The Airports Authority of India (AAI) and the Hare Krishna Movement (HKM), Guwahati, signed a memorandum of agreement (MoA) at Bhubaneswar Borooah Cancer Institute (BBCI) on Tuesday for providing free meals to patients and their attendants on the hospital campus.

They will also provide free cooked meals to people coming to the hospital, including their employees.

AAI regional executive director M Suresh and Hare Krishna Movement temple president Vijay Dasa signed the MoA in the presence of BBCI director Amal Chandra Kataki.

“AAI has supported the cause for promoting the eradication of extreme hunger and poverty and has funded Rs 23.71 Lakh under its CSR schemes for this programme for one year from the signing of MoA,” a statement issued said.

They will distribute the food at BBCI and MMC Hospital through the members of HKM on the hospital campus two days a week as funded by the AAI.

The total number of beneficiaries is around 600 per day at these locations.

“The AAI has been working for the welfare of the society with several CSR schemes and in association with different organisations in the Northeast Region,” AAI regional executive director M Suresh said.

“Hare Krishna Movement is generously feeding the people, and we are happy to be associated with them in this noble cause. We have funded the eradication of extreme hunger programme for one year, which was earlier also funded by AAI for more than a year under the CSR scheme,” he added.
