You must already be aware of the COVID situation in India, especially in Madhya Pradesh According to official figures, every day over 350,000 people are contracting the virus in the country, and over 3,500 are losing their lives. However, it is estimated that the real numbers are way higher. The long queues outside hospitals, medical stores, oxygen suppliers, and even crematoriums and graveyards show that the country is going through its biggest crisis in history! While international aid is trickling in, it will take a long time to reach tier-2 and tier-3 cities and towns.
WHO ARE WE?
We are a group of people trying to help any and everyone in our home town. We are native residents of Rajgarh, Madhya Pradesh, and work for different companies in India and Abroad. You can find our Facebook profile in the signature below.
IDENTIFYING THE GAP
We realized that the main problem in our district is the lack of oxygen cylinders and concentrators.
A lot of people are not able to get aid when their SpO2 levels are falling in the range of 80-90%. If patients are not helped with oxygen and proper medication at this stage, their situation deteriorates, and they require hospitalization. This increases the burden on an overstretched and under-resourced public health system. While there are not sufficient oxygen cylinders and concentrators. This shortage is hampering relief efforts.
RESEARCH ON SUPPLY AND DEMAND OF OXYGEN CYLINDERS
We did thorough research and narrowed it down to suppliers from Manipal and Rajasthan who are not charging exorbitant rates for cylinders and concentrators. Our District Hospital need these cylinders and concentrators desperately. People from different social backgrounds are also helping us in this initiative.
As first steps, we will place orders for-
- 10 pcs of 47L Oxygen Cylinders
- 5 Oxygen Concentrators (10L)
- 5 Oxygen Concentrators (5L)
In addition to this, we have received requests for non-invasive ventilators. We are looking for reliable vendors for the same.
We will be attaching the specifications, invoices, and pictures soon. These cylinders will be sent to Rajgarh. We are working with city administrations, local people, and community organizations to deliver these products.
We plan to expand the campaign and procure a ventilator as well.
HOW CAN YOU CONTRIBUTE?
We have contributed our part and are crowdfunding for the remaining part of the order. The total fundraising amount is Rs. 10,00,000 and we aim to raise it by 1st June 2021. For this fundraiser, we are also accepting foreign donations.
