COVID crisis: Honda India Foundation earmarks Rs 6.5 cr to support relief efforts
Honda India Foundation, the corporate social responsibility arm of all Honda group companies in India, on Monday said it has earmarked Rs 6.5 crore to support the government's ongoing efforts against COVID-19.
''This second wave of COVID-19 pandemic has impacted all of us adversely. At this hour of need, it is imperative that more individuals and organizations come forward to help in cohesion and we do our best for the community we operate in and for the country, at large.
The foundation is working with various stakeholders to ensure that on-ground efforts can run seamlessly, he added.
''It is time to stand together for each other, with the belief that we will sail through this,'' Ogata noted.
These temporary COVID-19 care centers are expected to commence operation from next week onwards, the organisation said.
Similar isolation centers are also being explored in other locations.
The foundation is also working with state governments to set up oxygen production plants in the districts of Kolar (Karnataka), Gautam Budh Nagar (Uttar Pradesh), Alwar (Rajasthan) and Manesar (Haryana).
Honda India Foundation noted that it has already started an extensive distribution exercise to help the local administration's efforts in all the five states by providing protection kits (PPE, Mask, Sanitisers) and food packets for front line warriors and medical equipment such as pulse oximeter, thermometers, oxygen concentrators for government hospitals in rural areas.
