Hyundai India announces Rs 20 cr relief package to fight COVID-19


Hyundai India became the latest automaker to join the fight against the deadly COVID-19. In a wake of a sudden surge in COVID-19 cases in the country, Hyundai India has announced a relief package of Rs 20 crore which will be donated through its philanthropic arm, Hyundai Motor India Foundation (HMIF).

As a part of the Hyundai Cares 3.0 relief initiative, the South Korean automaker has announced a series of measures to offer infrastructural assistance to affected states of Maharashtra, Delhi, Haryana, Telangana and Tamil Nadu.

Under the relief program, the automaker will deploy its resources by setting up oxygen generating plants in hospitals, which will help in providing aid to critical patients. It will also help hospitals to become self-sufficient in oxygen. Hyundai will also install Medicare facilities and provide support staff to various hospitals and cater to their operational cost for the next three months, and even further if required.

It will also augment its Mobile Medical Units and Telemedicine Clinics in rural areas to break the chain of COVID-19.
