Urgent Appeal: 25 ICU Beds

Mission Save Lives/ Urgent Appeal: 25 ICU beds for Covid Patients

India is struggling to stay alive as hospitals are running short of medical equipment and facilities to treat our vast population. Many people who required intensive care in their treatment have lost lives due to the unavailability of Critical Care beds. 

Zodiac Foundation is calling for help by seeking funding of 4 cr for the infrastructure of 25 ICU Beds. We have tied up with Grand Port hospital in this mission, which would provide 5000 sq. ft. space, required manpower, and supporting infrastructure.

Covid 19 is a clear and present danger and the biggest challenge of it is to arrest the spread of this infection in absence of a vaccine or a cure.
In the city of Mumbai, there is a large-scale need for ICU Beds. Presently there are about 500 ICU Beds with Government-run medical institutions and about 2000 ICU Beds with Privately run medical institutions. The most worrying part is the mortality rate of the COVID-affected people. Reduce mortality is a bigger challenge.

Covid patients and their kin desperately seeking ICU or Ventilator Beds have unfortunately become a common sight. The bigger problem is qualified people to operate these beds. In the present situation, there is clearly a need for establishing more ICU beds to deal with any kind of eventuality as well as to send out a message of comfort and care to the larger population of the city of Mumbai.

The proposal envisages developing a 25 ICU beds facility to treat patients with the contagious outbreak of COVID. We propose to establish a 25 Bed ICU facility in the shortest possible time of 30 to 45 days. The ICU facility will have the following ICU beds, Ventilators, Multi-channel monitors, High Flow Nasal Cannula (HNFC), Infusion pumps, Defibrillator, Fiber optic bronchoscope, USG, and Oxygen supply unit. The infrastructure will consist of HVAC, Lighting, Furniture, Waste disposal, and Infection control.

We live from one emergency to another. The population at the bottom of our social pyramid has suffered the most due to a lack of medical facilities and availability. Over the past few weeks, many have lost lives in ambulances and parking lots outside hospitals. Certainly, we are not in the same boat, but we are in the same ocean. And, many of us are drowning. As responsible citizens of the nation, it is our duty to come together and serve those who need us.

This facility that we seek to create will continue to exist even after the present times and serve the people of the city of Mumbai those who cannot afford critical care.

Help us raise funds to save lives.
