In addition to the above, they will also provide ventilators, testing kits and personal protective equipment like face shields, protective suits, etc to healthcare workers who’re at risk as they are directly dealing with COVID-19 patients. With the support of various NGOs, they are also looking to provide food and hygiene kits to thousands of people in need.
In a statement, Head of the foundation, Sudha Murthy mentioned:
“These are unprecedented times that require every section of the society to rise up to the challenge. Infosys Foundation has always supported the needs of the country in difficult situations and we will continue to work with governments, non-profits, and healthcare institutions in their fight against this global pandemic.”
She further added,
“All our efforts will be targeted towards ensuring that the relief material reaches the people who need it the most, whether it is a patient who cannot afford treatment, our healthcare personnel, or daily-wage workers whose livelihood has been severely impacted.”
At IFORHER, we are in awe of Sudha Murthy as she has always stood tall for mankind in any extreme situation – be it floods or coronavirus pandemic!
