Partners with multiple organizations to support communities most impacted by COVID-19
MUMBAI: The second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the healthcare system in India severely. Many Indians are navigating a strained healthcare system, along with extended lockdowns leading to business closures and job losses impacting their livelihoods. The second wave has abated in recent weeks with collaborative efforts by the frontline healthcare community, government, NGOs, and corporates; all playing their part in ensuring a quick recovery.
To support vulnerable communities most impacted by COVID-19, Experian, the world’s leading global information services company, rallied together in a global employee fundraising drive. The fundraising drive resulted in INR 5.5 crores being raised for communities impacted by COVID-19 and various non-government organizations (NGOs) that are helping vulnerable communities navigate the pandemic. Experian also matched the employee fundraiser with a corporate donation.
Neeraj Dhawan, Managing Director, Experian India, said: “At Experian, we have a mission to create a better tomorrow. Throughout the pandemic, Experian adopted a ‘people first’ approach – by supporting communities, empowering consumers, protecting employees, and enabling individuals and businesses to get easier access to credit. We partnered with NGOs to reach affected communities across the country. To alleviate their anxiety in managing their finances during these times, we are offering consumers free and unlimited Experian credit report downloads to check their Experian credit scores and better manage their financial health. We are also providing various forms of support for our employees, including a dedicated Employee Relief Fund for medical and other emergencies, and recently conducted vaccination drives for them and their families.”
Experian’s two-pronged approach to supporting India’s recovery includes:
Sudhir Sahni, Director (Partnerships), PRADAN, said, “COVID-19 has been a massive challenge, especially the second wave, for the poor and marginalized communities that we work with to enhance their livelihoods and alleviate poverty. We are extremely grateful for the support received from Experian, which has been over and above our regular project funds, despite PRADAN being a recent partner for Experian for community development work.”
