In order to support battle efforts of the government, Toyota Kirloskar Motor has pledged transportation support for healthcare professionals, and has offered to donate 1,000 Haz-Mat suits to Government Health Volunteers thereby ensuring safety for the caregivers.

The company has deployed 10 buses to the Bangalore Medical College & Research Institute, and the Toyota Mobility Foundation has provided an additional four buses to the Health Department of the Ramanagara district to enable easy, hassle free, and safe mobility for healthcare workers.

These buses are at the disposal until 30 April for all medical personnel including doctors, nurses, security teams, and other public health workers in order to facilitate their mobility to hospitals, field work, and other coordination.

On thousand Haz-Mat suits were handed over to Dr. C R Jayanthi, the Dean, Director & Principal at the Bangalore Medical College and Research Institute. The company will donate an additional 2,000 suits to the Government.

Toyota's motto of providing utmost safety and security doesn't just end with its cars or stakeholders but transcends the boundaries of our offices and factories."

"Accordingly, in these turbulent times it is important for us to help each other and the Government. We have been closely monitoring the evolving situation and have also taken necessary countermeasures to safeguard the health and safety of our people. We will continue to explore more initiatives that can roll out at the earliest and support the Government to the required extent in its fight against the repercussions of the COVID-19 outbreak," he added.

Mr. Pras Ganesh, the Program Director for the Asia Region at Toyota Kirloskar Motor said, "The aim of TMF is to provide the best possible mobility solution for our valued healthcare workers, allowing them to have a safe, expedient and free commute at this uncertain time.
