1. Extending aid to tackle COVID 19 – Emergency Health Care Kits
With workplaces being shut down due to the nationwide lockdown, millions of households are suffering from cash crunch and do not have access to basic healthcare amenities. On account of the escalation in the cases of COVID-19, the Company Management felt the urgency to extend support to those in need to tackle this difficult situation.
With a view to foster our aim of rendering aid to the marginalized sections of the society during these tough times, as a part of the Company’s CSR Initiative, our team diligently acquired and distributed more than 200 Emergency Health Care Kits primarily to workers, housekeeping staff, security guards, drivers, washers, cleaners, etc.
The kits were a combination of a digital thermometer, steam vaporizer, and pulse oximeter which would help the recipients, their families, and friends to monitor and recuperate in case they may be affected from COVID 19.
2. COVID-19 Aid Initiative – Distribution of Oxygen Concentrators
With the second wave of COVID-19 accelerating at an unanticipated pace in April-May, 2021, the healthcare system was under severe pressure with the mounting number of cases that were vastly disproportionate to the availability of medical equipment and supplies, especially in Delhi/NCR. Such an unprecedented situation created an exigency for various individuals or Corporates to step forward to offer much-needed assistance to help combat the crisis.
IndiaMART identified the need and aided various medical institutions by providing Oxygen Concentrators, thereby catering to the shortage during the outbreak. Our team vigilantly and swiftly carried out the procurement and distribution of more than 100 Oxygen Concentrators, as part of the Company’s CSR initiative, to around 25 different Hospitals, Medical Institutions and Health Centers in the Delhi/NCR region.
3.COVID-19 Emergency Response
The Company felt the urgency to intervene and support the Government departments to contain the spread of COVID-19, an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus. We took an initiative and supported our NGO Partner ‘Sahyog’ for the distribution of PPE kits and masks to various frontline workers in various Government and Non-Government Hospital(s) in Delhi/NCR with the active participation of Senior Officials and other stakeholders.
