Mukul Madhav Foundation, Finolex Industries and Gulf Oil Lubricants, in association with Pune Police and Traffic Police Department, came together to commemorate the Road Safety Week in Pune, in January 2017. The two corporates have together distributed 1,600 helmets and face masks to the Pune Traffic Police men and women.
To mark the occasion, a 36 km Road Safety Rally was organized on 15 January 2017.
The event witnessed participation from officials of Pune Police and Traffic Police department, employees of Finolex Pipes and Gulf Oil Lubricants, along with bike enthusiasts from the city.
The volunteers and participants of the rally created awareness on the necessity of following traffic rules and regulations for a smooth and congestion-free free driving experience.
With the help of Gulf Oil (Mr. Sanjay Hinduja), ZF Steering Gear India Ltd. (Mr. Utkarsh Munot), Indo Global Infrastructure & Utility Services Pvt. Ltd (Mr. Sanjiv Aurora) and Finolex Industries, MMF successfully raised 29.25 Lacs for the Bhatkya Vimut Jati Shikshan Sanstha (BVJSS) Ashram Shala in Wagholi, Pune, which is an orphanage housing 400 children. With the help of these funds, we helped rebuild their 4 kitchens, dining area, water proofing of the entire house, purchased new cupboards, repaired existing doors and windows and placed new ones where needed and donated 60 bunk-beds, 120 mattresses & pillows, 8 cupboards, 400 uniforms, 400 bedsheets with pillow covers and 400 Sholapuri chaddars for the children. We also painted the Sai Baba statue outside this ashram. It was indeed a heartwarming experience to see the children enjoy the new, better and safer conditions.
Further to this, Mr. and Mrs. Manish Jaitha of Jivraj Baloo Trust donated Rs. 5 Lacs, to begin a vocational project of goat farming, in a second home of BVJSS in Pabal, Maharashtra (35 kms further from Wagholi) where 50 children, who are mentally or physically-challenged reside. This project not only helps the children develop a vocational skill but also solves the problem of providing milk to all the children at the Wagholi house.
