Jaipur, 13 September, 2021.
DTDC and its strategic partner, Geopost SA (DPD Group), owned by France’s Le Groupe La Poste., are proud to associate with Narayana Hrudayalaya Charitable Trust and Narayana Hrudayalaya Ltd. for the successful set-up and inauguration of an oxygen generator plant in Jaipur.
The one-of-its-kind oxygen generator plant was inaugurated by DTDC Chairman and Managing Director Mr Subhasish Chakraborty, in the presence of top officials from DTDC and Narayana Health. The valuable joint -initiative, installed in the Narayana multi-speciality hospital in Jaipur, is geared to help the country fight the ongoing Covid pandemic.
DTDC Express Chairman and Managing Director Mr Subhasish Chakraborty said, “The cutting-edge oxygen generator plant, imported from the US, is a result of joint efforts of DTDC, our strategic partner, Geopost SA (DPD Group) and the able team at Narayana Health. As a part of our CSR program for Covid care support, we have made a significant contribution of Rs 1.56 crore to Narayana Hrudayalaya Charitable Trust. DTDC and Geopost SA (DPD Group) also ensured the seamless logistical movement of the oxygen generator plant”.
With the capacity for generating medical-grade oxygen at 500 litres a minute, generators like these play a crucial role in critical Covid remedies. The oxygen generator plant is expected to provide the much-needed treatment to help a large population, including those from less-privileged backgrounds. City-based oxygen generator plants are expected to provide an ample supply of medical-grade oxygen, crucial for Covid-care, and reduce the need for cross-country transport of the life-saving gas.
Speaking further on the occasion, Arunesh Punetha, Regional director, Narayana Health said, “We are confident that with DTDC Express as our partners, we will be able to touch & positively impact thousands of lives together. Both the organisations will continue to support the people of Jaipur & Rajasthan in tiding over these challenging times”.
The occasion also saw a free mass-vaccination drive for the underprivileged in Jaipur, continuing the efforts of all the partners. DTDC’s inclusive social work, led by its CSR-wing, the Shri Subhasish Chakraborty Foundation (SSCF), extends to supporting underprivileged children and their needs for food, shelter and education.
