In a fresh tranche of support to the nation’s fight against Covid, Federal Bank donates ₹ 3.55 Crore for setting up a special Covid Facility in Aluva Government District Hospital. This ICU within the hospital campus will have 100 beds with ventilators and several other advanced medical support equipment for treating Covid patients. The Bank is working jointly with National Health Mission to make the facility operational at the earliest. This CSR activity of the Bank will help Ernakulam district in ensuring quality treatment to rising number of Covid patients in the district.
This project forms part of various infrastructure, logistic and awareness programs that Federal Bank Hormis Memorial Foundation, CSR arm of Federal Bank, has recently undertaken to combat the second wave of Covid in Kerala and at national level. The other day, the Bank sponsored 10,000 units of vaccine carriers to the Government of Kerala, which have started arriving the state. The Bank has also lent support to Malappuram district to organize three mobile vaccination units which ply in different parts of the district inoculating senior citizens and people with special needs. In addition to these, the Bank is funding many other Covid relief and vaccination initiatives all over India, which include a mega CSR project in partnership with Apollo Hospitals and a national media group for supporting vaccination drives in five districts which are worst hit by the pandemic.
