- Mastercard today announced a US$10 million (approximately 75 crore rupees) commitment to directly address critical COVID-related needs in India. Over the past few weeks, the country has seen a spike in both COVID diagnoses and deaths, with the healthcare system being stretched to its limits as more than 350,000 new cases are identified each day.
- The philanthropic efforts, delivered through the Mastercard Impact Fund, will focus on three priority areas – access to hospital resources, access to additional oxygen supplies, and continued support of the company’s employees across the country.
