It is a 25 bedded facility with oxygen concentrators/cylinders for every bed to treat moderate cases, including 10 beds with BiPAP machines for critical cases, along with free medicines and cooked food. The centre will also have ECG facility and cardiac monitors. The centre has an ambulance attached and severely ill patients can be easily shifted to nearest hospital with required facilities.
The centre, being set up in Hathin, which is one of the most backward regions according to NITI Aayog, will cater to the most vulnerable Covid patients in this rural area and its vicinity. People who have no money to even buy basic medicines and nutritious food, will get proper treatment with doctors, trained staff and best amenities for free.
We need your support in maintaining the operations at the facility including but not limited to:
- Free medicines
- Free cooked meals thrice a day
- Salary for the non-medical staff
- Expenses incurred towards supporting low income patients in getting lab and imaging tests done at nearby centres.
- PPE kits for staff and volunteers
- Free masks and regular sanitisation
- Community outreach program

During the COVID-led lockdown in 2020 that brought the biggest migrant crisis seen in India, we helped 6100+ migrants reach home safely through support from fellow citizens by arranging buses, train tickets and air tickets.
The Wire covered the chaos on Thursday, 18th June, lead by #mismanagement in #ShramikSpecialTrains, that left 200+ #MigrantsOnTheRoad. Fortunately, our team could spring to action and help everyone reach #home safely! all thanks to our team!
