PC Financial Services raising awareness on importance of wearing masks

As part of its CSR initiative, PC Financial Services Private Limited – a Non-Banking Finance Company (NBFC) duly registered with the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) – carried out mask distribution drive in parts of Mumbai and Haryana to spread awareness about the importance of wearing masks in public amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

PC Financial Services in association with Abheet Foundation, a Gurugram based NGO as ongoing CSR activity has already distributed over 10,000 cloth masks and raising awareness among people on the importance of wearing masks.

Representatives of PC Financial Services have visited slums and villages in Gurugram, Manesar, Mumbai and Lucknow and distributed the 3-layer cotton masks while requesting villagers to put them on when outdoors. “People living and working in crowded environments are much more exposed and prone to contracting coronavirus in absence of basic health and safety protocols. It spreads at a faster rate in such places; hence we identified villages across states where people were made aware of the importance of wearing masks and maintaining safe distance at public places. Company representatives have distributed masks to the residents of Parel village in Mumbai and Ghata village in Manesar among others and also taught them the right way to wear a fabric mask,” said Mr. Raghuvir Gakhar, Chief Financial Officer (CFO), PC Financial Services Private Limited.

The company, along with its distributing partner – Robin Hood Army, plans to continue the activity by distributing masks in various other places including Delhi, Indore, Varanasi, Kanpur and Meerut in the next couple of days. “We are pleased to be associated with Abheet Foundation for a cause like this which was started in early September. Since then, we have been actively involved in distributing masks and educating villagers / slum dwellers. As a responsible company, PC Financial Services Private Limited has always believed in lending support to the underprivileged in times of crisis. Our target is to distribute 24,000 masks by the end of October. We are also thankful to Robin Hood Army who is helping us in this initiative by making the distribution process smooth and timely,” added Mr. Gakhar.
