Chaudhary Foundation, a forerunner in disaster response got to work immediately. Various discussions and meetings were held with health professionals and government officials to come up with a countermeasure for the looming catastrophe. We took a swift initiative to overcome the crisis of lack of infrastructure and technology, limited testing kits and Personal Protection Equipment (PPE).
We took it upon us to provide essential medical equipment to health personnel. In a three-phase campaign between March to May 2020, Chaudhary Foundation distributed PPE, surgical masks, N95 masks, hand sanitizers and oxygen concentrators to over 119 government hospitals, district administrative offices and health posts. Additionally, 1000 testing reagents required by Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT PCR) machines were handed over to the Minister for Health and Population, Hon’ble Bhanu Bhakta Dhakal on 8th April 2020. Although our support was minuscule, we are proud to have helped our government to some extent.
In continuation of the COVID-19 Prevention and Protection Campaign, Chaudhary Foundation provided medical equipment to 30 birthing centers in Province 2 on 5th June 2019. CG Foundation India also extended support to Delhi Government’s ongoing relief efforts for COVID 19. Pledging to deploy resources for the ongoing relief efforts, International conglomerate, CG Corp Global’s CSR arm, CG Foundation India committed essential support to the vulnerable communities in the region to mitigate the impact of the pandemic.
Wai Wai Noodles packets were distributed with support from NGOs, the Delhi Commission of Women (DCW) and local community leaders under the Delhi Government’s direction. The outreach included displaced artists, craftspeople, waste collectors, mines workers, industrial workers, stranded migrants, refugees and sex workers & their children.

Nepal Earthquake, 2015 Rebuilding Nation

Major earthquakes struck Nepal on April 25 and May 12, 2015, affecting 5.6 million lives. During such disasters we stand strong as a Group. We tried our best to help the devastated communities. Despite our own grief and pain, our Group was there to provide immediate response to the communities. We started relief camps in 5 CG|Education Schools located in Kathmandu Valley on the same day of the disaster. Relief camps provided free food, shelter and medical supplies.

CG Shashwat Dham

CG Shashwat Dham is a spiritual and leadership development center located in the CG Industrial Park, Nawalparasi, Nepal. The center conducts regular programs to train and inspire the youth to take up social responsibility in their respective areas. The center was established with inspiration from Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, founder of Art of Living International. The center has a Vaidik Karmakanda Gurukul, a Gaushala, a library, and many more things to interest a Sattvik mind.
Shashwat Dham is one of Nepal’s most popular tourist destinations. With the stunning Ekambareshwar Shiva Temple, a Buddhist centre and a yoga retreat, the site attracts visitors from all walks of life. With the divine blessings of Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar Ji and Sri Kanchi Shankaracharya Jagadguru Jayendra Saraswati Ji, Shashwat Dham aims to be a destination for everyone to attain spiritual strength, immerse themselves in eternal knowledge passed down by generations of saints and sages of Vedic times and experience love and joy — the true nature of our inner being. The idea for Shashwat Dham was conceived over 20 years ago when Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar Ji came to Nepal. He told Chaudhary that although Nepal has innumerable temples, it lacked good Karma Kanda Pundits, who were well versed with Vedic knowledge and practices. This inspired Chaudhary to build a temple that wasn’t just a place of worship but a place that delivers true pundits, who uphold and preserve the spiritual and religious values of the Sanatana Dharma. The site is also home to a spiritual museum, numerous beautiful statues, a Dhunge Dhara, a heritage store and much more. Shashwat Dham hosts a Vedic Karmakanda Gurukul, where young Brahmins can learn the knowledge and ancient methods needed to perform various rites, rituals and poojas alongside their standard education as well.

A permanent center for artificial limb fitment camp is established by Chaudhary Foundation in Nawalpur district. The research shows that about 100000 people in Nepal are living without legs or hands which they lost during accidents, health reasons, civil war and even the birth defects. Chaudhary Foundation conducted two such camps in Kathmandu and Nawalpur and was inspired to observe the impact of people by providing them an artificial limb. Thus a permanent center was created in order to make beneficiaries independent and help find themselves livelihood opportunities through a rehabilitation program. Almost around 700 beneficiaries have received such limbs so far in the lastyear.
