Rourkela: While SAIL, Rourkela Steel Plant (RSP) is making every possible effort to prevent the spread of the pandemic Coronavirus, Deepika Mahila Sangahti (DMS) a leading philanthropic organization of the Steel City is lending a helping hand in this direction.
The Sanghati through its Tailoring Unit is making masks on a war footing for use at Ispat General Hospital and employees of RSP.
The Sanghati has made arrangements for collection of the cloth of requisite specifications from Ispat General Hospital (IGH) and after getting it cut, delivering it at the homes of the women at their homes. The masks being stitched by the women are collected the next day and deposited at IGH. This way, Deepika Mahila Sanghati is able to deliver about 250 masks per day.
It is worth mentioning here that, Deepika Mahila Sanghati has all along been a partner in progress of RSP. The volunteers of the Sanghati manage many CSR initiatives of RSP like Deepika Hast Kargha, Deepika Ispat Sikshya Sadan, Jagruti Sanitary Napkin production centre etc. They are again extending selfless service to RSP when the Steel Plant is facing colossus challenges because of the Coronavirus.
