Smartphone brand Vivo has announced aid worth Rs 10 crores to extend support for COVID relief efforts. This also includes a donation of Rs 2 crores that the handset maker had announced recently.

As part of the ‘VivoCares’ initiative, the company has undertaken several initiatives to help out those in need during this devastating second wave of COVID-19, which has put extreme pressure on domestic healthcare.

Vivo will donate oxygen concentrators worth Rs 6 crores that will be distributed to various government hospitals to support the COVID relief measures.

“We are facing one of the worst crises in the history of humanity, and it is important for all of us to support each other in these unprecedented times. Vivo is committed to its people, and these initiatives are just a small step to extend our support to the communities. We all are in this together and will get through by helping each other,” said Nipun Marya, Director, Brand Strategy, Vivo India.

The company has partnered with ISKCON to distribute 1,00,000 free cooked meals at the doorsteps of Covid-stricken patients and families in Gurgaon. Furthermore, in association with The Akshaya Patra Foundation, the world’s largest (not-for-profit run) Mid-Day Meal Programme provider, Vivo will give out a ‘Happiness Kit’ for all 500+ students of a government school for six months in Delhi. The 6-month long happiness project will support nutrition through food items, education through books and stationery, and hygiene through daily essentials. It has also pledged to donate 2 ambulances fitted with cardio-ventilator machine.

Vivo said it has remained steadfast in its commitment to support the government’s efforts to fight the pandemic. During the last year, Vivo had donated over 9 lakh masks, 15,000 PPE suits, and 50,000 litres of sanitizer to the state and central government agencies.
