“The onset of COVID-19 changed the economic and industry outlook in a very short period. As an organization working towards social causes we understood the challenge and mobilized resources towards the most urgent need i.e. food. Providing nutritional food became our topmost priority, and we started to reach out to the most underserved areas of the nation to ensure that no one sleeps on an empty stomach. With restrictions being eased, we hope to continue to work towards providing and supporting basic amenities, while aiding our partners in their social mission.” said Mr. Santanu Mishra, Co-Founder, and Executive Trustee, Smile Foundation.
