Speaking on the occasion, Neeraj Jain says, “My motivation to honour doctors’ for their role in the COVID era became stronger also due to an incident which took place in our family. My sister who works in Las Vegas, USA as a doctor got infected with the n Corona virus while treating patients in the US hospital where she works. Subsequently she recovered but our family had to face difficult times.”
Jain adds, “After this incident, I realized that doctors were putting their lives on the line and taking up a major risk while taking care of COVID patients round the clock. And for this contribution, society should honour these frontline warriors. So we curated the felicitation of doctors.”
It is noteworthy that Jain had earlier on his own and by motivating other like minded, also provided financial assistance and high-quality PPE kits for the doctors and healthcare staff of Landour Community Hospital, (LCH), Mussoorie, which caters to the entire hill station and surrounding area within 80km.
Jain further adds, “As part of our CSR we also want to use this occasion to announce our commitment towards helping the poorest of the poor who have unfortunately got infected by the Corona Virus and need immediate medical attention.” He ensured that the organization will help such genuine people in getting the best treatment and said.
