Runwal Foundation, in association with Mahavir Education and Research Trust, on June 25 inaugurated ‘Runwal Stays-Jogeshwari’, an initiative aimed at giving frontline runners a safe, secure, and fully-equipped stay option in these testing times.
Runwal Stays-Jogeshwari is a three-storey hostel space with accommodation capacity of 54 people, said a press release.
During the event, the Foundation handed over the facility to BMC to support the frontline runners.
The inauguration took place in the presence of Neelam Andrade, Dean of NESCO COVID Centre, Mehul Sakhala from Mahavir Education & Research Trust and Saurabh Runwal, Trustee member of Runwal Foundation.
Speaking about the initiative, Runwal said, “In light of the global pandemic and the depleting state to support the front-liners, the Group is providing rent-free fully furnished stay to them. With this initiative, we hope to unburden their families and protect them from the risk of COVID-19. These front-liners are risking their own health to keep our communities safe and functioning. Therefore, we pledge to support these warriors in every possible way to fight against this virus.”
Andrade said, “On behalf of the healthcare front liners, we thank Runwal Foundation and Mahavir Education and Research Trust for their valuable support.”
