Care for Community

Read about Shell's efforts to support the local community in this time of uncertainty

COVID-19 has affected our daily lives but it has been more challenging for some than the others. As an essential services provider, we have seen the impact on the ground and have tried to reach out to the communities we serve. We have provided the ones in need with essentials, with the help of local governing bodies and organizations.

In most places, our care packages included basic food items that would help feed a family of four for almost 5 days. In some areas, we distributed basic hygiene products (soaps and sanitizers), and for migrants, we organized freshly prepared meals and face masks. The on-ground activities were driven by our retailers, dealers and their teams who have made a difference to the local communities over the past few weeks.

Detailed state-wise account our initiatives are captured below.

Please note: All necessary safety norms including social distancing were followed while carrying out the activities in order to ensure personal well-being of one and all.

Karnataka

Our retailers in Bangalore, Mysore and Hubli-Dharwad have been engaged in procuring, packaging and distribution of relief kits to the people most affected by COVID-19. So far, more than 4500 kits have been distributed in these 3 cities.

In Bangalore, our retailers in association with Shell Fleet Solutions team, have been distributing personal care kits consisting of sanitizers, disinfectants and Vitamin-C boosters to Uber Medic drivers, to help them ‘go well’ even in these difficult times.

One of our retailers from Bangalore, Mr. Lohith decided to dedicate his birthday to a special cause. He joined hands with a local NGO and donated groceries that can feed up to 50 families. Each bag of grocery contained rice, pulses, wheat flour and oil.

Our retail team from Bull Temple Road and Sankey Road stations decided to spend their after-duty hours at the ISKCON temple packing around 30,000 grocery kits. These kits are handed over every day to those who are badly impacted by the outbreak. Our team gladly volunteered to help in packing these kits as ISKCON was facing trouble due to shortage of manpower. 

Mr. Sovit Khemka and his team of brave hearts wanted to do a little something for the people in their trade area and approached the DCP of Whitefield for permission to distribute food packets. With the help of the local police authorities, they were able to distribute food parcels to around 500 families and further hand-over around 600 parcels to the local police station for distribution in the future as and when they deemed fit.

Maharashtra, Telangana & AP

Our retailers in Pune, Nashik, Vizag and Hyderabad, along with their teams, safely packed and distributed essential food items like wheat flour, rice and pulses to those who have been most affected by the lockdown. Through this activity, they were able to support the daily needs of over 500 families.

Our frontline team from Pimpri, Pune participated in a blood donation drive when the turn out to such drives is expected to be low on account of the lockdown.

Our retailers in Nashik interacted with around 100 children in Adharteerth Ashram. These children are from agricultural families that have lost their livelihoods due to various adversities surrounding Covid. Our retailers taught the importance of hygiene through demonstrations and provided the children with food packets and sweets.

The frontline teams in Pune also distributed masks and sanitizers to PCMC ward office which caters to 14 healthcare wards.

Gujarat

Our sites in Vadodara have formed a unique partnership with the local police. They are assisting our men in uniforms in taking care of their vehicles by offering periodic checks of the health of their vehicles.

Our retailers and their teams in Surat thanked the essential services personnel by offering them tea and snacks for their hard work during these challenging times.
