    This fundraiser will benefit

    COVID Patients in need of Oxygen

    from India

We are a volunteer group of entrepreneurs, activists and working professionals from leading institutions - who like many of you - are keen on helping avert this national crisis to our best ability. We are looking to raise funds to procure and supply 50-75 oxygen concentrators along with other medical essentials to India on an immediate basis. Your smallest contribution would help save lives!

The process of distribution of concentrators will be transparent and published in the public domain so every donor can see the impact they have created.

Please help our campaign to let India breathe by donating today!

3) Why are the exchange rates lower than real-time values?
We assure you that exchange rate you see  at the time of donation is purely notional - funds raised in all foreign currencies (we support around 12+ international currencies apart from INR)  are held in our US custodian account and transferred as $ when the organizers request the same.

The exchange rate they receive in Rupees is based on that date of receipt of funds through their bank. For example, current (27-04-2021) notional FX rate on site is  52 INR / SGD whereas the equivalent  FX rate at the time of transfer (on 27-04-2021) to recipient is around ~ 55 INR / SGD

The notional value of keeping a slightly lower exchange rate for display is to ensure that fundraisers don't suffer from a shortage should there be a fluctuation/volatility in currency movements. So we are conservative with our display. Please note that we make no money directly or indirectly in FX arbitrages or floats associated with it.
