Ola to offer free oxygen concentrators to the needy
Ola has stated that it will not be charging its users for the concentrator or its transportation. The service will kick off with 500 oxygen concentrators.
Ola has announced that it will soon start helping users procure oxygen concentrators by providing a few basic details. After the details are validated the company will deliver the oxygen concentrator to the user's doorstep free of charge. To provide this service, the Ola Foundation has partnered with the Give India organisation. The service will start rolling out in Bangalore next week and will expand across India in the coming weeks.
The company has stated that it will not be charging its users for the concentrator or its transportation. And after the user has recovered and feels better, it will take the concentrator back.
The service in partnership with Give India will kick off with 500 oxygen concentrators in Bangalore, later scaling up across the country with up to 10,000 units in the coming weeks.
Ride-hailing companies like Ola, Uber and Rapido have come up with a helping hand during such difficult times. Uber and Rapido are offering free rides to eligible users to and from the vaccination centres.
Uber users can add promo code 10M21V in the wallet to avail the benefit.
