Healthcare professionals and Police Personnel are our front-line soldiers in uniforms.

Mochi shoes supported doctors, nurses, health care workers and Police Personnel, by funding the distribution of PPE kits and 3 Ply masks in Mumbai. United Way of Mumbai helped the brand in procuring and distributing the PPE kits and 3 Ply masks.
PPE kits ensure the safety of the healthcare professionals from the deadly virus, while they are on the field helping people battle with the virus.
