This initiative is supported by rotary club’s CSR partner, Kubota Agricultural Machinery, India. GS Grewal, Senior Vice-President, Kubota India was present on the occasion.

Grewal said, “In this pandemic time, if our CSR can support the dire need of medical equipment required for COVID intensive care, then there cannot be any better service to the society.”


Sonia Meghnani, president of the Rotary Club of Pune Amanora said, “It has always been our endeavour to extend a helping hand to society. We are extremely grateful to our CSR partners who have enabled us to donate these machines at these difficult times when there is an urgent need for them.”


This is not new to Rotary Club of Pune Amanora and partners in fighting the pandemic situation. Along with the partner ecosystem they have managed to handover personal protection equipment (PPE) kits and fulfilled other requirements from medical staff to keep them safe. The legacy of enabling society to deal with challenges continues as a part of endeavour for Rotary Club of Pune Amanora. A few days ago, Rotary Club of Pune Amanora along with Spherule Foundation also contributed 10 lakh worth of ration kits and 2 lakh worth of education kits to needy families from the weaker section of society.

Meanwhile, Sonia Menghani informed that a detailed plan is being worked out to further empower the weaker sections, create women empowerment and maximize earning potential of villages adopted by Rotary Club of Pune Amanora. “Our sustainable water projects have changed the economy and quality of life of villages in the past and now it is time to reap the benefits by complementing them with initiatives like Hydroponic farming, women empowerment, mask-making to add to the prosperity and help the society. Our journey towards excellence should continue”, Menghani said.

Rotary Club of Pune Amanora is committed to fighting the pandemic and proud to be able to make a difference to people’s lives and looking for more CSR partners to take healthcare, empowerment, environment, education and water-related activities which it has embarked upon to the next level.
