In August, severe flooding affected the region of Maharashtra, including at our Brahma production facility, displacing more than 1.5 million people. The Genus team and its partners worked tirelessly to evacuate people and animals from the facility, and also recovered relief materials (including medicine, dry food, utensils and toiletries) and shared them with the neighbouring village to help with the rescue operation. ABS India helped a number of families to re-build homes swept away in the floods and provided replacement school supplies for 300 students. Genus then set up a relief fund to support the local community, matching 100% of employee donations. Combined contributions to the relief effort from the wider Genus family totalled $52,000.
