Pune: Vector Informatik India has undertaken initiatives to contribute and invest Rs 55 Lakhs towards COVID-19 testing amongst citizens from weaker section of society residing in Pune and Mumbai cities.

Vector India is a manufacturer of software tools and components for the development of electronic systems and the related networks with a wide range of systems from CAN to Ethernet. The company has collaborated with Krsnaa Diagnostics in Pune and the testing will be done at identified sites for the people residing in low income zones.

In Mumbai, Vector India has partnered with voluntary organization, Be Human Foundation to facilitate testing at Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) identified labs and a mobile vehicle is deployed for collection of samples which facilitates increased reach across the underprivileged sections of city.

Pushkar Sonar, Marketing Head of Vector Informatik India said, “In these unprecedented times, we have decided to support the sections of Pune and Mumbai where the need for testing is higher so that the earliest detection is possible, required medical assistance can be provided and the further spread of virus can be curtailed.”

Mugdha Vartak said, “It is our endeavor to sponsor testing for the low-income residents who are unable to afford the tests, as maximizing the testing in the most affected regions is necessary to contain the spread. We also plan to expand this initiative in Bengaluru in the coming month.”

Corporate Social responsibility (CSR) committee of Vector India has planned the project by identifying the sites in Pune and Mumbai cities. Vector India employees have also taken efforts at their personal level to support stranded people in various parts of our country by volunteering for food distribution and contributed to different non-profit foundations working towards helping people affected by the pandemic.
