Eradicating hunger, poverty and malnutrition, promoting health care, sanitation & safe drinking water

Sub Thematic Area

Project Synopsis

Disposal facility for infectious used masks to the police force to contain the spread of Covid19 infection. Using face mask is extremely crucial and similarly being responsible while disposing the used masks is equally responsible. The police force is the most affected from the Covid19 infection while protecting us. This is primarily due to lack of proper sanitation. A lot has been done, but the safe disposal of used masks is still neglected to a large scale. We felt the need and had approached police commissioner of Pune city and have received official letter of request for this facility from around 68 police station serving more than 5000 policemen.

Proposed Project Description

In the current pandemic situation, we have developed a mask/gloves waste disposal equipment to make sure that the infectious waste is contained and does not spread further and  the sector which requires this type of solution urgently are the police stations and hospitals.

We all are aware of how the Covid19 virus has infected our policemen working day and night for us. One of the reason for this spread is that currently the masks and gloves used by the policemen are usually disposed with normal waste and is carried or handled by multiple people. Thus, it is crucial that the used masks does not get mixed with normal waste but are disposed in a touchless and decentralized way.

Thus, we are proposing you to help our city police stations to equip them with such machines to contain the infection. Multiple police stations had approached us for a solution earlier, but due to lack of financial aid, they were unable to install the solution. We request you to kindly donate the same to them through your CSR initiative.

Attach with this, the official letters of request from multiple police stations. Current requirement is of 68 units. Incase, you are willing for covering more police stations, we can get the letters from containment zone police stations as well.
