July 2021 – As of August 12, India has seen over 32 million COVID-19 cases and more than 429,000 deaths. In order to battle a potential third wave of the pandemic, the “ACT Now for Vaccination” campaign was organized by the charity organization United Way of Bengaluru to ramp up vaccination efforts for frontliners and underprivileged communities across India.
Ducen has partnered with this charity organization to scale up vaccination efforts targeting frontline workers of the Forest Department, Government of Karnataka. This is in line with our global efforts to address the COVID-19 crisis as well as extend support for Tiger Conversation in India, where Ducen operates a large delivery center.
“Supporting NGOs and organizations that help to protect and serve wildlife and endangered species is important to us.” Vish Ramesh, President and CEO of Ducen, said. “I have always been a big supporter of such organizations, especially when they’re also rolling out initiatives that contribute to solving the COVID-19 crisis.”
5,000 frontline workers from the Forest Department benefitted from the drive.
About 5,000 Forest Department staff and their family members have benefitted from the vaccination drive that ran from June 9 until July 15. Only those aged 18 years and above were included. It’s also worth noting that the locations covered by the drive are crucial parts of the Western Ghats biosphere, an ecological hotspot: The Nagarahole Tiger Reserve in Karnataka, Bandipur, BRT Tiger Reserve, Sakleshpur, Hassan, Ballari, and Kudremukh.
While this is the first time Ducen has partnered with United Way of Bengaluru, our organization is committed to contributing to various vaccination initiatives amid rising COVID-19 cases in India. Ducen has also successfully organized a recent vaccination drive for our employees and their beneficiaries in Chennai. “Everyone should get vaccinated,” Vish urges. “Let’s set aside all the skepticism and move on with our life and away from this pandemic.”
