New Delhi/IBNS: Jindal Stainless, one of the largest stainless steel conglomerates in India, has contributed rupees five crore to the PM Cares Fund to help combat the COVID-19 pandemic in India.

Prior to this, the company had donated Rs 15 lakh to the Haryana Chief Minister’s Relief Fund.

Jindal Stainless has also undertaken a large scale multi-pronged strategy in areas of medical assistance, cleanliness and sanitization, and ration distribution.

At Hisar, Haryana, Jindal Institute of Medical Sciences (JIMS), a 580-bedded multi super-specialty hospital, has set apart 125 beds for an isolation ward and two negative pressure isolation rooms for COVID-19 patients.

With an armamentarium of 150 ICU beds, 60 ventilators, 250 monitors, 300 syringe pumps, the hospital is ready to counter any medical exigency arising from the virus.

The hospital has also earmarked a dedicated flu screening unit with isolation rooms for timely detection of the disease.

About three weeks ago, free telephonic consultation for OPD patients was also started to check the spread of the pandemic and to manage social distancing within the hospital premises.

The company's Hisar facility is producing and supplying industrial and medical oxygen to Jindal Institute of Medical Sciences and Agroha Medical College for medical emergencies.

Apart from this, the company is supporting over 500 families through food packet and food grain distribution in areas around the plants at Hisar and Jajpur (Odisha).

The company is ensuring availability of sanitisers, masks, and surgical gloves wherever needed.

The company is supporting local municipal corporations with city sanitisation in both Hisar and Jajpur.

In both Haryana and Odisha, the company is in the process of institutionalising a sales channel to support local farmers by connecting them to potential buyers in neighbouring cities.

In Delhi NCR, the company distributed ration and food supplies to migrants and daily wage workers post the imposition of lockdown, through a PPP model with the Delhi government.

Said Abhyuday Jindal, Managing Director, Jindal Stainless, “The COVID-19 pandemic is by far the worst global crisis that has hit humanity at large. In these pressing times, we extend gratitude to the Indian government and the medical fraternity who are managing the crisis. From food requirements to medical and sanitation supplies, we will ensure all our support to the country in this hour of need. ”

All employees of the company have contributed two-days’ gross salary to support these initiatives.
