Project Description

On March 30, 2019, the company announced INR 100 crore support for COVID-19 relief efforts. Of the amount committed, INR 50 crore was donated to the PM CARES Fund to supplement the government’s pan-India relief efforts. The Foundation helped set up a 100-bed quarantine facility for patients in Bengaluru in collaboration with Narayana Health City (NHC). The facility, located near NHC, aimed at serving patients belonging to economically weaker sections, will provide, besides accommodation, regular monitoring by doctors and nurses, and essential medication, free of cost. Further, the Foundation also helped establish a 182-bed quarantine facility for the Bowring and Lady Curzon Medical College & Research Institute, Bengaluru. The BBMP Super Specialty hospital on the institute’s premises was converted into a COVID-19 hospital. The Foundation procured and installed all the equipment required, and also supplied all the infrastructure, including furniture and fittings. Two ambulances were also provided. The Foundation identified the immediate requirements at various hospitals engaged in the fight against COVID-19 and stepped in to help. Medical equipment and infrastructure such as ventilators, patient monitoring systems, viral transport media, N95 masks, other masks, non-contact infrared thermometers, medical gas pipelines and gas manifold systems and PPE kits have been provided pan India to hospitals. These include Command Hospital (R&R) in Bengaluru, 7 Air Force Hospital in Kanpur, 11 Air Force Hospital in Ghaziabad, Military hospital in Belgaum, Chinmaya Mission Hospital, Bowring and Lady Curzon Medical College & Research Institute, Sri Jayadeva Institute of Cardiovascular Sciences and Research in Bengaluru, and Government Civil Hospital in Pune. The Foundation also recognized the need to take care of the poor and underprivileged, daily wagers whose livelihoods were impacted. Provisions, supplies and hygiene kits were arranged to reach such sections, and healthcare workers, through many partner organizations.

The bank made significant contributions to the PM Cares Fund, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. 100 crore support contribution was provided from the Infosys Foundation in India, of which 50% was towards the Prime Minister’s Citizen Assistance and Relief in Emergency Situations Fund (PM CARES Fund).

The company has also contributed to flood relief efforts in Karnataka, Maharashtra, Assam and Odisha.
