New Delhi: Stepping up to take care of its employees during the devastating second wave of Covid2019, AI-driven online automobile marketplace Droom on Thursday announced Rs one crore budget for its new initiative - Droom Cares.

As a part of this initiative, Droom will ensure sanitization of some healthcare facilities, police stations, clinics, pharmacies, and homes of healthcare workers in Delhi NCR using Germ Shield, its anti-microbial coating. It has also created a Covid SWAT team to verify all leads regarding oxygen supply, hospital beds, ICU availability, oximeters, food suppliers, plasma donors, and Covid-related life-saving drugs.

The company has also launched programs for its 20,500+ dealers to assist with pharmaceuticals, Covid vaccination, medical assistance, and also provide isolation ward to asymptotic dealers with basic medical facilities. It has launched a telemedicine consultation for mental and physical health free of cost for Droomers. A unique Buddy Program has been initiated where Droom will assign one employee to another who is recovering from Covid2019 and requires assistance.

“The second wave of the pandemic has triggered an unprecedented crisis for the country. We would like to show our commitment to society by trying to help people in these difficult times. We have also organized a Covid SWAT room for quick assistance and have converted one of our office facilities into emergency wards with basic medical facilities and doctor teleconsultation for our employees in times of need,” said Droom, founder and CEO, Sandeep Aggarwal.

Among other relief measures, the company has announced a special insurance scheme for all its employees and dealers to have hassle-free treatment in these stressful times. The insurance scheme will give five times more cover to its employees and be also extended to their parents and current family members. “Our endeavor has always been to stand firmly united with our stakeholders in the most stressful times and we are confident to overcome these together,” Aggarwal added.
