Safexpress as a company has always believed in philanthropy and contributed relief material as well as provided rehabilitation assistance during natural disasters, such as Leh cloudburst, Gujarat earthquake, the Tsunami tragedy, Mumbai and Bihar floods and numerous other occasions. Employees have whole-heartedly participated in the company's relief and rehabilitation activities through donations and voluntarily offering their services.
On August 6, 2010, when Leh was ravaged by a fatal cloudburst, after a night of heavy downpour, many buildings were destroyed including Hospitals, bus terminals, radio station transmitter, telephone exchange and mobile-phone towers. Safexpress tied-up with Aidmatrix, an NGO, and provided it with logistics support for the tents, blankets, lanterns, clothes, food, and many other things.
In December of 2004, when Tsunami struck the Indian coast and numerous islands in the Indian ocean, taking away lives, livelihoods and dreams of many, Safexpress rose to the occasion and helped in rehabilitation work in the areas affected by tsunami by partnering with various NGOs.
Safexpress contributed in cash and kind to NGOs working in the areas of community health and housing, reconstruction of schools, livelihood restoration and economic recovery and reef ecosystem conservation. Apart from contributions made by staff, customers and the company, Safexpress used its massive network, fleet and reach to provide logistics support for the relief material to be shipped to the affected areas from across the country.
In August 2008, more than 3 million people were left homeless by the worst flooding in 50 years in Bihar. Nearly 15 million people were directly afflicted by the flood. In 19 districts, 6000 villages were submerged by the Kosi River. The flood destroyed all the crops in its way. The people in the affected areas were left with nothing. It had become next to impossible to send the relief material by road since everything was submerged under the water. Safexpress utilized its fleet to get the relief material gathered by different NGOs from across the country to the flooded areas. Indian Air Force Helicopters carried out the relief work by disseminating the relief materials brought by Safexpress.
The Gujarat earthquake in 2001 occurred on January 26th, India's 51st Republic Day. The epicenter was Bhuj in Gujarat. With a magnitude of between 7.6 and 8.1 on the Richter scale, the quake killed around 20,000 people injured another 167,000 and destroyed nearly 400,000 homes. The shock waves spread 700 kms and 21 districts were affected with over 600,000 people left homeless. Safexpress organized a massive relief campaign for the affected people by providing clothing and also making arrangements for their shelter. Although, the regular operations of Safexpress in Gujarat were adversely affected, the company participated wholeheartedly with various NGOs and government agencies in relief efforts.
