KLA Unites to Provide India COVID Relief

May 27, 2021 2 min read

At KLA, the health, safety and wellbeing of our global employees and their families is our top priority. For over 20 years, the KLA Foundation has remained committed to aiding the communities in which our employees work and live. With the recent resurgence of the coronavirus outbreak in India, the Foundation is expanding its COVID-19 relief efforts in India with a donation of $550,000 to help combat the second wave of infections currently taxing the country’s healthcare system amidst a national vaccine shortage.

“KLA is already taking action to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our employees and their families with additional employee health benefits, including telemedicine support by doctors and nurses, providing vaccination support, and organizing isolation care facilities.”

Dominic David, President of Operations, KLA India

Creating Sustainable Change

The fund, announced earlier this month, is enabling healthcare facilities to procure much needed critical care equipment such as oxygen generators, syringe infusion pumps, beds and other medical supplies. Consistent to the Foundation’s commitment to providing support and resources for impactful and sustainable change, the donation will also fund a long-term community investment to build additional ICU capacity to address the needs of under-privileged communities in hospitals. 

Stronger Together

Through the India COVID Relief Fund campaign established on our internal Global Giving Platform, KLA employees have made over $40,500 of personal donations so far, which will be matched by the company.  

“This donation by the KLA Foundation and fellow colleagues is helping to mobilize rapid response efforts here in Chennai and the broader community. We thank our KLA colleagues around the world for their assistance and contributions.”
