Microland, a global digital transformation company, has donated a cardio-neuro ambulance through Microland Foundation to the Kotagiri Medical Fellowship Hospital (KMF) in Tamil Nadu. The Microland Foundation has been spearheading Microland’s social development initiatives.

The ambulance is a boon for hospital as it will cater to health needs of 41 villages scattered within a 10 km radius of Kotagiri region. The region is a remote pocket in Tamil Nadu with a tribal population of 33,570.

Microland gauzed the inadequacy in health infrastructure of the region and KMF Hospital need for an ambulance to cater to the timely critical care needs in this region.

Microland Foundation intervention will be instrumental in providing timely critical care to the underprivileged population of Kotagiri.

Commenting on the initiative to ensure quality healthcare, Kalpana Kar from Microland Foundation said, “It is the spirit of community service, partnership and dedication that drew Microland Foundation to support this COVID-19 health infrastructure upgradation and access project. The ambulance is additionally planned to assist the outreach clinics and be used for home visits, ensuring full and effective utilization and positive community health outcomes.”

In order to maximize the usage of the ambulance, the ambulance will serve the dual purpose of transporting patients to hospitals in Coimbatore for specialized treatment not available at KMF Hospital and delivering timely critical care.

Microland Foundation has been actively engaged in several environment and health-focused initiatives in the Nilgiris District of Tamil Nadu. It has partnerships with corporates, academia, government agencies and individuals towards solving the prevailing challenges in the region in a sustainable way.

In order to cater to patients with renal diseases, Microland Foundation has set up a dialysis unit with two dialysis machines at the Lawly Hospital in collaboration with Rotary Club. The dialysis unit which is run by the government in Coonoor has ensured patients do not travel to bigger towns and cities for the facility.
