FedEx Delivering Critical COVID-19 Aid to India

MEMPHIS, Tenn., May 6, 2021— As India and its healthcare systems face a surge in COVID-19 infections across the country, FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) and the world’s largest express transportation company, is working with organizations around the world to deliver critical medical supplies and equipment during this crisis.

FedEx is currently supporting the transportation of more than 25,000 oxygen concentrators and converters through an initiative with the U.S.-India Strategic Partnership Forum and other multinational companies. An initial shipment of 1,000 critical oxygen concentrators was delivered by FedEx to New Delhi on April 30 as part of this collective.

On May 8, FedEx is donating a FedEx Boeing 777F charter flight to move more than 3,400 oxygen concentrators, converters, and nearly 265,000 KN95 masks for Direct Relief from Newark, New Jersey to Mumbai, India. The supplies will ultimately be delivered to healthcare facilities in Mumbai. In addition, FedEx is working with customers and non-profit organizations to deliver hundreds of tonnes of medical supplies and aid into India in the days and weeks ahead.

FedEx also is a founding member of the  Global Task Force on Pandemic Response, a public-private partnership organized by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and supported by the Business Roundtable to provide a unified platform for businesses to mobilize and deliver resources to assist COVID-19 efforts in areas of the highest need around the world. FedEx President and COO Raj Subramaniam are one of 17 business leaders serving on the steering committee for the task force.

“The devastating humanitarian crisis in India requires relief from around the world, and it is our mission to deliver critical aid needed to help alleviate suffering,” Subramaniam said. “We have been on the frontlines delivering relief since the start of the pandemic, and are responding to the urgent situation in India now. FedEx will continue to deliver lifesaving medicine, personal protective equipment, and other critical supplies until this pandemic is over.”

 FedEx has moved more than 10,000 COVID-19 humanitarian aid shipments since January 2020. The company has also committed $4 million in cash and in-kind transportation support to help nonprofits including Direct Relief and International Medical Corps distribute COVID-19 vaccines to under-resourced communities around the world.

FedEx has a long history of moving critical items across the globe. Since the start of the pandemic, FedEx Express has shipped more than 80 kilotons of personal protective equipment, including more than 2.2 billion masks worldwide. An integral part of the global vaccine supply chain, FedEx is currently delivering COVID-19 vaccines, related ingredients, and supplies to more than 25 countries around the world.

“Direct Relief is thankful beyond words for FedEx enabling scaled-up assistance that’s critically needed by people in India, where growing COVID-19 cases present such severe threats to their health,” said Thomas Tighe, Direct Relief President, and CEO. “As it has on so many other occasions, FedEx devoting its unique logistics capacity and the skills and energies of its global team is a perfect example of the type of leadership and commitment that is needed now to combat this historic pandemic and the risks to people everywhere.”

The delivery of the lifesaving supplies is consistent with the company’s FedEx Cares 50 by 50 goal to positively impact 50 million people around the world by the company’s 50th anniversary in 2023. Learn more about the FedEx Cares “Delivering for Good” initiative here.

  • Mahindra’s Integrated Watershed Management Project (IWMP) covers 13 villages in Madhya Pradesh
  • Over 10 million liters of rainwater harvested for irrigation per year
  • Benefits over 1600 families for an average increase of 50% in household income over the baseline

 Damoh, March 22, 2021: The Integrated Watershed Management Project (IWMP) a Public-private partnership between Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd., and NABARD (National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development) introduced at Hatta-Damoh, Madhya Pradesh in 2015 has resulted in increased availability of over 10 million liters of surface water per year. An exemplary award-winning project in watershed management, IWMP was conceived to uplift the marginalized and vulnerable farming community and address water scarcity issues in the region.

The IWMP program follows the ‘Ridge to Valley’ watershed treatment model which is based on a thorough examination of the village topography. Factors considered include existing watershed structures, rainwater drainage routes, existing storage tanks, and irrigation channels. Each village gets a combination of watershed structures that work in unison to achieve the final overall output. Additionally, the project focuses on the enhancement of farm productivity through activities like seed replacement and a proper package of capacity enhancement for marginalized farmers. Under the program, the creation of SHGs (Self Help Groups) has seen a significant positive impact in many households especially women members.

 Commenting on the success of the initiative, Rajeshwar Tripathi, Chief Human Resources Officer, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. said, “We at Mahindra are proud to see the kind of impact that the IWMP has had in the last five years. It has led to positive developments in the region and is a fine example of a successful Public-private partnership model. The program has also proved to be a sustainable and replicable model which can help the country meet its national goals.”

Mahindra has also introduced and promoted efficient ways of irrigation and demonstrated a structure for a sustainable farming model in the region through the program. This has resulted in a 60% drop in the flood irrigation methods used by program beneficiaries and a significant increase in groundwater level in the region. Also, 65% of agricultural land was secured with soil moisture retention with a drainage system allowing running water to flow in the region. The program saw the building of 87 farm ponds which help in rainwater harvesting. This water is used for irrigation, benefiting over 6000 farmers resulting in an average increase of household income through crop yield by over 50% of the baseline.

Other notable interventions undertaken under the project, include: 
  • Seed replacement
  • Creation of Farm ponds
  • Farm bunding
  • Toilet construction
  • Health camps
  • Drinking water tanks and LED lights
