Share this:

The Boeing Company, one of the world’s largest aircraft manufacturers from Chicago, Illinois, USA, launched a US$10 million emergency assistance package to support the handling of India’s spike in COVID-19 cases.

As is known, currently the case of COVID-19 in India is very worrying with an increase in the number of cases between 350,000-400,000 per day. India’s COVID-19 case is now the second-worst after the US.

Therefore, Boeing felt the need to help, especially since the company has 3,000 employees, in addition to local customers, suppliers, and business partners, in the country. Aid will be delivered through local and international aid organizations.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has devastated communities around the world, and our hearts go out to our friends in India who are going through very difficult times,” said Dave Calhoun, President, and CEO of The Boeing Company, on Friday (30/4).

Boeing has been present in India for more than seven decades. Today, Tata-Boeing, its joint venture with local company Tata, has manufactured key parts and components for products across the company’s portfolio.

Boeing’s local community engagement in India has positively impacted more than 300,000 people domestically through investments in education, health and sanitation, skills development, and outreach programs.
