CONTRIBUTIONS AT A GLANCE
ValueMomentum's COVID-19 Relief Responses
A crisis of this magnitude requires government officials and employees to step up and perform their responsibilities. We decided to take swift actions to help the most vulnerable in our community and came forward to extend our help immediately. Among these initiatives, we sponsored supply of critical equipment to a bunch of Hospitals in wave I and to Telangana Institute Medical Sciences in WAVE II.
Isolation centers play a critical role in fighting the pandemic. We joined hands with a non-profit organization to set up a 500-bed free COVID isolation center in the outskirts of Hyderabad. The center was well equipped with doctors, nurses, food, medicines, equipment, and ambulance along with a call center providing online counseling to callers, fee medical kits and oxygen concentrators on demand.
In this pandemic, the frontline workers risked their own lives to carry out their duties. As a community, we are grateful for their service, and stood in solidarity with all front-line workers who have been positive forces during this crisis. We supported the frontline personnel of the Hyderabad Police Department who have stepped up to serve the population at large during the pandemic. We delivered Oxygen Concentrators to them. We also funded the procurement and distribution of oxygen concentrators by a non-profit to needy hospitals spread across India and pledged 10% of the funding needed to set up three oxygen plants in Karnataka.
Establishment of Intensive Critical Care Units in Rural Areas
One can only imagine the extent of human suffering in remote places and rural areas if the situation was this bad in cities. The patients had no means to access critical care. There was a need to boost the infrastructure of tertiary healthcare facilities at district levels to better meet the needs of the COVID-19 crisis.
We recognized the urgency and quickly joined hands with Nirmaan, a non-profit organization, to set up community-based local facilities to improve the situation. We funded two 10-bed ICU facilities in two hospitals in Andhra Pradesh to upgrade the critical medical support systems. We believe that these facilities would not only help boost medical infrastructure for COVID-affected patients, but also create a long-term impact for the local citizens by creating health infrastructure that would benefit them for years to come. A facility like this is a beacon of hope because when a medical crisis hits a rural household, they will not have to make life and death choices because their community cannot support their medical needs.
Making Critical Eye Care Accessible to the Rural Population
At ValueMomentum, we wanted to tackle the problem with a long-term mindset and decided to focus on strengthening the healthcare delivery channels in these underserved areas. We collaborated with L V Prasad Eye Hospital to set up a Vision Center in one of the villages in the district of Moinabad, Telangana. The goal of the initiative was to make critical eye care accessible to the rural population. This is a futuristic vision center, which is equipped with modern technologies and provides services such as vision assessment, refraction, anterior segment examinations, remote teleophthalmology, and others. All services at the vision center are free of charge.
Clothes Donation Drive to support the victims of Cyclone Fani in Odisha, India
Our associates came forward to do their part to help the victims. A Clothes Donation Drive was quickly organized and our employees came out in large numbers to donate to the Drive.
We partnered with Goonj—a well-known Non-Government Organization that ran relief campaigns in areas affect by the cyclone—who helped us distribute clothes among the victims. In total, Goonj distributed over 11 boxes of clothes from the ValueMomentum team. We feel proud of our associates for showing their compassion and standing by our communities in times of distress.
Support disaster relief efforts of Hurricanes Maria and Irma
ValueMomentum has always stood by communities during the time of natural calamities, and we do what we can to support relief efforts. In this instance, ValueMomentum came forward and donated $50,000 to the American Red Cross to support efforts that help residents of Puerto Rico recover from the catastrophic effects of Hurricane Irma and Maria.
Fund Raising Campaign to Empower Underprivileged Children
In 2005, a group of our associates raised funds to contribute to the work of these NGOs. The associates identified NGOs and self-help groups that had been working towards adopting schools in 20 villages in the state of Telangana, India. The NGOs had been supporting the schools with study materials and mid-day meals, and distributed spectacles to students that needed them.
Many of our employees joined the fund raising campaign by donating from their monthly salary towards the fund. Aside from financial contributions, our employees also actively visited the beneficiaries as part of this campaign.
Clothes Donation Drive – Cyclone Relief Response
Cyclone Fani made landfall on May 3, 2019 and left behind a trail of devastation creating distress for millions in the state.
Fund Raising Campaign to Support the Underprivileged
We believe there is nothing more important and rewarding than helping the underprivileged children gain access to education and healthcare.
