The Chennai-headquartered global technology firm, Zoho Corp is helping hospitals and healthcare centres across Tamil Nadu with procurement and distribution of essential medical equipment for Covid-19 treatment. The company has also donated ₹5 crores to the state government’s public relief fund towards Covid relief.
According to reports, other initiatives underway to support the state’s fight against the second wave of pandemic include an isolation care facility at the Estancia campus for employees and their families, vaccination drives, and community kitchens catering to villages around Chennai and Tenkasi.
The tech firm is providing oxygen supplies and medical equipment, worth ₹13 crores, to various private and public hospitals across the state. A 30-bedded healthcare facility has been set up at the Estancia campus to provide basic assistance for relatively mild cases of Covid-19 among Zoho employees and their families. The healthcare centre is in compliance with BMW regulations and treatment protocols established by the state government and is supervised by Zoho’s in-house doctor.
Zoho reopened its office kitchens in Chennai and Tenkasi in the last week of April to prepare food to be distributed to local villages. Currently, the company serves 30,000 meals a day across the state. The IT firm is also supporting various NGOs that are distributing provision kits to the underserved in Tier II and III towns. 2000 kits have been distributed until now, with plans to add another 12,000 soon within Chennai.
The company has recently co-hosted a free vaccination drive in Madurai along with a few NGOs. The company plans to organize vaccination camps for employees and locals in other areas as well once an adequate supply of vaccines is available.
