South Korean carmaker Hyundai, has donated Rs. 2 crores towards the Chief Minister's Public Relief Fund, to help the victims who are affected by floods. A cheque was handed over to Tamil Nadu Chief Minister, Jayalalithaa by Hyundai India's Managing Director, YK Koo.
Maruti Suzuki too helped flood affected victims, but in a different manner - by helping people service cars that were affected by the flood. The carmaker would bear 50 percent of the servicing cost, since insurance might not cover damages that were made.
Hyundai Motors has helped people with relief operations from the beginning of the month, by distributing food, clothing, and essentials that were very crucial. The carmaker will also help in sanitation and providing health camps, as part of the company's CSR.
Places in Chennai that are affected by flood will be cleaned with tractors and stagnant water will be treated with bleaching powder to keep water borne disease under control. Hyundai India has also distributed mats, bedsheets, and tarpaulins to help the victims in Chennai.
