Corporate Social Responsibility

A deep commitment to the communities in which we operate has been a core part of UD Group’s heritage from its creation. UD Trading therefore commits to continuing its role in supporting those in need, particularly through cleft pallet programmes that provide vital support to underprivileged children.

UD Trading and its employees are proud to be associated with these two major projects and to be able to provide valuable assistance:

The Cleft Project

The Cleft project in India promoted by the Maaya Foundation has successfully operated on over 7,500 underprivileged children with cleft palates. The team works tirelessly to provide free care for these patients including transportation, hospital accommodation and food. The patients are also entitled to follow up therapy at no cost.

UD Group has supported Maaya Foundation's centre in Mumbai at Navneet Hospital, Dahisar and in Surat at K P Sanghvi Hospital, which have been able to create awareness on cleft and facial deformities. UD Group has aided this project by sponsoring 23 cleft palate surgeries between 2012 and 2013for those that otherwise wouldn’t have been able to fund themselves.

We look forward to supporting this organisation further and building awareness of such charities and important community support.
