ITes solutions provider NAV Back Office has launched a unique campaign to mount humanitarian assistance to common people affected in any way by COVID-19. The campaign, titled ‘Hum Layenge Khushiyan’, was rolled out across Jaipur on September 25, 2021 and will leverage the 1500-strong employee base of the company. The company has earmarked an amount of INR 60 lakhs for this purpose to be spent by Diwali.
NAV Back Office will provide each employee an amount of INR 4,000 to contribute to the effort. The first 24 teams donated an amount of INR 12.4 lakh to non-governmental organisations to support common people with daily provisions as well as patients who are suffering from post-COVID complications. Employees have organised stationery and staples for people stranded due to restricted movement, helped schools in slums to reorganise and reopen, and donated for the treatment of mucormycosis of a mother-of-two.
Other humanitarian initiatives by the NAV BackOffice employees under the campaign include providing provisions to organisations taking care of intellectually-disabled people and lepers, financial assistance to NGO Rays Asha Ki Ek Kiran that houses HIV-positive orphans who cannot be accommodated in regular orphanages, and an animal welfare NGO Help in Suffering located in Durgapura area of the city. The teams also extended financial help and donated fodder for cows of some of the cow shelters in Jaipur.
“The last one-and-a-half year has been life-wrecking for many, in terms of health and finances. As life is slowly getting back to normal for everyone, NAV is thinking about those who are struggling to get back to normal. We came up with this unique model of involving both organisations and direct contact through our employees to reach out to maximum people. NAV Back Office began its journey in this city and prospered here. We believe it is our duty to stand by the city at a time when its people need us the most. We are aiming to reach out to as many people as we can of all ages by Diwali so that they can have a happy and fulfilling time after months of fear and uncertainty caused by COVID-19. We want to celebrate our diwali by making this festival more healthy and prosperous for people in need,” says Mr Anil Agrawal, Managing Director, NAV BackOffice, Jaipur.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, NAV Back Office has been at the forefront of awareness drives to prevent the spread of infection as well as providing medical equipment and any other help to hospitals at the peak of the past two waves. Hospitals across the city were helped with oxygen concentrators, BiPaps, oxygen cylinders, ventilators, masks and sanitizers. The company also organised for distribution of food for COVID patients in home isolation and their families. When the vaccination began, NAV Back Office was among the first few corporations in the city to begin vaccination drives for its employees as well as common people along with conducting awareness drives to address the myths and misconceptions around COVID-19 vaccination. So far, 1,000 people have been vaccinated in these vaccination camps.
