OLA, GiveIndia Tie-Up To Deliver Oxygen Concentrators At Doorstep
New Delhi: Ola Foundation and GiveIndia have joined hands to provide free oxygen concentrators through the Ola app to its consumers.
Ola and GiveIndia will roll out the service in Bengaluru this week with an initial set of 500 oxygen concentrators and then increase the reach and scale of the service to the entire country, providing up to 10,000 concentrators in the coming weeks.
To procure an O2 concentrator, customers have to log into the Ola App and request for one, furnishing a few details. The request on the app will be verified and Ola will deliver the concentrator via a cab, driven by a specially-trained driver to the customers’ doorstep.
Once the patient has gotten better and no longer requires the concentrator, Ola will also pick it up and return it to GiveIndia so that it can be used by another patient in need of it.
“We must come together and help our communities during these unprecedented times. With the O2ForIndia initiative in partnership with GiveIndia, we will provide free and easy access to oxygen concentrators to those in need. We hope this initiative brings much-needed support during these very difficult times and helps in mitigating the pain and the anxiety among those impacted.” said Bhavish Aggarwal, Chairman and Group CEO, Ola.
