In these trying times, WRWWO is always on the forefront standing with the families of the railway employees and extending support and motivation to the employees. Railway employees were felicitated by WRWWO with cash awards for their commendable work during the Covid pandemic. Financial assistance was given to the staff i.e. Trackmen, RPF, Paramedics etc who have been working as frontline workers. Two washing machines and three hotplates were donated to RPF women staff of Rajkot, Ahmedabad & Bhavnagar divisions. To mitigate the hardships faced in performing dual responsibility of home and work and to facilitate comfort in their working, an automatic washing machine was donated by WRWWO to the ladies running room at Okha station. As a gesture of kindness, WRWWO distributed cash to 15 widows of railway employees who had succumbed to Covid-19 in their line of duty.
