General News ABP News Network launches special initiative ‘Senior Patrol’
Advertisement
#1
MUMBAI: As part of its social responsibility, leading news network ABP News Network (ANN) has launched a special initiative ‘Senior Patrol’. In partnership with Robinhood Army (RHA), ANN has undertaken this measure to help the most senior and susceptible members of society, amid the pandemic, by providing them with essentials like food, medicines, etc.

With a nationwide lockdown in implementation since March 25, infirm persons or elderly folk residing alone or away from their families & support networks are grappling with sourcing essentials like groceries and medicines.

ANN-RHA volunteers are on the frontlines in ensuring their distress is eased, by delivering these essentials at their doorstep. While doing so, the volunteers are following all the government, health, and safety guidelines along with social distancing measures to ensure safe & responsible deliveries. Additionally, ANN is also helping RHA in reaching out to wider audiences by promoting the initiative on their news channels and inspiring more volunteers to join the cause.

Under this initiative, those families in need can simply fill an online form (https://robinhoodarmy.com/seniorpatrol/), which will carry all the necessary contact details of the senior citizens and the essentials they need, in terms of food and medicines. As the delivery is completed, an update will be sent by the local Robins. If ANN-RHA is unable to provide help in certain cites, especially those with a high risk of spread, they will notify the primary family member who nominated his/her aged relative and figure out an alternative way to help.

Apart from keeping the viewers apprised 24×7, ANN has been taking several initiatives to fight COVID-19. The media group is pulling out all stops to support the government in its effort to contain the novel virus.

Speaking on this initiative, ABP News Network CEO Avinash Pandey said, “In these exceptionally challenging times, we take it as our duty to help those in dire need. We are proud to be collaborating with RHA to help the most susceptible members of society and we hope the citizens will join hands with us in overcoming these difficult times through their support. At ANN, we have always stood by the nation in its hour of need and created a meaningful impact in the society. This is our time to step up and spread energy, enthusiasm, and generosity.”
