Motilal Oswal Foundation extended its support to Bharatiya Jain Sanghatana to initiate relief and rehabilitation work at Nepal post the devastating earthquake of 2015. Immediate steps were taken by distributing food packets, organizing meal camps and medical OPD camps. 3 critical care ambulances were also deployed in Nepal to reach out to remote areas.
The Foundation partnered with 3 organizations in their efforts to tackle the drought condition in Maharashtra.
Paani Foundation, an initiative started by Aamir Khan launched a creative way to tackle drought conditions. It announced a competition – ‘Water Cup’ wherein the participating villages competed to create watershed development. 116 villages across Satara, Beed & Amravati competed to make their village water-sufficient through shramdaan. MOF aided 11 villages to be part of this initiative. The competing villages created total storage facility for 1,368 crore liters of water.
On the other hand, through Dilaasa Sanstha financial aid and seed distribution for farmers was carried out. With the support of MOF, Bharatiya Jain Sanghatana undertook activities such as water distribution, de-silting of water bodies and widening of bunds.
