Under the Hyundai Cares 3.0 Covid-19 relief initiative, Hyundai Motor India Foundation today announced the ‘Back-to-Life’ project to ensure quick delivery of oxygen equipment to government hospitals in New Delhi, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Haryana and Telangana from this week.
Among the oxygen equipment to be supplied by Hyundai Motor India Foundation under Back-to-Life project, the corporate social responsibility arm of Hyundai Motor India, are oxygen concentrators (700 units), high-flow oxygen plants (10 units), high-flow nasal oxygen machines (200 units) and BiPap ventilators (225 units).
“The ongoing crisis affects each and every one of us. As a community, as a nation and as humanity, we are all in it together. Since the start of the second wave, our thoughts and prayers have been with the affected families and our actions are echoing these emotions. To ensure we help societies and communities tide over this crisis, we are doing everything in our capacity to provide immediate relief,” Hyundai Motor India MD & CEO S S Kim said.
“Lifesaving medicare oxygen equipment are currently in absolute demand while their suppliers, as well as supply chains, are seemingly stretched thin. Despite this challenge, we relentlessly strived to ensure the procurement and immediate delivery of these precious lifesaving medical equipment to highly affected states and cities in India,” he added.
With the country battling the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic, Hyundai has also announced its support to government-identified hospitals for installing oxygen generation plants. The company will donate medical equipment to hospital staff as well.
