Tata companies and Tata Trusts continue to support a massive humanitarian effort to alleviate disruption caused by the Covid-19 lockdown.

The relief effort included accelerated construction of hospital units, scaled up manufacturing and supply of personal protection equipment (PPE), communication campaigns and community hygiene.

Procurement and Transportation of PPE

Tata Trusts have procured about 250 tonnes of PPE for the safety of frontline healthcare workers. The material — coveralls, gloves, N95 and K95 masks — has landed in India and will be distributed among hospitals in over 20 states shortly. The Trusts sourced the material from FDA-approved suppliers in China. The Tata ecosystem stepped up to support the effort: Tata International provided import and customs expertise, Voltas provided a warehouse in Pune and Trent is overseeing warehouse management.

Hospital and ICU

Tata Projects built a 30-bed hospital wing, Ward 4, for KEM Hospital, Mumbai. The project was commissioned on April 2 and was handed over to KEM by April 20.. The project involved nine site managers and engineers, 20 vendors and suppliers and 40 workmen at peak. Despite challenges posed by the lockdown – two engineers could not turn up due to lockdown in their areas and some doctors had to be quarantined – Tata Projects handed over the fully-equipped hospital wing in record time with innovative, efficient and smart solutions.

Tata Consumer Products supplies essential food and beverages to frontline staff in several cities across India. This includes “Quick Chai”, a tea premix that contains tea, sugar, milk and flavor like ginger/ elaichi. It requires only hot water to be prepared and can be made under 10 secs by adding the sachet contents to a cup of hot water, which makes it easy to prepare and consume in difficult situations on ground. Over 40,000 sachets were distributed in the city of Mumbai at the time of publication.

These were distributed to police staff, municipal staff and sanitation workers, migrant labourers, and to NGOs serving children, the elderly and the vulnerable.
