The devastating Fani Cyclone caused havoc in the state of Odisha. It has rendered many homeless, caused severe loss to property, destruction of infrastructure and claimed many lives.
As a responsible Company, Hindustan Unilever Limited (HUL) has always stood by the country and its citizens. This time as well, the Company has stood in solidarity with Odisha in this crisis.
In the aftermath of the calamity, we ensured that our employees in the region and many others who work across our value chain are safe. The Company immediately extended support worth ₹ 25 lakh, in-kind and cash to our employees and distributors. The Company has further contributed ₹ 2.5 crore through a cheque to the Honourable Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik towards Odisha State Disaster Management Authority for rehabilitation work. Additionally, we have provided health kits worth ₹ 40 lakhs that have been handed over to ‘Bharat Sevashram Sangha’, Puri under the guidance of local authorities.
