Besides these quarantine and isolation facilities, MMT has recently launched CoviRide, an open, peer-to-peer community platform designed to help individuals, organizations and the larger community to seek and provide transport-related assistance during this difficult time. The community platform is available on mobile web and desktop. It aims at solving one of the biggest challenges of finding intercity or intracity transport options including ambulance services for COVID-19 infected patients. It also helps the user locate a ride to a vaccination center, drive through oxygen centers, to and from the hospital and for medical equipment transfer such as oxygen cylinder, concentrator, medicines, among others.
Furthermore, MakeMyTrip foundation is also procuring 300 Oxygen Concentrators. the initial set of Oxygen Concentrators have already been shared with Gurgaon Administration, Sir Ganga Ram City Hospital, Delhi and NGOs like Hemkunt Foundation and National Association for the Blind (NAB). The foundation is also collaborating with Resident Welfare Associations across Delhi-NCR to assist in setting up Covid-Care facilities at large residential areas by providing oxygen concentrators.
MakeMyTrip Foundation is a public charitable trust that has been set up to actively and passionately contribute towards issues of broader social impact, especially focusing on promoting responsible travel. The foundation is investing in resources and creating awareness to support the restoration of Indian heritage, improve ecological balance, and offset carbon footprint.
