MUMBAI: As part of its avowed commitment to extend a helping hand to marginalized sections of the society, Allcargo Logistics, global LCL consolidation leader and India’s largest end-to-end integrated logistics solutions provider, will support free-of-cost cardiac & other lifesaving surgeries for 50 underprivileged children.. Comprehensive cardiac care will also be provided to the children from needy families as part of this initiative.

“Children are the greatest asset of our country and the very foundation on which its future will be built and sustained. It is our foremost duty to ensure that our future generations are strong, healthy and disease-free. Allcargo’s collaboration with SRCC Children’s Hospital and Narayana Hrudayalaya gives us the opportunity to help children from underprivileged sections of society get advanced heart care and treatment, so they can live a better, healthier life. We would like to thank Dr. Devi Shetty for trusting us as partners in this noble endeavour,” says Mr. Shashi Kiran Shetty, Chairman – Allcargo Logistics, ECU Worldwide and Gati.

“India has the world’s largest number of children born with heart disease. Unfortunately, most of them cannot afford to undergo corrective heart surgery. Narayana Hrudayalaya with SRCC Children’s Hospital is extremely grateful to Mr Shashi Kiran Shetty, Chairman of Allcargo logistics and his family for coming forward to help us save the lives of children with heart disease. Their philanthropy will allow us to fulfil our mission of making healthcare accessible” says Dr. Devi Prasad Shetty, Chairman & Founder, Narayana Health

Upholding the belief that education is the key to building an inclusive society and nation, Allcargo Logistics will aim to bring these children into the educational mainstream under its Disha and Disha Career Seed projects, thus contributing to their social and economic empowerment too.

Avashya Foundation, the CSR arm of Allcargo Logistics, has been promoting inclusive people-centric development initiatives with an onus on community participation and development.
