News Highlights

  • The oxygen concentrators will be provided free of cost
  • Oxygen concentrators will be delivered at doorstep via the Ola app
  • Once the patient recovers, the concentrator will be picked up by Ola

Ola Foundation, the philanthropic unit of Ola, has announced a collaboration with GiveIndia to deliver free oxygen concentrators to people via the Ola app. Being termed as 'O2ForIndia' program, this initiative will start as early as this week in Bengaluru with an initial set of 500 oxygen concentrators. Gradually, the company will accentuate it across the entire nation and give away upto 10,000 concentrators in the coming weeks. For those asking, the second wave of the deadly COVID-19 virus has wreaked havoc in India and hence, various automakers have stopped production and instead are indulging in relief work.


People in need can log into the Ola app and request for an oxygen concentrator by filling a few basic details. After the submission, the request will be verified and scrutinized. Post that, Ola will pick up the concentrator via one of its cabs with a specially trained driver and bring it to the consumer’s doorstep. “We must come together and help our communities during these unprecedented times. With the O2ForIndia initiative in partnership with GiveIndia, we will provide free and easy access to oxygen concentrators to those in need. We hope this initiative brings much-needed support during these very difficult times and helps in mitigating the pain and the anxiety among those impacted.” said Bhavish Aggarwal, Chairman and Group CEO, Ola.

Once the patient is out of danger with vital parameters stable and no longer requirement for the concentrator, the company will pick the device back up and return it to GiveIndia to get it ready for the next patient who needs it. This entire experience will be seamless and the oxygen concentrator as well as the doorstep delivery and pickup will be completely free for consumers. “We are happy to partner with Ola during these difficult times. Through this initiative, we will provide oxygen concentrators to those recovering or isolating at home, right at their doorstep. We hope the easier access to oxygen will ease the distress of many patients,” said Atul Satija, CEO and Founder 2.0 at GiveIndia.
