While the entire state is facing the brunt of the impact of COVID-19, the cultural capital of Mysuru has been one of the cities to have been hit pretty hard by the virus. To help mitigate the impact, many initiatives have cropped up in and around Mysuru to resolve the issues of the poor amidst the crisis.
Well known for its CSR Activities, Edin Synergy is one organization that has stepped up its efforts in recent days.
Serving 1000 Meals/day in and around Mysuru
Around 150 HR’s in the city of Mysuru have come together to distribute 1000 meals per day across the city and surrounding areas.
