During this global health crisis, Glenmark Foundation has committed support to Kasturba Hospital in Maharashtra through provision of “Personal Protective Equipment” or PPE to medical staff. PPE includes medical masks and gowns, gloves, eye protection gear, sanitizers, etc. The state of Maharashtra has so far recorded the highest number of coronavirus cases in India, and most testing is being undertaken at the government’s Kasturba Hospital.
The Foundation is also working closely with its beneficiaries and the community to offer counsel and psychological support to lactating mothers and pregnant women. Since these women are more vulnerable to infections such as COVID-19, we are guiding this group towards a safe and healthy journey of motherhood.
