COVID Relief Program

Helping India in its fight against COVID-19

"Our Resolve to Rise, together"

Supporting the Society in Emergency

Tech Mahindra Foundation sensed that the COVID-19 pandemic made the social disparities more evident as people from the vulnerable communities suffer from hunger and have little access to safety gear. Within two weeks of the lockdown in March 2020, we had gauged the enormity of what we could be staring at, and had articulated our goal for COVID Relief with the statement: “To direct the support towards the most vulnerable population segments in the quickest possible time.” This statement has guided us towards taking quick decisions and staying focused during these wickedly unpredictable times. 

To combat the consequences of the pandemic, we are relentlessly working to direct the support towards the most vulnerable population including Healthcare workers, Security Personnel, Sanitation Workers, Migrant Workers, Farmers, Transgenders Community, Elderly People, Daily Wagers, Persons with Disabilities and more.

Just when we thought that the end of the COVID pandemic was on the horizon, the second wave came upon us stronger than ever. In the Second Wave of the Pandemic, focus has shifted to supporting hospitals with critical medical infrastructure, including oxygen cylinders, concentrators, beds, cardiac monitors and other supplies. We ramped up our training programs to upskill healthcare professionals and frontline workers.
