Distribution of emergency oxygen concentrators for Covid-19 patients in Pune, India (we can only accept from bank accounts within India)
We are shaken and deeply affected by the tsunami that has been unleashed on us all by the recent Covid-19 wave. It has been a traumatic time for everyone in India as well as for our team on the ground in Pune, with half of us testing positive for the coronavirus. We are seeing the tragedy around us and must do something for our own people. Despite our soldiers being down, we have initiated the COVID RELIEF FUND after firsthand witnessing the oxygen shortages, lack of beds and traumatic state of affairs in Pune.
We are committed to buying oxygen concentrators and plugging them in with beds in as many “bastis” and “mohallas” around Pune as we can. An oxygen concentrator costing around INR 79,000/ USD 1,060 can provide around 5 liters of oxygen a minute, sufficient in many cases to help save a life while an ambulance arrives or the family searches for a bed.
This year, we aim to direct your donations from the COVID RELIEF FUND locally on-ground towards the purchase and provision of oxygen concentrators to those in urgent need.
Thank you. Please help. Please donate.
