ICICI Foundation to donate oxygen concentrators

ICICI Foundation, the CSR arm of ICICI Group, said it is donating 1800 oxygen concentrators to sub-divisional hospitals in the tough terrain of Himalayan belt and remote tribal areas of the country in 2021-22. The donation is aimed at providing citizens in these regions with immediate oxygen support in the event of a medical emergency. These concentrators are being provided free-of-cost to over 700 sub-divisional hospitals across nearly 175 districts in 17 states. The first batch of over 300 concentrators has already been dispatched. The Foundation has procured these high-quality oxygen concentrators from BPL Medical Technologies and Phillips India. The Foundation is also providing a power back up system so that the concentrators can filter and produce medical-grade oxygen uninterrupted even in case of a power breakdown. The Foundation has also signed a MoU with BPL Medical Technologies to co-create a specialized skill training module on installation and servicing of oxygen concentrators. This module will be part of the curriculum being offered by ICICI Academy for Skills, a part of ICICI Foundation.
