Tech Mahindra, a provider of digital transformation, consulting and business re-engineering services and solutions, is partnering with many of its global customers to collectively drive the Covid-19 support movement in India. This collaboration aims to extend support to Tech Mahindra Foundation, a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR arm) of Tech Mahindra, to service communities, employees and families across India through various revolutionary work.
With the increasing severity of Covid-19 in the second wave, Tech Mahindra Foundation alongside Tech Mahindra have rolled out several on-ground initiatives within and outside the organisation. These include enabling supply of critical medical equipment, training frontline workers, facilitating vaccination drives for employees and their dependents across the world, distribution of ration kits and other supplies to those in need, converting cafeterias to Covid care facilities, partnering with NGOs to support vulnerable communities and more. Anticipating the possibility of the third wave, these partnerships are helping further these initiatives that will help in combating the challenges in future as well.
Rakesh Soni, Chief Executive Officer, Tech Mahindra Foundation said, “In these difficult times, we must take care and stand by each other to sail through the crisis and emerge stronger. While the Foundation continues with its Covid relief and rehabilitation initiatives, we are also collaborating with some of Tech Mahindra’s global customers to facilitate a broader eco-system with diverse expertise to solve some of the recurring Covid challenges. As part of Tech Mahindra’s initiative #ResolveToRISE, this collaboration reiterates our commitment towards supporting the country’s response to the pandemic and help minimise its impact.”
Several of Tech Mahindra’s customers have since extended their support to this cause to mitigate the impact of Covid-19 and make a difference on ground. These partnerships have been vital in drawing global support and trust to collectively fight on ground. Alongside Tech Mahindra’s extensive ground work, the Tech Mahindra Foundation has provided relief support to over 23 lakh people across 16 states and counting.
Mallik Rao, Chief Technology and Information Officer, Telefónica Deutschland, says, “The current Corona situation and care in our partner country India is dramatic. Therefore, an initiative by various employees of Telefónica Deutschland launched a fundraising campaign together with the Tech Mahindra Foundation in which everyone can participate to support people in India. In a short time, we have managed to offer different ways of support, e.g. by donating money, buying and shipping needed medical equipment to hospitals and Covid Care Centers all over India or by sponsoring medical training for the upskilling of nurses and paramedics.”
