BAJAJ Group Commits Rs 100 Crore For The Fight Against Covid -19 1

Mumbai, NFAPost: Renewing its commitment to communities, government and local authorities in their fight against Covid-19, Bajaj Group under the leadership of Chairman Rahul Bajaj announced a total commitment of Rs 100 crore.

In a statement, Rahul Bajaj said all Indians need to come forward in ways more than ever before, to ensure that all citizens of the country have access to healthcare and other necessities of life.

“Through the last 130 years, Bajaj Group has stood strong with communities, government and local authorities to make a positive difference to society. Today we pledge Rs. 100 Crore to the fight against Covid-19. Working with the Government and our network of over 200+ NGO partners, we will ensure these resources reach those who need it the most,” states Rahul Bajaj.

As part of the financial support, the Bajaj Group will support the up-gradation of key healthcare infrastructure required to tackle Covid-19 in Pune.

“The aid will support the Government and identified private sector hospitals to upgrade ICUs, procure additional equipment and consumables including ventilators and personal protection equipment, enhance testing, and set up isolation units. These interventions will support communities in Pune, Pimpri-Chinchwad and rural areas of Pune,” states Rahul Bajaj

The group will also provide food and shelter by working with organisations in multiple geographies to extend immediate support to the most affected – daily wage workers, the homeless and street children. Bajaj group will support initiatives on food supply, shelter and access to sanitation and healthcare.

In addition to that, the Bajaj Group will also take part in rural care and livelihood aid taking into account a reverse migration to the villages that has been reported for the last couple of weeks.

“We are thus committing a significant portion of our support towards an economic aid programme in rural areas which includes a direct survival grant, followed by a livelihood intervention using a revolving fund model. The family pays back the loan from the earnings of the livelihood intervention – leading to 80% of funds provided to family being returned to a community fund for further deployment to others in need within the community. We will also work with authorities and partners towards creating awareness on Covid-19 and strengthening health infrastructure in the rural areas, including supporting and strengthening diagnostic centres and isolation facilities,” said Rahul Bajaj.

The Bajaj Group also saluted all the health care, sanitation, and emergency support workers and local police who are working tirelessly to contain the situation. The Bajaj Group made it clear that it will continue to be committed to helping them in every possible manner to fight this pandemic and exuded confidence that communities remain healthy and have all the support to tide through these unprecedented times.
