HMIF initiatives on road safety, pond restoration

Hyundai Motor India Foundation (HMIF), the philanthropic arm of Hyundai Motor India, on November 26 announced an ambitious project on road safety.

The unique project with campaign message, ‘Dhyan Do’, will emphasise on road safety and self-healthcare of public/private transport drivers, said a press release. 

With an attempt to cover more than 34,000 drivers every year, the programme will offer free preliminary health check-up of public transport drivers with curative and preventive counselling by qualified doctors at various touch-points with a sustained follow-up plan. 

In addition to this, HMIF will also conduct cluster awareness clinics for sensitising about road safety and health implications on drivers.

Two days earlier, HMIF announced the third edition of ‘H-Social Creator’, a youth contact CSR programme. It will encourage young minds to deliver innovation in areas of road safety, environment, Clean India, and healthcare.

The Foundation aims to reach over three lakh students across 150 colleges and will award a seed capital of Rs. 15 lakh to the winning idea with the aim to create sustainable and meaningful change.

In yet another initiative, the philanthropic arm of Hyundai Motor announced eco-restoration of three ponds, one each in Hariahera in Sohna, Palasoli in Pataudi and Tajnagar in Farrukhnagar blocks of Gurugram, in collaboration with GuruJal Society.

GuruJal is a multi-stakeholder body, headed by the Deputy Commissioner of Gurugram. It is aimed to address water scarcity, ground water depletion, flooding and stagnation in Gurugram.
