Madhu Jain, Director, IIFL Foundation said, “We are adopting a 3600 approach towards supporting the community during the pandemic.

Staying true to this thought, we have donated a ventilator to the Holy Spirit Hospital in Mumbai. The hospital will deploy this machine to provide quality, concessional treatment to the deprived patients.”
