of food packets, packaging and distribution within the villages. In addition to this, to provide sanitation support to children of SOS Children’s Villages of Faridabad and Hyderabad, Canon India is distributing essential items such as sanitizers, liquid soap, cotton masks and other home cleansing products. Through this, the organization aims to support 500 children in these SOS villages for a period of one month, covering the 21 days lockdown period as well.

Kazutada Kobayashi, President & CEO of Canon India said, “With the COVID-19 pandemic, the entire world is going through challenging times indeed. In such an unprecedented and crucial situation, it is pertinent that we stand strong and show the best of humanity to combat this battle. With ‘Kyosei’ at the heart of our CSR operations, it has been our consistent endeavor to work together as one family and empower the less privileged ones. At Canon, we consider our adopted villages and SOS Village Family homes as our extended families. Hence, re-enforcing the commitment towards our adopted communities, we want to ensure their well-being and equip them to fight through these difficult times. Furthermore, it was also delighting to see Canon India employees come forward and contribute their bit towards the PM CARES fund, supporting the government’s relief efforts. Keeping our spirits high, Canon India family will make all efforts to bring a positive difference and emerge as winners in this fight against the pandemic."
