Pune: Through the last 130 years, Bajaj Group has stood strong with communities, government and local authorities to make a positive difference to society.

Bajaj Group pledged Rs 100 crore to the fight against Covid-19. Working with the Government and Bajaj network of over 200 plus NGO partners, Bajaj ensured these resources reach those who need it the most.

In Pune, Bajaj Group will support upgradation of key healthcare infrastructure required to tackle Covid-19.

The aid will support the Government and identified private sector hospitals to upgrade ICUs, procure additional equipment and consumables including ventilators and personal protection equipment, enhance testing, and set up isolation units.

These interventions will support communities in Pune, Pimpri-Chinchwad and rural areas of Pune.

Bajaj Group are also working with organisations in multiple geographies to extend immediate support to the most affected - daily wage workers, the homeless and street children. Bajaj will support initiatives on food supply, shelter and access to sanitation and healthcare.

In the last few weeks, there has been a reverse migration to the villages. Bajaj Group are thus committing a significant portion of our support towards an economic aid programme in rural areas which includes a direct survival grant, followed by a livelihood intervention using a revolving fund model.

Bajaj Group will also work with authorities and partners towards creating awareness on Covid-19 and strengthening health infrastructure in the rural areas, including supporting and strengthening diagnostic centres and isolation facilities.
