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.

The Foundation has touched over 21 lakh lives through 359 COVID Relief Program across 14 states in the country. Our COVID Relief Work is continuing in the following focus areas (as on 6 May 2021): 

  • 671,162 benefitted from Dry Ration Kits which were distributed to support families suffering from the financial crisis. 
  • 341,510 Cooked Meals were served to migrant workers, daily-wage earners and others. 
  • 305,000 people were benefitted from sanitized Community Toilets in slums of Mumbai and Pune through Flush the Virus, a project in association with UNICEF India and Triratna Prerana Mandal (TPM).
  • 51,685 PPE Kits were distributed to the frontline workers to enhance the capacity to respond to the crisis. 
  • 25 Hospitals were supported with Medical Equipment including ventilators and Supplies to augment the healthcare efforts of the government. 
  • 770,743 Masks were distributed to control the spread of infection. 
  • 1,162 Laptops & Tablets were distributed to help students continue learning and make online classes available to all students.
  • 17,582  beneficiaries were provided with gloves, mouth sanitizers etc.

The Foundation acknowledges that the response to this pandemic will not be effective unless it is also equitable and thus, we are working at an exceptional scale and speed to mitigate the risk and impact of this unprecedented crisis. 

Geographies covered: Delhi NCR, Maharashtra, Odisha, West Bengal, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Assam and Jammu and Kashmir.
