Adani Foundation comes to the rescue of mountaineer Anurag Maloo

New Delhi, May 17 : Anurag Maloo is a mountaineer and a climate athlete. He is a resident of Kishangarh, Rajasthan. Recently, he went on an expedition to Mount Annapurna in Nepal, one of the highest peaks in the world.

Mountaineer's brother Aashish Maloo, on Tuesday, took to Twitter 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.

A resident of Kishangarh in Rajasthan, Maloo went missing on April 17 after falling from an altitude of 5,800 meters while descending from Camp III on Mount Annapurna - the 10th highest mountain in the world, which is known for its treacherous terrain.

He survived in the avalanche-prone crevasse for three days before being rescued on the morning of April 20. He was in critical condition and was first taken to a nearby medical camp, then to Manipal Hospital in Pokhara, and later to Kathmandu's Medicity Hospital.

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 cost 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 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's tweet, Adani said it was a privilege for him and his wife, who heads Adani Foundation, to help the injured mountaineer.
