As reported on April 24, India has recorded more than 3.5 lakh new cases of Covid 19. This snowballing curve of positive cases and fatalities, lack of life-saving equipment like oxygen cylinders, essential medicines, protective gear etc is having a crumbling effect on our healthcare infrastructure.
In response to this, we are re-launching our mission to protect our brothers and sisters in need by getting them access to medicines, oxygen cylinders, help charitable hospitals, Covid care centres and healthcare workers across the country to amplify their efforts.
Your contribution will help critical patients, hospitals and Covid Care Centres with life-saving equipment. It will provide oxygen concentrators, refill oxygen cylinders and help Covid Care Centres and charitable hospitals with supplies of N95 Masks, PPE Kits, sanitisers and other resources
