About the Equipment
A Bipap is a non-invasive ventilation device that facilitates breathing.
An oxygen concentrator is a device that concentrates the oxygen from a gas supply by selectively removing nitrogen to supply an oxygen-enriched product gas stream.
The machines are most useful in cases of Covid-19 related breathing difficulties. In the past few days, we have seen the lack of such crucial lifesaving equipment across the country. Each machine can save the lives of many during the current wave and even thereafter.
We are in touch with a suppliers for sourcing the Bipap machines and oxygen concentrators.
With your support, we hope to raise enough funds for the purchase of the machines for the hospital. There is no commission or middlemen.
Your contribution, no matter how small, would go a long way in saving many lives during these difficult times.
