CG Foundation distributes 10,000 ‘Wai Wai’ food packets to flood hit people in Assam
CG Foundation India, the CSR arm of CG Corp Global, today said it has distributed 10,000 ‘WAI WAI’ food packets to flood-hit 2,000 underprivileged families stranded in relief camps in Upper Assam.

The incessant rainfall in Assam has created a grim situation in the state with painful displacement and impact on humans and wildlife. The rising water level has severely affected the Tinsukia and Dibrugarh districts as the villagers have been evacuated to relief camps, it said.

“CG Foundation India is extending its disaster response by providing WAI WAI food packets which is pre-cooked food to multiple relief camps. …In addition to the 10,000 WAI WAI packets being provided, we are determined to continue to collaborate to provide relief in all possible ways to the impacted state,” CG Corp Global Executive Director Varun Chaudhary said in a statement.

The foundation has partnered with CII Young Indians and Round Table India who have helped identify the worst hit areas and reach the camps for food distribution, he added.

The volunteers spearheading the distribution are regularly interacting with the affected people in Assam and prioritizing those requiring immediate support.

Varun Jain, Chair, CII-Young Indians, Delhi Chapter stated, “Covid19 had already made 2020 a challenging year and the situation has now been massively exacerbated by extreme weather events and it is particularly impacting those, who are at the bottom of the pyramid. In these times, we are thankful to the leadership of CG Corp Global for coming forward, to provide support and relief.”

Nitin Agarwal, Area Chairman, Area 14, Round Table India, said, “The condition in upper Assam, especially in areas near Tinsukia and Dibrugarh is very grim due to floods.”

CG Foundation India, set up this year, is the regional extension of ‘Chaudhary Foundation’ which is the veteran CSR arm of Nepal-based CG Corp Global that manufactures WAI WAI instant noodles.
