In a bid to ensure equitable vaccination accessibility, Villoo Poonawalla Charitable Foundation and Kineer Services – a social enterprise announces ‘Parivartan Ka Teeka’ – an initiative to provide free-of-cost vaccination for the transgender community nationwide. The initiative aims to fully vaccinate all the members of the transgender community over the next six months.
Kineer will organise camps across 200 centres of Apollo Hospitals and NGOs as well as individuals can register themselves at their choice of the vaccination camp in their locality. The initiative will also aim to raise awareness and seek to empower the community against COVID-19.
Sharing his thoughts on the initiative, Mr. Jaswinder Narang, CEO, Villoo Poonawalla Charitable Foundation said, “We are delighted to have collaborated with Laxmi Narayan Tripathi and Kineer Services in providing equal opportunities to the transgender community in the country. The only way we will come out of the pandemic is by ensuring that each one of us are fully vaccinated and immunized. The initiative is a step towards making vaccination accessible and affordable, and fortifies our objective of inclusive healthcare for all.”
Delighted at this campaign drive, Laxmi Tripathi, Kineer Services said, “We, at Kineer Services are overwhelmed by the support extended by Villoo Poonawalla Charitable Foundation to make vaccines equitable and accessible for the transgender community. The initiative is an effort to fight the pandemic and make sure that no one is left behind.
