Gurgaon. Sep 8, 2020.   Shraadh also is known as Pitrapaksha is a 16–lunar day period in Hindu calendar when people pay homage to their ancestors, especially through food and cloth offerings. As this year, Pitrapaksh arrives amid critically evolving COVID-19 situation in India, India against Corona (a social initiative by cAAretech limited) has come together with Oro Cabs to celebrate the spirit of honoring our ancestors and helping our elderly by collecting food, clothing, Covid protection items providing them safety essentials to be safe against virus infection at their doorsteps from this week up to 12th Sep 2020.


Oro Cabs in association with the NGO, India Against Corona are collecting essentials for more than 500 abandoned parents residing at Gurukul Old Age Home managed and run by Earth’s Saviour Foundation by Mr. Ravi Kalra.


The idea is the brainchild of Ms. Arniika Josshi, Founder, India Against Corona, who said “ Just like our parents nurture us when we are young, it is our responsibility to take care of them when they become old, hence we thought of a drive called parentAparent, which is a small test to crowdsource essentials from across Delhi NCR and make it available to the needy starting with The Earth Saviours Foundation, Gurgaon which has championed the cause of assisting more than 500 abandoned parents in their old age home. And to ensure people don’t have to move out in these socially distant pandemic times, we are glad Oro cabs has graciously agreed to facilitate the entire drive.”


Mr. Arpan Agarwal, Founder and CEO, Oro Cabs said, “Our idea of associating with India against Corona and serve our elderly people is to fulfill our responsibility towards the less enabled sections of society and we are profoundly delighted to help them in order to celebrate our traditional values linked to the month of Pitrapaksh. Oro cabs will ensure that our hygienic, world-class cabs are there at your doorstep to collect your contributions and take them to the elderly abandoned parents residing at Gurukul old age home”


The inspiring duo of Corona warriors, Oro Cabs and India Against Corona, have come together during at this peak time of global pandemic which has caused a dip in contributions and assistance to many NGOs.
