Tata Trusts is airlifting critical supplies for country-wide deployment to support India’s Covid-19 interventions. The operation is being done with the support of Tata International Limited.

The items being imported comprise Personal Protection Equipment kits (including coveralls, masks, gloves and goggles) N95/KN95 masks and surgical masks of different grades.

The Trusts’ intervention follows the Chairman, Ratan N. Tata’s statement that “urgent emergency resources need to be deployed to cope with the needs of fighting the COVID 19 crisis, which is one of the toughest challenges the human race will face.”

The consignment, of about one crore individual units, will arrive in multiple batches and will be deployed where these are most needed across the country through the coming weeks. The total value committed so far to the sourcing of such materials is about Rs 150 crores.
