Selfless act towards Expectant Mothers
Mumbai, August 9, 2021: In order to take care of expecting mothers and their newborns amidst pandemic, Future Generali India Insurance Company Limited (FGII) has set-up a dedicated Covid-19 ward for mothers and new-born at Nowrosjee Wadia Maternity Hospital in Mumbai.
Expectant mothers were one of the most affected during the pandemic, as only limited hospitals were available for them and majority of the hospitals had converted into Covid treating hospitals. Taking into consideration, the importance of a dedicated ward only for pregnant women, FGII initiated a dedicated Covid-19 ward, wherein the beneficiaries would be provided with Covid-19 treatment and care. In addition, FGII has also provided medical equipment like X-ray machines, ECG machine, warmers, syringe pumps and infusion pumps. This CSR initiative is part of FGII’s ongoing pandemic relief efforts.
Ruchika Varma, Chief Marketing Officer, Future Generali India Insurance, said, “Owing to ongoing pandemic, the healthcare system has already been reeling under intense stress. At FGII, we were cognizant of the difficulties that second-wave of pandemic had unleashed, thus, post internal deliberations, we decided to extend our support to the health machinery for alleviating the challenges that expecting mothers have been facing. We are hopeful that our small contribution would support government’s efforts in the war against this pandemic.”
This initiative is set to benefit over 2500 mothers and newborns.
