TCS Donation to Make Children's Hospital in Stockholm a Happier Place
STOCKHOLM, April 14, 2020: Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS), a leading global IT services, consulting, and business solutions organization, announced that it has donated €15,000 to Astrid Lindgren's Children's Hospital at the Karolinska University Hospital in Stockholm. The charitable donation was linked to spectator participation at the TCS Lidingöloppet cross country race, where TCS has been the title sponsor for four years.
With the latest donation, TCS has contributed a total of €55,000 in the last four years. Previous donations have helped the hospital purchase technical equipment to facilitate children's stay. Among other things, an adapted sensory room and interactive projector wall have been installed in the hospital's play therapy department.
With this year's donation, the hospital will use modern and interactive technology to bring one of the hospital corridors to life for its young patients, as well offer new sound pillows that allow children to listen to music or fairy tales.
Avinash Limaye, Country Head, TCS Sweden, said: “We are extremely proud of the collaboration with Astrid Lindgren’s Children's Hospital and it is with great pleasure that we donated an additional €15,000 to the hospital this year. We hope that our contribution can help create joy for the children who need care as well as for their families."
Welcoming TCS’ support, Svante Norgren, Theme Manager, Children’s and Women's Health, Astrid Lindgren's Children's Hospital said: "At Astrid Lindgren's Children's Hospital, we treat severely ill children daily. Thanks to the joyful surroundings and the many different activities available, the children are much happier. The donations that TCS has given to the hospital have helped us to provide hundreds of sick children with important support for a normal life."
