As the second wave of COVID-19 proves to be highly volatile and begins to prove fatal beyond imagination, the irreparable loss of human life we are witnessing in and around our daily lives has created a void enormous that cannot be filled. With the aim of bringing aid to the underprivileged part of society, Home Credit India is committed to providing support to affected communities. Home Credit India, a local arm of the international consumer finance provider with operations in Europe and Asia, has partnered with the Don Bosco Network and the Earth Saviors Foundation to ignite the silver lining as the company provides medical and hygiene kits to around 10,000 people affected people.
Beneficiaries include slum dwellers, day laborers, the migrant population, the elderly and the poor, and people abandoned in homes for the poor. As prescribed by AIIMS, each medical and hygiene kit provided to a family consists of a pulse oximeter, digital thermometer, N95 face masks, essential hand sanitizer drugs like paracetamol, vitamin C, zinc, etc.
Commenting on this contribution, Mr. Ondrej Kubik, CEO of Home Credit India said: “We are saddened by the scale of the humanitarian crisis at this time. We are at this point where the COVID-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc on human lives and has been devastating. Our hearts are with those affected and we are committed to helping humanity recover from the loss caused by the pandemic.
During this difficult phase of C0VID-19, we are united to overcome this health crisis together. I am happy to be associated with the Don Bosco Network and the Earth Saviors Foundation, which have worked tirelessly for the well-being of the vulnerable section. The effort is to ensure that those affected are safe, healthy and able to restore their livelihoods at the earliest. “
Home Credit is making its efforts and mobilized to provide concrete help to real needs on the ground. In partnership with Don Bosco Network and to help those most in need, Home Credit provides medical and hygiene kits to people affected by COVID-19.
Earth Saviors Foundation, home to several people abandoned by society, is running a medical camp for its residents with support from Home Credit. The camp aims to address general health issues experienced by residents. They will receive medication and support for laboratory investigations when needed. The idea is to bring these people back to good mental and physical health and allow them to regain their livelihoods.
Commenting on the help received from the HCIN, Father Noel Maddhichetty, Director, Don Bosco Network South Asia said: “The second wave of COVID-19 has had a devastating impact on the lives of people across the country. Don Bosco Network has launched its “Save and Support Solidarity” COVID relief program to support vulnerable sections of society. Home Credit India’s COVID relief response has propelled our act of giving to ensure people maintain their dignity and alleviate the suffering of those affected in this time of pandemic. Don Bosco Network is confident to fulfill its mission with a partner like Home Credit, who is keen to advance our mission for people in need.. “
In association with Home Credit India, Mr. Ravi Kalra, Founder and Chairman of the Earth Saviors Foundation said: “We feel privileged to partner with Home Credit India to support those affected by COVID. Medical camps have proven to be a life saver for many disadvantaged people who cannot afford a COVID test and struggle to get a proper diagnosis. I would once again like to thank Home Credit India for all of their support for our foundation, to serve the community at this time when the world is reeling from the second wave of COVID.“
Recently, Home Credit India launched a series of activities for the welfare of its employees during the COVID-19 lockdown. Under the countryside #TogetherWeWin, a plethora of activities such as mindfulness sessions, online medical consultations, a COVID-19 awareness campaign and wellness sessions for employees’ children are organized.
