Mumbai police personnel who are out on the roads for most of the time of 365 days, be it for managing traffic, bandobast or protecting the citizens need protection from rain during monsoon so that they can perform their duty uninterrupted and more efficiently.”

Police personnel risk their lives every day to protect the natives of our nation and make it a safe place. Kudos Police Force.”
Alok Adhikari – Trustee of the non-profit organisation ‘Yashlok Welfare Foundation’ (YWF) said, “Every year when we train and help employ new unemployed underprivileged people which is not only a contribution to national income, but they also create reliable social safety nets for their families and communities. The protective gear has road safety messages printed on them, making the raincoat a beacon of road safety awareness. Since we believe in reusing waste for sustainability, the raw material used for the raincoat is made from recycled waste and the entire raincoat is recyclable. For the past six years, we have been getting very encouraging responses from corporates when we approach them for donations for Raincoats to the Police force. From the bottom of my heart, I thank all the participating Banks and Corporates who came forward to the noble cause of creating sustainable livelihood for the underprivileged which resulted in Raincoat suits for the Mumbai Police. We shall look forward to their continued support in the years to come.”
