There are only very few hospitals upon which the entire community is dependent on and it has run out of beds and oxygen cylinders at the moment. We are a group of volunteers working for the welfare of the farmers and their livelihood since the times of the Gaja cyclone(2018) and we are trying to do our best to help them survive this pandemic.
We are raising funds to source at least 20 oxygen concentrators with a flow rate of 10 litres so that at least 40 patients will be benefited at once.
An oxygen concentrator with a 5-litre flow rate costs Rs.85000 and we need 20 such concentrators at the moment to save lives. The total cost amounts to Rs.19,00000 (Nineteen lakhs). As it would take at least 10 days for us to receive the concentrators after placing the order, we request all of you to contribute whatever you can so that we can together save many lives.
Alongside concentrators, we are also trying to arrange for ambulances to help our people commute to hospitals as necessary. As the first phase of relief measures during such tough times, we have taken up this initiative and with your support, we are sure we would be able to buy the necessary medical equipment and arrange ambulance services for the people of Tanjore and Pudukkottai.
