New Delhi: In order to assist in the relief operations of cyclone Tauktae, Bajaj Foundation, a non-profit organization, has deployed supplies to assist the state of Goa as it battles the impact of the cyclone and the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We have deployed trucks full of supplies including oxygen concentrators, medicines, ration and other pet care provisions to assist the massively impacted state. People in Goa have suffered a huge loss and we aim to provide relief by sending essential supplies which are a need of the hour. We will try and help all those who have faced losses and contribute towards restoring the situation there. We will also continue our efforts of helping people who are in need of oxygen across the country through our emergency oxygen program and help humanity in the best way possible”, said Mr. Pankaj Bajaj, Founder, Bajaj Foundation.
As the coronavirus cases continue to rise unabated in various parts of the country, Bajaj Foundation started an emergency oxygen program by providing free doorstep delivery of oxygen concentrators across Delhi-NCR and has already impacted lives across the national capital region. In an effort to reach out to more people, the foundation is scaling up the program across cities and is looking at reducing the response time for a hassle free experience across the country.
As part of the program, in case of an emergency where the Spo2 is below 90, the service will offer O2 at your doorstep free of charge for 72 hours on a refundable security deposit. A professional service will also be provided to not only deliver and set up the concentrators, but also collect back the machines from the users once they have recovered and no longer need them. The program came into effect last week with the ease of ordering O2 through a helpline number, an email or Bajaj Foundation’s website.

In addition to this, Bajaj Foundation has provided hundred thousand meals through a COVID-19 Food Drive in partnership with Khoya. Free meals are being prepared at the Khoya Mithai Kitchen and are being delivered to the affected families on a daily basis. The Foundation has also been providing other medical supplies including hand sanitisers and face masks to the affected families.
