Agra needs help to tackle these challenges.
Therefore, we are raising funds to donate medical supplies, to start with Oxygen concentrators, to the government health facilities in the Agra district. Initially, we plan to donate 100 Oxygen concentrators with 5-10 LPM capacity at 93±3% oxygen purity.
We are in touch with other Covid relief campaigns also, who are helping us in sourcing these supplies the fastest e.g., Oxygen Concentrators (OC). But we need to place order FAST to ensure that we do get OCs, considering their scarcity in markets due to high demand.
We will be collaborating with local administration and like-minded citizen groups to assess situation at ground level and ensure equity in distribution, with special emphasis on nearby towns and rural areas like Kheragarh, Fatehabad, Bah, Fatehpur Sikri, etc.
Please donate whatever amount you can, as every contribution matters and helps save a life. You can also contribute by sharing this campaign in your social circle or maybe running a support campaign via your social media accounts.
You can also donate on our sister campaign on gofundme through the following link: https://www.gofundme.com/f/mission-agra?utm_source=customer&utm_medium=copy_link&utm_campaign=p_cf+share-flow-1
Complete transparency and accountability trail would be regularly updated here. You can find all the proofs in the google drive link: Mission Agra documents

My name is Robin Chinmaya Sharma. I am an IIT Kanpur alumnus (B.Tech. 2008-12) and a resident of Agra. I can be reached at +917017126234.
I am currently working as Project Manager in Embibe in Bengaluru.
My parents have a NGO named Antyodaya Samadhan Sansthan (registered under Societies Registration Act, 1860 with registration no. AGR/00783/2020-2021) that works in Agra (U.P.) and nearby region, primarily to help disadvantaged sections access govt schemes like ration card, widow pension, etc.
Last year, when national lockdown was imposed in India, we arranged for distribution of ration packets including flour, cooking oil and also prepared meals, to approximately 200 needy families for 68 days. This was made possible through local mobilisation of resources from generous Agra-ites including the local representatives and administration.
