Gautam Adani Helps Mountaineer Anurag Maloo Airlift to AIIMS from Kathmandu
Gautam Adani, the founder and chairman of Adani Group, has helped airlift Anurag Maloo, a mountaineer, to the AIIMS hospital in New Delhi from Kathmandu. Maloo had reportedly fallen ill while getting his climbing gear together in the Everest Base Camp.
Adani Foundation, a philanthropic arm of the Adani Group, coordinated the airlift of Maloo in coordination with the Indian Embassy in Nepal, Civil Hospital in Kathmandu, AIIMS hospital, and the Ministry of External Affairs.
The efforts were conducted under the Adani Foundation’s ‘My Defence India’ initiative, which is aimed at supporting the Indian armed forces and their families. The initiative has also been extended to support civilians during times of natural calamities or emergencies.
Anurag Maloo’s Condition and Adani’s Efforts
Anurag Maloo had been preparing for a summit ascent on Mt. Everest, which stands at 8,848 meters, when he fell ill. He was reportedly vomiting and suffering from dehydration at the Everest Base Camp. After being airlifted to Kathmandu, he was admitted to the Civil Hospital for medical treatment.
Gautam Adani was alerted about Maloo’s situation by the mountaineer’s parents. He then contacted the Indian Embassy in Nepal to coordinate the airlift of the mountaineer to AIIMS in New Delhi, where he could receive the necessary medical attention.
The Adani Foundation’s ‘My Defence India’ initiative provided the financial support required for the airlift of Maloo, along with the necessary resources and coordination with relevant authorities. A spokesperson for the foundation said that the initiative is committed to supporting the Indian armed forces and civilians in need, even in the most adverse situations.
Importance of Philanthropic Efforts during Emergencies
Gautam Adani’s efforts to airlift Anurag Maloo from Kathmandu to New Delhi highlight the importance of philanthropic efforts during times of emergencies. Whether it’s natural disasters, medical emergencies, or other forms of crises, philanthropic endeavors can make a significant impact in providing aid and support to those who need it most.
In recent years, there has been a growing trend of high-net-worth individuals and corporations using their resources and influence to support philanthropic causes. This trend has been driven by several factors, including a desire to give back to the community, a need to address pressing societal issues, and an opportunity to foster positive brand reputation and goodwill.
The Adani Group has been actively involved in philanthropic endeavors through the Adani Foundation, which was established in 1996. The foundation focuses on four key areas: education, healthcare, sustainable livelihoods, and community infrastructure development. Its initiatives have impacted over 3.2 million people across 12 states in India.
Gautam Adani’s efforts to airlift Anurag Maloo to the AIIMS hospital in New Delhi showcase the philanthropic initiatives undertaken by high-net-worth individuals and corporations to support the community during crises. The Adani Foundation’s ‘My Defence India’ initiative demonstrates the importance of pooling resources and coordinating with relevant authorities to provide aid and support to those in need. With philanthropy becoming an increasingly important avenue for addressing societal challenges, initiatives such as these can make a significant difference in people’s lives.
