As a part of its multidimensional interventions, ITC's PSPD Bhadrachalam unit has distributed free meals and groceries to the needy in all the villages in the Burgampahad Mandal and the PSPD Bhadrachalam factory catchment area. To ensure hygiene and health precautions, ITC PSPD distributed masks and hand gloves to truck drivers in Bhadrachalam and conducted awareness sessions for them on sanitization & cleaning of trucks.

ITC PSPD is working closely with local, State and National health care entities to conduct awareness programmes which emphasizes on the preventive steps to be taken, need for enhanced focus on sanitation and periodic usage of sanitizers and hand washes while simultaneously highlighting the process to be followed to report any symptoms.
