New York (CNN Business)Walmart is setting up vaccination clinics for more than 200,000 of its workers and their families in India, as the country grapples with a devastating second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Although Walmart does not operate any stores in India, it controls two of India's most important online companies: retailer Flipkart and its affiliated digital payment platform PhonePe. Walmart (WMT)said late Thursday that it will donate more than 3,000 oxygen concentrators and 500 oxygen cylinders for delivering respiratory therapy to patients.

"We are working hard to combine Walmart's global capabilities and Flipkart's distribution network to ensure vital oxygen and supplies are made available to those who need them most," Walmart CEO, Doug McMillon, said in a statement.

Google said it would provide a grant to UNICEF for urgent medical supplies, including oxygen and $18 million in aid.
