What are the social activities organized by Santiago Martin?

Working for society is the need of the hour for the development and advancement of our subcontinent. Stark differences between rich and poor, employed and unemployed, have divided the Indian population into different categories and resulted in the emergence of the "middle class".

To narrow down the widening gap between the rich and poor, and to provide an opportunity of livelihood to the poor, Mr. Santiago Martin, Founder, Martin Group of Companies, Chennai has constantly contributed towards uplifting the social state of the Indian subcontinent.

His social activities include food distribution programs, distribution of Covid-19 relief materials, helping out people from economically backward society, educating students and providing them with opportunities to shine out, and other CSR activities.

Santiago Martin also established the Martin Charitable Trust as a source of support for the needy and poor.

The programs organized by Martin Group of Companies, Chennai are as follows:
