Together We Can 

We are passing through an unexpected and unprecedented healthcare situation in the wake of the pandemic, the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). Recognizing the challenges due to this crisis situation, the Sehgal Foundation team is committed to spreading awareness and ensuring safety of our employees, community, and other partners and associates. We wish for you and your family to remain safe during this time.  

At Sehgal Foundation, we are taking preventive measures to mitigate the risk of employee exposure while adhering the 21-day national lockdown. Our office spaces are being sanitized on a regular basis and office premises fumigated. All our employees are working from home in coordination with their managers/supervisors through modern technical methods. These are tough times that require us to keep our heads above water. We firmly believe that together we shall overcome this situation and the crisis shall leave us with greater learning and fortitude. Until then, let’s remain focused on our tasks at hand and continue monitoring the health and safety of our families, teams, and near ones. 

Village communities need our help during this unprecedented time!

Impact of COVID-19 and lockdown is felt most severely amongst those who do not have access to the basics such as clean potable water, food and more, in particular information about the government relief programs.
