Realizing the need to reassure and support people in the time of such a grave crisis, Safe Guard teamed up with News 1st – as two responsible brands – to safeguard the citizens in their hour of need.

Safe Guard and News 1st reached out to kids through an art competition to drive home the importance of hand hygiene and mask wearing. Children are the future of the nation and by engaging with them and showing their care and concern for them, Safe Guard and News 1st gained the trust of families as a responsible household brand. Further, online Webinars are also being held to engage similarly with corporates on the subject of sustaining health during the pandemic. By inculcating good hygiene practices in the workplace, infections are lower and businesses can proceed without disruption.
