Coming as a timely gesture, Chennai Super Kings Cricket Ltd (CSKCL) has extended support to the people of Tamil Nadu in the fight against the surging Covid-19 second wave. CSKCL has arranged for the delivery of 450 Oxygen concentrators.
CSKCL Director Mr R Srinivasan handed over an Oxygen concentrator to the Hon Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, Thiru MK Stalin, on Saturday in the presence of Mrs Rupa Gurunath, President, Tamil Nadu Cricket Association.
Bhoomika Trust, an NGO involved in Covid relief operations, helped CSKCL in arranging for the supply of the Oxygen concentrators and will also coordinate in the distribution. The first consignment of Oxygen concentrators has arrived and the remaining is expected to reach early next week.
CSKCL is delivering the Oxygen concentrators for the benefit of Covid patients being treated in Government hospitals and the Greater Chennai Corporation (GCC)-run Covid care centres.
Oxygen concentrator is an alternative to Liquid Medical Oxygen and is used by both home isolated patients and moderate patients in hospitals.
CSK has been spreading awareness through “Mask Podu” (Wear Mask) campaign and regular distribution of relevant information through their social media platforms.
Since April, CSK players have been highlighting the importance of Covid protection measures and urging the public to get vaccinated at the earliest. These creatives are being displayed on 90 Variable Message Display systems of the GCC across the city.
“The people of Chennai and Tamil Nadu form the very heartbeat of the Super Kings and we want them to know that we are all together in this fight against the pandemic,” CSK CEO Mr KS Viswanathan said
