In times of crisis, it is often those we don’t see, the unsung heroes – the doctors, nurses, other healthcare workers, police officers, fire department personnel – who get us through.
Given Cognizant Foundation’s strong focus in healthcare, our COVID-19 relief efforts focused on protecting such frontline workers and strengthening the healthcare system across Gujarat, Karnataka, Kerala, Maharashtra, NCR, Odisha, Tamil Nadu, Telangana and West Bengal. This included the donation of over 6,13,000 units of protective gear for healthcare and frontline workers and over 1,100 critical medical equipment to strengthen health systems, along with other continued efforts.
