Finolex Industries has pledged more than Rs. 9 cores for the second wave of COVID-19. The manufacturing company, along with its CSR arm Mukul Madhav Foundation (MMF), has mobilized resources, globally and in India to augment covid relief efforts in the country in collaboration with other corporates, NGO partners, philanthropic institutions, and likeminded individuals.
Through this collaboration, 945 oxygen concentrators, 218 ventilators, thermal scanners, PPE suits, oximeters, gloves, masks, sanitizers and paracetamol tablets have been donated to Covid care centres, municipal hospitals, and rural hospitals across the country, especially in areas that have witnessed a surge in cases.
The relief effort has safeguarded the ASHA and ANM workers along with frontline covid warriors in their fight against the virus. Support has been extended to many states including Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Rajasthan, Goa, Orissa, Jharkhand, and Punjab.
Ritu Prakash Chhabria, Managing Trustee, Mukul Madhav Foundation and Board Member Finolex Industries said, “We have brought people and institutions together to collectively combat the rapid surge in covid cases by augmenting public health infrastructure. We have raised resources by channelizing the support of our partners to ensure that the whole process of mobilizing funds, sourcing and procuring medical equipment logistics planning and execution is implemented smoothly and the neediest patients receive timely treatment.”
A large part of the relief operation’s success is attributed to the support received from Qatar Airways which has flown in the equipment free of cost. The ground support provided by Ashok Leyland ensured that the equipment crossed the length and breadth of the country safely and urgently even to the most remote corners.
Finolex Industries has been instrumental in helping with import licensing and volunteers from the organization have driven the coordination effort with local authorities and verified appeal requests to get the relief to the right places.
