Deshpande Foundation Covid-19 crisis efforts


Hubballi-Dharwad district, as well as the whole of Karnataka is in a state of flux due to the covid-19 pandemic. Under these critical circumstances, Deshpande Foundation has identified the challenges, and quite like last year, we have come forward in assisting the District Administration through our areas of strength such as technology, operations, infrastructure, human resource etc. The foundation strongly believes that the support initiatives and pandemic relief efforts would make a difference in the up-hill task of battling through the covid-19 situation not just in the district of Dharwad but possibly in more districts of Northern Karnataka.


In the first week of May 2021, Deshpande Foundation provided 300 cots and beds to the Dharwad District Hospital and Karnataka Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS) in Hubballi. Subsequently, Deshpande Skilling Centre hostel infrastructure has also been provided as a quarantine facility which can accommodate a maximum of 750 patients at any given period. The foundation is also assisting the District Administration as capacity builders and knowledge partners as per the exigencies.


But there is a lot more to be done; and that is why we seek your partnership to amplify and scale our efforts to save lives. We request you to come forward and support in braving through these challenging times, because fewer would have to face death if we as a community come together.
