    This fundraiser will benefit

    People affected with Covid

    from New Delhi, Delhi

Khedmat is a Trust based in New Delhi which works for the upliftment of socially and economically downtrodden sections of the society, with a special focus on widows, orphans and divorcees.

In the second Covid wave, we initiated Khedmat's Free Ambulance Drive to help fight the healthcare crises whilst keeping it monetarily accessible to people who could not afford ambulance services easily. We have helped 35 patients till now.  

To execute this, we have rented a Maruti Eeco and converted it into an ambulance with a bed and other necessary facilities.

The total approx. cost incurred in this amounts to ₹ 2,32,500. The break up of the expenditure is as under:

  1. Rent: Rs. 25,000
  2. Customisation Cost: Rs. 20,000
  3. Two drivers (salary) for alternative shifts during day and night: 30,000
  4.  Volunteer in Ambulance (2): Rs, 30,000
  5. Fuel: Rs. 1000 per day
  6. PPE Kits (5 visits- 10kits), Masks: Rs. 2000 per day
  7. Sanitisation: Rs. 500 per day
  8. Oxygen Cylinders: 2 cylinders (10L) - Rs. 16000 total
  9. Flow Meters: 1 flow meter- Rs. 1500
  10. Miscellaneous: Rs. 5000

With this fundraising campaign, we aim to launch one more ambulance as part of our drive. Our upcoming POA is as follows: 
  1. Entertain more patients with a total of two running ambulances.
  2. Reach to parts of Delhi we haven't yet reached
  3. An online and offline team has been created to take patient calls and volunteer in the ambulance with the patient.
UPCOMING EXPENDITURE:  
  1.  Monthly maintenance cost of our currently running ambulance: Rs. 1,95,000
  2.  Cost of introducing one new ambulance: Rs. 2,32,500.
  3.  Total fund to be raised: Rs. 4,27,500
We have been successful till now. Help us do more!
