CSR arm of Mirae Asset holding free Covid vaccination drive in Mumbai

Mirae Asset Foundation (MAF) has initiated a major vaccination drive to facilitate free vaccination to over 15,000 people in Mumbai. MAF is the Mumbai-based charitable and CSR arm of Mirae Asset’s businesses in India.
MAF has tied up with Holy Family Hospital (HFH) in Bandra and Nanavati Max Super Speciality Hospital to offer free COVID-19 vaccinations in Mumbai to increase vaccine uptake. The vaccinations by Nanavati Max Super Speciality Hospital will be done at Jamnabai Narsee School at Vile Parle West. A brief on the registration process and information is available on Mirae Asset Foundation’s page on the Mirae Asset website.
The firm sees this as a strategic CSR initiative to rapidly reach herd immunity. This comes at a time when Mumbai and Maharashtra’s cases are declining and lockdowns are being lifted, so immediately increased access to vaccinations will ensure that more people are protected quickly.
MAF director Ritesh Patel said, “Mirae Asset is trying to do its duty as a responsible corporate citizen. Recognising the challenges to vaccine access, we are partnering with charitable hospitals that have a community health component in their health and hospital services.”
Since the onset of the pandemic, MAF has undertaken other innovative and strategic engagements against COVID-19. Through collaborations with various government agencies, MAF made significant endeavours for COVID-19 detection and testing in Mumbai and Thane districts. The foundation donated state-of-the-art RNA extraction machines, RNA extraction kits, an RT-PCR machine and industrial refrigerators to strengthen the capacity of Haffkine Institute, Parel, Mumbai and CSTM Hospital, Kalwa, Thane.
