Honda India Foundation, the corporate social responsibility arm of Honda Group, will donate Rs 11 crore to the COVID-19 Defense Relief Fund in India. As part of the assistance, 2,000 units of Honda’s high-pressure backpack sprayers will be provided to various government agencies.

These lightweight and powerful sprayers can be used to disinfect hospitals, public transport, railway stations, public canteens, and public places. Honda has taken the necessary steps in consultation with the government. This is part of the auto industry’s support for India’s COVID defense. Public hand hygiene, like handwashing, is crucial in preventing the spread of the virus.

Also, all the production units at the local level will support the activities of the local bodies. All the ambulances at Honda’s plants will be made available for medical purposes. Food packets can be used to distribute and protect the poor and marginalized.

Honda will also donate to the States Relief Fund, which has Honda’s production plants.

The COVID-19 has created an unpredictable situation at all levels of society and individuals and corporates have come forward to support India’s efforts against the coronavirus. Honda India Foundation Chairman Minoru Kato said Honda was “very supportive” of the government’s fight against the COVID-19.
