Emaar MGF reaches out to children of construction workers

Moving a step further towards its social responsibility, Emaar MGF, one of India's leading real estate developers, has distributed New Year gifts to 350 children at its Palm Hills and Palm Gardens project sites in Gurgaon. Overall, the company will distribute 650 gifts to children of construction workers in Gurgaon and Mohali, through its campaign, 'Gift a Smile'. These are children of construction workers employed at the company's various projects in Gurgaon and Mohali. The gift distribution is a part of company's 'EmCare' campaign through which it conducts various activities for welfare of deprived sections of society.

Since its inception, Emaar MGF has conducted many CSR campaigns thereby helping many lives to survive, grow and keep smiling. The company is running a day care center for children of construction workers, at Palm Drive in Gurgaon through Mobile Creches, an organization which provides education, nutrition and health to children through the day. As part of its CSR mandate, the company also distributes free blankets to its construction workers every year. So far it has distributed more than 25,000 free blankets across India.
Emaar MGF is involved in CSR campaigns like donation to various relief funds, donation to NGOs working in the field of disability, education and healthcare. Last year, in the month of July when Uttarakhand witnessed one of the worst disasters, Emaar MGF contributed Rs 1 crore towards relief and rehabilitation along with Rs 3 Lakhs which employees contributed separately.
On this occasion Dr. K Ramamurthy, CEO-Projects at Emaar MGF said, "It is indeed a privileged moment for us. We believe it is imperative for an organization to give back a humble part of what it takes from the society. We continuously strive to be an entity that is socially committed by bringing together all our existing processes under the ambit of Corporate Social Responsibility through proactive initiatives."
He further said, "Construction workers are those who work behind the stage towards bringing our dream homes into reality. At times, we tend to forget their contribution. We at Emaar MGF always try to recognize their efforts. We distribute blankets in winter; organize day care centers for the children and health check-up camps on a regular basis. Our sole aim is to bring smile on the faces of these children."
