Setting examples for others, budget airline Spice Jet has taken a pledge to help and provide relief to 11 villages in the drought-hit district of Latur.
The initiative has been taken to commemorate Spice Jet’s 11 years of flying and is in partnership with voluntary organization “AnybodyCanHelp”.
Under this pledge, Spice Jet plans to supply approximately 71,500 litres of water per day to its 11 adopted villages.
These adopted villages falls in Ausa Taluka area in Latur and is facing sever water shortage.
The water is going to be supplied in water tankers with a Spice Jet logo emblazoned on them.
The exercise to supply water already started on May 23 and will go on till June 23.
Talking about their initiative Ajay Singh, CMD SpiceJet, said:
“We are delighted to celebrate our 11th anniversary by lending a helping hand. The initiative makes this anniversary very special for all of us at SpiceJet.”
A good corporate deed, indeed. But will our corporates help in drought only to mark an anniversary? One wonders.
