At the very onset of #COVID-19 wave II, S&P GLOBAL FOUNDATION
came forward to support the local communities in critical need of resources. The Foundation committed USD $1.8M in grants to directly support India relief efforts, including to Nirmaan Organization. These funds were provided to support the efforts to strengthen #ruralhealthcare centers and #emergencyresponse, as well as distribute critically needed oxygen supplies across India.
We are grateful to S&P Global Foundation for this timely support through which we were able to support #frontlineworkers and COVID-affected families across #Telangana and #AndhraPradesh (AP).
Today, I’m sharing about the support to the Area Hospital, Tadepalligudem, West Godavari district in AP. Through this project, we established 12 ICU beds along with Multi-para Monitors, Suction Apparatus, Ventilators, Crash Carts, Oxygen Cylinders etc. The ward will serve the people of West Godavari district not just during the pandemic, but beyond.
Heartfelt thanks to the Hospital Superintendent and his medical staff who provided support at every step of the way.
The ICU ward is operational and will continue to serve the economically disadvantaged, rural populations of West Godavari district beyond the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are thankful to our partners – eGovernment Foundation, and Karuna Trust.
