CSR

Orion’s efforts for Kerala Floods

Separator

When a devastating flood wreaked havoc across the state of Kerala, employees at Orion’s Kochi office were among the first to roll up their sleeves and get into the rescue act. Some of them helped set up an emergency help-desk at the District Collector’s Office that worked continuously on a 24x7 basis during the three worst days of the flood. They attended thousands of calls from affected people as well as from relatives living outside Kerala, and passed on the location coordinates to rescue teams, as well as details about the number of people stranded at a given location, their health condition, whether anyone was in need of immediate medical attention, availability of water and food etc. Using this information, teams engaged in rescue and relief operations were able to rescue thousands of people stranded in different parts of the district, and to reach food, water and medicines to hundreds of thousands of others.

A number of other employees volunteered to work in relief camps where people rescued from the flood affected areas were accommodated, ensuring they had a steady supply of food, drinking water, clothes and other requisites. Ham radio enthusiasts from the company ventured out into areas where communication lines had failed, and helped in coordinating rescue and relief operations.

Cleaning up after the flood waters had receded was another herculean task. Team Orion set out armed with buckets and brooms, first cleaning up the houses of employees who were affected, and then spreading their effort to wider areas.

Employees engaged in all these activities had the full support of the Company. Going beyond, as part of its CSR program the Company provided financial assistance to employees whose houses were badly damaged by the flood waters, and also offered interest-free loans to employees who were affected by the floods in any way.

Orion is a proud sponsor of the March of Dimes, March for Babies.
