Gautam Adani and his foundation have arranged an air ambulance to help transfer mountaineer Anurag Maloo after falling into a deep crevasse n Nepal’s Mount Annapurna last month, from Kathmandu to the AIIMS in New Delhi.
On April 2017, Anurag Maloo went missing after falling from 5,800 meters while climbing Mount Annapurna- the 10th highest mountain in the world with treacherous terrain.
Mountaineer’s brother Aashish Maloo took to Twitter today to express gratitude for the timely action by Adani to airlift the injured.
“Grateful beyond words for the timely airlifting! Heartfelt thanks to @gautam_adani and @AdaniFoundation for their invaluable support in repatriating @AnuragMaloo safely,” he tweeted.
His family requested the Adani Foundation’s assistance to arrange and bear the cost of the airlift and ground transfer from Nepal to India as the price seemed to be beyond their means.
Adani group founder and chairman Gautam Adani promptly acted and his philanthropy arm, Adani Foundation arranged an air ambulance and transfer.
Anurag Maloo was rescued and airlifted to the All-India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in New Delhi for medical treatment and is currently undergoing treatment.
Replying to Aashish Maloo’s tweet, Mr. Adani said it was a privilege for him and his wife, who heads Adani Foundation, to help the injured mountaineer.
“Priti and I are privileged to be of help. We are happy to learn that Anurag is safe and are praying for his speedy recovery. We are confident that he will soon be ready to conquer more of life’s peaks,” he tweeted.
