IIFL Foundation, the CSR arm of IIFL Group, has begun donation of 500 COVID relief kits in the towns of Pratapgarh, Dungarpur, Jalore, Rajsamand, Khamnore, Jodhpur and Pali across the State of Rajasthan.
Each kit consists of a steam vaporizer, digital thermometer, pulse oximeter, face masks, hand sanitizer, toilet soap and detergent soap. The contents of the kit have been put together keeping in mind the lack of resources among the populace residing in these rural hamlets. These kits shall assist COVID patients in monitoring their health while they are quarantined at home.
IIFL Foundation team handed over these kits to the COVID warriors across several agencies. These include ASHA (Accredited Social Health Activist), ANMs (Auxiliary Nurse Midwife) and health officers, operating at the grass-root level across these rural hamlets. These community-level health workers are among the first ones to know about any new case in these towns. They will provide the kits to the patients placed under home isolation.
Madhu Jain, Director, IIFL Foundation said, “We continue to implement several initiatives to help our communities fight against the pandemic. Distribution of COVID relief kits is in sync with our objective of facilitating timely detection and treatment of the virus for the underprivileged populace. Our team is working closely with the authorities, warriors of the pandemic as well as the communities during this humanitarian crisis.”
Dr. Manish Singh Chaudhary (Block Chief Medical Officer), Lasadiya, Rajasthan said, ‘We are thankful to IIFL Foundation who has empowered our health workers with such thoughtful compilation of COVID relief kit. Our block is dominated by Scheduled Tribe population who do not have access to such healthcare devices. With these kits and the oxygen concentrators donated earlier, we are certainly armed to fight the pandemic.”
Sharada Parihar (ANM), Jalore said, “Thank you IIFL Foundation for choosing us for distribution of the kits, which have all the necessary devices. A small device like pulse oximeter has become extremely crucial in these times. We now feel confident of saving many lives with these resources.”
The Foundation has also distributed 175 oxygen concentrators in rural Maharashtra and Rajasthan. It donated a servo ventilator machine to the Holy Spirit Hospital, Mumbai earlier this month. The Foundation will continue to work with its partners and support its community during this crisis, and accomplish its mission to Conquer COVID.
