Hero MotoCorp Extend Its Support For Covid-19 Vaccination
The increase in vaccination, along with the opening up of businesses, is helping in the revival of sales. In fact, Hero MotoCorp has also extended its help in the Covid vaccination drive. The company had launched a unique welfare program to support the vaccination of women and children in Uttarakhand and Rajasthan. In addition to this, Hero MotoCorp also handed over 13 ambulances to strengthen the health infrastructure in Uttarakhand. In collaboration with the government of Haryana, Hero MotoCorp launched the Project ‘Corona Warriors on Wheels’. As a part of this, the two-wheeler manufacturer presented the state government with 70 motorcycles and scooters. These vehicles will help improve the mobility of the health workers that includes both doctors and medical staff.
This month, the two-wheeler manufacturer also achieved recognition for creating the ‘Largest Online Photo Album of People Planting Plants’. This is the second consecutive world record clinched by the motorcycle maker in successive months. Back in August, Hero MotoCorp received the Guinness World Record for creating the ‘Largest Motorcycle Logo’.
The company had launched a global initiative called ‘Ride For Real Heroes’, which was flagged off on October 2, 2021. The main aim of this event was to honour the frontline healthcare warriors all across the world. The participating riders distributed Covid-19 safety kits to doctors and medical personnel in over 100+ cities and towns across the globe.
