We are committed to building a better world for all, especially when our people and communities need us the most. As India continues to battle the second wave of COVID-19, our colleagues are working with public and private stakeholders to address the critical needs of affected communities.
Donating key medical supplies to aid the fight against COVID-19
In May, AB InBev India worked with state governments, medical institutions, and NGOs to equip 50+ villages in India with over 300 oxygen concentrators; more than 900,000 meals benefiting 8000+ families; 500,000+ medical-grade surgical masks and over 5,000 COVID-19 testing kits. The team is currently setting up a COVID-19 hospital bed extension with ICU facilities in Bengaluru to address immediate requirement of critical care units.
Providing essential provisions to families
Building on our efforts to address immediate needs brought on by COVID-19, AB InBev India's Crown and Charminar Breweries in Sangareddy, Telangana, pledged to support nearby communities affected by COVID-19 with essential ration kits. As a result, more than 2,000 families across 11 villages in the Sangareddy district were provided with 15 kg essential ration kits consisting of superior quality rice, atta/wheat flour, oil, spices, different lentils, salt, and sugar, along with sanitizers and soaps.
“We stand in solidarity and pledge our full support to communities and the government. The health and safety of our communities and people continue to be our top priority, and we look forward to emerging triumphant in this war against COVID-19,” says Kartikeya Sharma, President – India & South East Asia, AB InBev.
Continuing to extend our support
Our purpose of bringing people together for a better world is more relevant than ever. We're always here for our customers and consumers, and we will continue to offer support to communities.
We are collaborating with medical institutions, corporates, NGOs and the government to extend our support during these unprecedented times.
“We are all in this together,” said Kartikeya Sharma.
