Hyundai Motors India rolls out Covid-19 relief measures. The philanthropic arm of Hyundai Motor India, named Hyundai Motor India Foundation (HMIF), is taking all the responsibilities. These initiatives will offer assistance to the states suffering the most, namely, Maharashtra, Haryana, Telangana and more.

The second wave of Covid-19 has hit India adversely, disrupting the entire medicare facilities of the country. Thus, Hyundai mentions that it will redirect its resources and channel its efforts to provide support.
Measures Taken By HMIF To Fight The Pandemic
Given the rising cases of Covid-19 in the second wave, HMIF rolled out an INR 20 Crore package. This will help in handling the crisis and break the chain of spread. The company mentions that it will set up Oxygen Generating plants in hospitals to help meet the oxygen demand. HMIF will also look into adding medicare facilities and develop the infrastructure in the hospitals. Hyundai Motors is also taking the utmost care of its employees. It had organised a vaccination drive for its entire staff aged 45 and above.

HMIL announced that it exported 1,04,342 cars between April 2020 to March 2021. Fulfilling the company’s ‘Make In India For The World’ initiative, Hyundai currently exports to over 88 countries.
