With an aim to provide consumers with oxygen concentrators for free, India’s one of the leading mobility platforms Ola via its philanthropic arm, Ola Foundation, has entered into a partnership with GiveIndia and launch an O2ForIndia Initiative.

The electric two-wheeler manufacturer said that this service will start rolling out in Bangalore from this week with an initial set of 500 oxygen concentrators.

Both the organisations, further, planning to scale it up across the country with upto 10,000 concentrators in the coming weeks.

To avail the benefit, consumers will have to log into the Ola app and request for an oxygen concentrator by providing a few basic details. Once submitted, the request will be validated and Ola will then pick up the concentrator via one of its cabs with a specially trained driver and bring it to the consumer’s doorstep.

Once the patient has gotten better and no longer requires the concentrator, Ola 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, the ridesharing company said.

Commenting on the O2ForIndia Initiative, Bhavish Aggarwal, Chairman and Group CEO of Ola, said “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.”

“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.
