Dr. Majeed Foundation Makes Contributions to Combat COVID-19 Impact in India


The foundation, started by the founder and chairman of Sabinsa, funded several community outreach programs in India.

The Dr. Majeed Foundation, a nonprofit organization established by the founder and chairman of Sabinsa, Dr. Muhammmed Majeed, has channeled significant support to people impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic through contributions made to organizations and its own community outreach programs, to vulnerable communities in Bengaluru and Hyderabad, India. They contributed $1.32 million USD to the Prime Minister’s Citizen Assistance and Relief in emergency Situations fund (PM CARES Fund) and over $250,000 USD to the Karnataka State Disaster Management Authority.
The PM CARES Fund was created on March 28 this year following the COVID-19 pandemic reaching India. The funds will be used for combating, containment, and relief efforts against the coronavirus outbreak and similar situations in the future. Money raised by the PM CARES Fund has supplied 50,000 ventilators, been invested in vaccine development, and funded the care of migrant laborers.
In recent weeks, in Bengaluru and Hyderabad, the Dr. Majeed Foundation distributed a total of 3,600 kits containing essential food items, protective equipment, hand sanitizers, and health supplements. Teams from Sabinsa’s parent company, Sami Labs, helped to distribute items to poor, elderly, and vulnerable people living near the company’s Hyderabad facility.
“We have always believed in supporting the less fortunate while giving back to society and the nation,” Majeed said. “Today, as the COVID-19 pandemic poses an unprecedented challenge for the country, supporting efforts such as the PM CARES Fund is a step towards helping combat the virus.”
Sabinsa was founded in 1988, and is a manufacturer and supplier in the dietary supplements industry, specializing in herbs and botanicals, cosmeceuticals, probiotics, minerals, and specialty fine chemicals.
