Our gratitude goes out to such organisations who are implementing thoughtful programs to assist those affected by this pandemic. We hope our collective efforts can add significant value to the city’s overall relief measures".
Speaking on the initiative, Prashant Tripathy, Managing Director & Chief Executive Officer, Max Life said, “The COVID-19 crisis has had a deep and significant impact on communities and various sections of the society. As a responsible corporate citizen, Max Life stands united with the district administration of Gurugram to support the COVID-19 patients, health professionals and police personnel fighting this pandemic. We hope our humble contribution helps make a difference in the lives of the COVID-19 warriors by safeguarding their health and keeping them protected.
