New Delhi, October, 2023.
Optum team members volunteered at multiple NGOs across Delhi NCR to connect with local communities and to help make a positive difference. This was part of the annual Geographically Inclusive Volunteer Event (G.I.V.E.) at Optum, taking place between October 3-15, 2023. Optum is a leading health solution and care delivery organization, part of UnitedHealth Group (UHG), a Fortune 5 company.
The volunteers from Optum partnered with NGOs including,
- CanSupport, to engage with and bring smiles to the faces of patients receiving palliative care for cancer treatment
- Maxvision Social Welfare Society, to interact with the children, women and the elderly and to engage them with performative arts.
- Saint Hardyal Educational and Orphans Welfare Society (SHEOWS) to interact with their elderly residents over lunch
- BooksForAll to engage children with live acts, wherein children presided as judges and rated the performances.
Through G.I.V.E., the aim is to foster an environment of sensitivity, empathy and hope while providing team members a platform to care, connect and grow together.
