Supporting those hard-hit by Covid-19

As the battle against Covid-19 continues, various groups of people within our communities are facing enormous needs. At DBS, our support for our communities comes through various initiatives and programmes.

DBS Stronger Together Fund

DBS partnered with United Way Mumbai to distribute over 200 personal protective equipment kits to Mumbai’s healthcare workers.
Millions of drivers were out of work during the lockdown. DBS supported Ola’s Drive the Driver initiative, sponsoring more than 5800 kits containing essential supplies for drivers and their families
Our colleagues volunteered to manage and oversee the distribution of essential supplies to over 7,000 households in seven remote villages in Kolhapur.

DBS India incentivized customers to contribute towards The Akshaya Patra Foundation’s relief efforts by matching each individual’s donation with twice the amount. Over 400,000 nutritious meals provided to the underprivileged.

DBS People of Purpose
Driving impact for the elderly, education and the environment with our employee volunteer movement.

This DBS volunteer makes a difference every day when he goes out to feed stray animals near his house. Come rain or shine, even during the nation-wide lockdown.

Our colleagues prepared and distributed home-cooked meals to the homeless in Chennai in their personal capacities, delivering over 100 meals a day at the height of the lockdown.

Our colleagues in the Technology & Operations team personally drove from Pune to Mumbai to collect laptops for the Contact Center team so that they could ensure that operations continued seamlessly for customers, from the safety if their homes.
