* Supplies life-saving drugs worth $30,000 in the first batch
Responding to the Ukrainian Embassy’s request for humanitarian aid in the form of life-saving medicines for displaced people in the war-ravaged country, Venus Remedies Ltd, one of India’s leading research-driven pharmaceutical companies, has dispatched the first batch of essential medicines worth $30,000 to Ukraine through its embassy in New Delhi.
Appreciating the gesture, the Ukrainian Embassy said in a statement issued on May 2 that Venus Remedies has “proved that it is not only a business-oriented company but also a responsible organisation which has always stood firm for such noble causes to help people around the globe”. “We thank Venus Remedies for providing aid to the people of Ukraine in their most difficult times and readily accepting our request to supply us life-saving drugs free of cost,” it said.
Akshansh Chaudhary, President, HR, Venus Remedies, who flagged off the relief aid from the company’s premises in Panchkula, said, “With millions of people bearing the brunt of this devastating war, it is a humanitarian crisis that calls for the need to rise to the occasion and reach out to Ukrainians with life-saving essential supplies."
Praying for an end to the violence and human sufferings in Ukraine, Venus Remedies employees have been holding candlelight vigils at Venusian Chambers, the company’s upcoming headquarters in Dappar, and illuminating the office building in colours of the Ukrainian flag.
The company has also launched a social media campaign to motivate people in India and abroad to make voluntary contributions for the noble cause. Venus Remedies employees have responded enthusiastically to the appeal by coming forward with donations in large numbers.
