Since the beginning of the pandemic, examples of individuals, businesses and organizations going out of their way to help where needed have been numerous, bringing light to what has been a dark time for many.
Whether it was donating hand sanitizer, providing food or protective equipment to frontline workers or answering the call for “All hands on deck!” in order to get the jobs done, people were making it happen.
As the effect of the virus ebbs and flows across the globe, those efforts are still happening and still bringing light. India is dominating headlines right now, facing record-breaking COVID-19 infection levels and a rising death count. In response, the global community is stepping up, including Amway.
Amway donated $500,000 to The Global Task Force on Pandemic Response, a newly formed U.S.-based public-private partnership organized by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. The David & Carol Van Andel Family Foundation also contributed $250,000 to the effort.
The task force, which provides a unified platform for businesses to deliver sorely needed resources, is shipping 1,000 much-needed ventilators and 25,000 oxygen concentrators to India as well as providing guidance and expertise where it can to help keep people safe.
“India is on the hearts and minds of Amway’s global family,” said Amway CEO Milind Pant, who also serves as vice chair on the Chamber’s U.S.-India Business Council Board of Directors.
“To our colleagues and friends across India, know that we are committed to supporting you during these tough times. Thank you for your courage and determination throughout the pandemic. We will get through this together and emerge even stronger.”
While this effort stems from Amway’s corporate headquarters, Amway affiliates across the globe have been supporting local relief efforts from the beginning, including Amway India.
Amway India began manufacturing and donating hand sanitizer, provided monetary contributions from the company and employees, helped to open a new rural health center and donated deep freezers and other equipment to help with vaccine storage, among many other efforts.
