NEW DELHI: Qualcomm has pledged $4 million to assist India in better preparing to cope with the deadly second Covid wave that has engulfed the world.
The Qualcomm Charitable Foundation and Qualcomm India funds will be used to improve India’s vital hospital facilities, medical devices, and materials, according to the chipmaker.
The funds will help India in its fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.
Qualcomm stated in an official release that the organisation has been aggressively preparing how it can best offer relief to communities in India by successful philanthropic intervention. We recognised that one of the major sources of stress on the system is a lack of medical supplies and life-saving devices.
In a tweet, the organisation said.
Qualcomm stated that it would continue to support its colleagues, clients, local governments, and communities through this tough period. Several other technology firms, in addition to Qualcomm, have increased their efforts toward Covid-19. Facebook was created.
It introduced its vaccine-finding tools in India, while Twitter launched a tool to keep its users up to date on the vaccine.
Meanwhile, Indian firms have increased their efforts against Covid-19. Reliance, Tata Steel, BHEL, and SAIL, among others, provide oxygen to hospitals throughout the world.
