Ola has joined hands with the GiveIndia to supply free oxygen concentrators in the country. Ola will start deliveries of free oxygen concentrators via its ride-hailing mobile application. The service will start with an initial set of 500 oxygen concentrators.
The second wave of Covid-19 virus spread in the country is increasing at a rapid pace. As a result, automakers have decided to curb the spread by announcing non-prodcution days in the country.
There is a serious shortage of oxygen in the country. Most automakers have joined hands with various organizations to increase the production of oxygen and other medical equipment needed to treat the affected patients in the country.
The partnership between Ola and GiveIndia is aimed at increasing the supply of oxygen concentrators in the country. The partnership has also announced that it will be scaling up to 10,000 concentrators in the coming weeks.
Oxygen concentrators can be ordered via Ola's ride-hailing mobile application. Consumers can log into the Ola app and request an oxygen concentrator by providing a few basic details. The company will then validate the request. Ola will then pick up the concentrator via one of its cabs with a specially trained driver and bring it to the consumer's doorstep.
After the patient has recovered and no longer requires the oxygen concentrator, Ola will pick the device back up and return it to GiveIndia. This way, GiveIndia will be ready to ship the concentrator for the next patient.
The entire process will be seamless, hassle-free and carried out in the most efficient manner. The oxygen concentrator, as well as the doorstep delivery and pickup, will be completely free for patients.
Bhavish Aggarwal, Chairman and Group CEO, Ola, said, "We must come together and help our communities during these unprecedented times. With the O2ForIndia initiative in partnership with GiveIndia, we will provide free and easy access to oxygen concentrators to those in need. We hope this initiative brings much-needed support during these very difficult times and helps in mitigating the pain and the anxiety among those impacted."
Atul Satija, CEO and Founder 2.0 at GiveIndia, said "We are happy to partner with Ola during these difficult times. Through this initiative, we will provide oxygen concentrators to those recovering or isolating at home, right at their doorstep. We hope the easier access to oxygen will ease the distress of many patients."
