Cyclone Michaung: Hyundai to donate ₹3 crore in flood relief to Tamil Nadu
Hyundai Motor India Foundation, the CSR arm of Hyundai India, has announced it will be contributing ₹3 crore to support communities affected by the Michaung cyclone in Tamil Nadu. The state is also home to the Korean automaker with its manufacturing facility located in Sriperumbudur, just outside of Chennai. Cyclone Michaung made landfall on December 5, which led to waterlogging in several areas, while thousands of people were evacuated from the coasts and low-lying areas.
Hyundai said that its onsite teams are working with the state government authorities to deliver relief including food, water, shelter, medical assistance and other essential commodities. Furthermore, the company is also offering emergency roadside assistance services to its customers in the state. Hyundai customers can reach out for help on the automaker’s customer care helpline number - 1800-102-4645.
