#TnlSalutes the hospitality industry for pitching in to help in the fight against Coronavirus. Joining the COVID-19 battle, is this yet another bigwig in the wellness and hospitality sector — Shreyas Yoga Retreat in Bengaluru.
The staff of Shreyas Yoga Retreat have been staying at the property since the announcement of the nationwide lockdown. And despite being away from their families during the pandemic period, they have stepped up to help those in need during this unfortunate time.
The retreat along with the Shreyas Foundation has been delivering essentials to the nearby villages. So far, they have managed to distribute goods such as whole wheat flour, onions, potatoes, spices, lentils, cooking oil and bathing soaps to 10 neighbouring villages and 1,800 families. Moreover, the yoga retreat’s CEO along with few people at the Rotary Club of Bengaluru has also been supplying essentials to 800 families in need.
Big hotel and restaurant chains across the country have been coming forward to help in the fight against the COVID-19. While some have been distributing meals to the needy, some have donated in the PM-CARES fund. Many are even providing free rooms to healthcare professionals and offering quarantine facilities to help tourists and others stranded in the country.
Moreover, with the quarantine stopping people from visiting restaurants, many have come up with a special home delivery menu for customers to order delicious, exotic meals from the comfort of their home. Similarly, taking utmost care of the wellbeing of their employees, many hotel owners have donated their salary in order to cover for the insurance of their staff.
Another initiative adopted by many hotels is providing online recipes of some of their chef’s special dishes, where chefs from renowned hotels have uploaded videos of recipes for people to learn and cook at home. Not just India, but high-end hotel chains in different parts of the world have been doing their bit to help people and the Government beat the Coronavirus pandemic.
