The group's latest contribution to India addresses nationwide healthcare needs amid an ongoing COVID-19 crisis in the country.
CapitaLand and its philanthropic arm CapitaLand Hope Foundation (CHF) have pledged almost S$9 million to date since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, in support of communities in its operating markets of Singapore, China and India.
This includes about S$3.2 million donated to relief efforts in India. In its latest round of aid committed this month for India, the group’s donation will be used to procure more than 1,200 emergency medical supplies such as intensive care unit (ICU) beds, oxygen concentrators, pulse oximeters, ventilators, personal protection equipment (PPE) and surgical face masks.
It will also be used to set up a COVID-19 Care Centre at CapitaLand’s International Tech Park Bangalore, which will provide medical support for the group’s employees, tenants, and the neighbouring Bangalore Whitefield community who are asymptomatic or have mild symptoms.
