Elan Group provides free 15-day ration to daily wage laborers in East Champaran


13 April 2020: Amidst the lockdown caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, realty developer Elan Group extended support to over 100 daily wage labourers in the East Champaran district, Bihar by providing free 15-day ration as well as distributing masks and sanitizers among them.

The initiative comes amidst the reports of a mass exodus of contractual workers from metro cities and daily wagers struggling due to the financial constraints and shortage of food.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the lives of all, especially the marginalized section of the society. As a responsible organization, we are committed to aiding them at this unprecedented time. This is a small step in our efforts to make lives brighter for the underprivileged,” said Ravish Kapoor, Managing Director, Elan Group. 

According to a company release, the ration comprises essential items such as two kinds of pulses, flour, rice, tea, salt, red chilies, soap, sugar, detergent, and toothpaste. Social distancing was duly followed in distribution with white circles being earmarked at an adequate distance for each individual.

Masks and sanitizers were also distributed to the needy and the organization is sensitizing them to wear masks and use sanitizers to reduce the transmission risk of the disease.


Ramashray Prasad, one of the beneficiaries, said: “We are unable to get work due to the lockdown. In such a situation, we are struggling to make ends meet. I would like to thank Elan Group for their support at this critical juncture.”
