Infosys Foundation commits Rs. 200 crore for COVID relief

May 10, 2021

New Delhi: Infosys Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Infosys, will commit an additional Rs. 100 crore to support efforts to fight COVID-19 in India. This comes on top of the Rs. 100 crore that it allocated last year, taking its total commitment to Rs. 200 crore.

“Last year, we helped in establishing full-fledged COVID Hospital in Bengaluru which is now running at full capacity. We will be allocating funds this time to various other cities where Infosys has a presence — Hyderabad, Pune, Nagpur, Mangalore, Trivandrum and Delhi. We are supporting hospitals by giving ventilators, oxygen concentrators, sanitisers, PPE kits, N95 masks,” Sudha Murty, Chairperson, Infosys Foundation, told reporters. 

“We are also helping construction workers with rice and food kits, apart from providing maintenance money to auto drivers. We are also spending money on vaccination awareness programmes because there are many people who are not taking vaccines. We are also helping animal care centres,” she added.

Half of the Rs. 100-crore commitment last March was earmarked for the PM CARES fund. This time round, the entire commitment will be used by the Foundation to fund various initiatives at the grassroots level. “There is a lot of work that we are doing at the grassroot level and we need funds for all this. We have distributed thousands of ration kits to vulnerable sections,” she said.
