Mumbai, July 14, 2021: Standing in solidarity with the Maharashtra Government’s efforts to overcome the COVID-19 crisis, Runaya Group, one of India’s fastest-growing manufacturing start-ups, has carried out a vaccination drive in Alibaug.

Most of the villagers inoculated were receiving their first dose of the vaccine. The vaccination camp has been organized under the guidance of Runaya’s Co-founder & CEO Annanya Agarwal, son of Navin Agarwal, Vice Chairman of Vedanta.
Speaking on the initiative, Annanya Agarwal said: “Runaya has been supporting the communities during the current pandemic.

In the coming days, we will hold more such vaccination camps for the benefit of our communities.”
The vaccination drive on Monday was attended by Shekhar Bali, Gram Sevak, Gram Panchayat, Navedar Navgaon and Parthana Bhoir, Administrator Officer, Gram Panchayat, Navedar Navgaon.
According to Administrator Officer, Parthana Bhoir: “Timely vaccination for everyone is our best chance to win this war against Covid-19. I thank Annanya and the Runaya Group for this drive, which is a proactive step in ensuring the safety of our people.”
