India is facing a humanitarian crisis of epic proportions with a rapid rise in COVID-19 cases

The healthcare system was severely challenged, with over 400,000 new cases reported, at the peak of the pandemic, leaving hospital systems still overwhelmed across several cities and states. While supporting health infrastructure, supplies and capacity is the immediate and imminent need, long term support will be needed on multi-dimensional needs especially for marginalized groups.

TCS COVID-19 Response

Since the onset of the pandemic in 2020, TCS has been responding to the crisis globally, supporting needs of the local communities where we live and work.

  • In India, TCS has been a major contributor to the Tata Group’s pledge of $200M to COVID-19 relief & response efforts.
  • To support healthcare needs, we setup isolation centres, hospitals, expanded health workers’ capacity, provided PPE and other medical supplies, respiratory systems for treating increasing cases, testing kits to increase per capita testing, setting up modular treatment facilities for infected patients, training of health workers as well as the general public and helped at-risk population gain access to care. These are in addition to our research & innovation efforts on vaccine, drug molecule discovery, clinical trial systems, affordable devices and more.
  • Addressing underlying systemic inequities, we delivered food, grain & supplies to vulnerable population, empowered rural youth and women on a path to entrepreneurship and employment, helped students and educators traverse to virtual learning, and enable rural villagers to access government entitlements and more. We run bespoke CSR programs throughout the country, working with a network of national and local partners and welcome your partnership in supporting current & emergent local needs.
  • TCS is working closely with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, who are coordinating the business community’s response, in partnership with U.S. India Business Council, White House, U.S. Department of State and other concerned organizations.
