AS a responsible corporate citizen, L&T Technology Services (LTTS) is aware of its special role in driving social well-being. Over the years, LTTS has undertaken several measures as part of its CSR commitment to help uplift society and has continued to support welfare measures even at the height of the pandemic.
 
A CARING HAND

COVID-19 has taken a toll on not just the elderly and the ill but also on children. To alleviate the sufferings of children orphaned in the pandemic, LTTS has joined forces with MILT Charitable Trust to provide permanent shelter to children orphaned by the pandemic. Christened Sneha-Hastha, the project will provide long-term support to children in need of a home. It will also focus on children’s extra-curricular activities such as exercise and dance, which will lead to their overall development so that their quality of life improves.
 
L&T Prayas Trust president Ms Meena Subrahmanyan launched the project in Bengaluru on 13 September. The event was attended by Mr M Lakshmanan (Chief Human Resources Officer – LTTS), Mr K N Prabhakaran (CSR Head – LTTS) and the trustees of MILT. Ms Subrahmanyan distributed gifts to some children supported by MILT. During the function, the children performed a few dance numbers.
 
SISTERLY SUCCOUR
 
To provide relief and shelter to children of COVID-19 infected parents in Bengaluru, LTTS, in collaboration with the SOS Children's Villages, has created temporary relief shelters for girl children missing the affection and protection of parental care. The shelters are located at the SOS Villages’ lush, green campus in Bengaluru where children are cared for and nurtured by matrons affectionately known as ‘mothers’ and ‘aunts’.
 
Ms Subrahmanyan inaugurated the initiative on 13 September. Mr Lakshmanan and Mr Prabhakaran were present. Ms Subrahmanyan also put smiles on the children’s faces by gifting them sports kits and clothes, while donating surgical masks and sanitisers to the SOS Village. The management of the SOS Village took her on a tour of the campus, and she was all praise for the quality care provided to children both at the short-term facilities and the permanent shelters.
