Calling COVID-19 crisis as 'one of the toughest challenges that the human race will face', the 82-year-old businessman, who is well known for his philanthropy, shared the note from his charitable organisation.
The COVID 19 crisis is one of the toughest challenges we will face as a race. The Tata Trusts and the Tata group companies have in the past risen to the needs of the nation. At this moment, the need of the hour is greater than any other time. pic.twitter.com/y6jzHxUafM— Ratan N. Tata (@RNTata2000) March 28, 2020
