For US Donors, we have the following options:
1. If your company uses Benevity for Donations, Search "Help Indian Hospitals Fight Covid-19 Crisis” cause (this cause is via Deserving Causes India Foundation) and donate for this specific project. This empowers you to get tax benefit and corporate matching directly from Benevity.
2. If your company doesn’t use Benevity, you can use http://www.deservingcauses.org/iitk-covid/ to make tax-exempt donations. Please note Deserver Causes is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization setup to help with Disaster Relief & Rehabilitation, Education and Blood Donation & Research in India.
Our campaign to provide on-demand medical supplies has exceeded its first goal of 1 Crore INR within a week with fund utilisation of 95%.
To service incoming SOS calls from Hospitals, we have procured/ supplied
- 60 oxygen concentrators
- 70 oxygen cylinders
- 17 Respiratory care machines (mini ventilators)
- 25 Vital sign monitors (ECG etc)
- Other essential supplies like stretchers, PPE, medicines
to 42 hospitals across 31 locations.
We have set-up the necessary workflow and team to coordinate incoming requests from hospitals. We are relying on the extensive network of our core team: Indian Civil Servants are bringing in their on-the-ground expertise & demand from hospitals while others are connecting to suppliers across the country & world. This is really empowering us to fulfill the need ASAP. As you all know, time is of essence right now in this fight against Covid-19.
These life-critical supplies are helping hospitals save thousands of lives but it is not enough.
In this relentless fight against COVID, every timely contribution matters. We are now targeting to raise 7.5 Crore INR (1M USD) and help 100 hospitals across the country by supplying 400 oxygen concentrators, 200 mini-ventilators, 800 oxygen cylinders and other essential supplies.
So come join us with your support.
Please contribute to this fundraiser, ask for corporate matching if applicable and share it with your families, friends and social media. Every penny of your hard-earned money would go towards saving lives.
Let’s Save Lives together!
