An Initiative to tackle Covid 19 situation in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh by providing Oxygen Concentrators, other medical infrastructure based upon periodic analysis of people's need
We are alumni from IIM Ahmedabad based out of Hyderabad partnered with volunteers from alumni of other IIMs/IITs/NITs/ICAI and other prestigious institutions as well We studied the current covid care supply chain in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh and identified various resources in short supply in the system We are striving to ease the pressure on the health care system by infusing resources efficiently
What is the problem we are trying to solve:
What do we plan to do:
We are working to import Oxygen concentrators of different capacities from abroad and plan to distribute the same to Hospitals/people in need based on the assessment of the demand-supply gap at each of the major hospitals/covid care centers. We are collaborating with Mission Oxygen which already imported 6000 concentrators and has established an efficient procurement capability. We will also deploy other medical infra facilities to ease pressure on our health care system
A brief about the Oxygen Concentrators:
Oxygen concentrators are the easiest alternatives to cylinders and are best suited for moderately ill patients. Apart from electricity and routine maintenance, there’s little by way of operational cost, unlike cylinders that involve refilling costs and transportation.
Utilization of Funds:
Each 10Ltr hospital-grade concentrator costs Rs. 70,000. We are working to import oxygen concentrators from verified suppliers and distribute them to people in need. We will also deploy other medical infra equipment/items that can ease pressure on our health care system based upon dynamic analysis of the demand.
How you can contribute:
We are targeting to raise Rs. 1 crore which will provide us the fund required to source about 100 concentrators and 500 cylinders. We will be providing 80G certificates to all donors to your registered mail i.ds ASAP. Further, as per clarification provided by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs, the spending for these activities shall be considered as part of "CSR Spendings" of the organizations
