Delhi is facing an oxygen shortage due to the suffocating surge in daily COVID cases, creating havoc across the whole city. Institutions such as Shanti Mukand Hospital (SMH) are crumbling due to the shortage of essential supplies and medical equipment while coping with this disaster.
We are a bunch of mid teenagers out of whom one's grandfather got admitted at SMH in a critical condition. The lack of medical supplies due to financial stress was clearly palpable. Still, with the limited resources, the frontline healthcare workers wanted to support all those dire critical patients in every possible way the Hospital was admitting. We saw a video of the CEO of the Hospital breaking down while being asked about the medical supplies, going viral in the news. Seeing SMH on the verge of a possible collapse left us heartbroken. This acted as a wake-up call which prompted us to do our bit as we want to see this fighting Hospital in a much better situation.
A 200 bed, non-profit entity, Shanti Mukand Hospital faces a catastrophic crisis. The Hospital is facing a major shortage of staff and essential medical equipment such as oxygen cylinders, concentrators, ventilators, biopaps and Covid-19 toolkits. The lack of infrastructure has already resulted in SMH turning down almost 1000 patients in dire need of critical care during the last few days. Out of 25-30 patients waiting to be admitted every day, few can definitely be accommodated with a bit of resources support.
Amongst these hard trying times of the pandemic, we require your support to save human lives. We are aiming to raise Rs. 10 lakhs for the provision of medical supplies to Shanti Mukand Hospital. Your donations towards this fundraiser will contribute to the purchase of oxygen cylinders, concentrators, and essential toolkits. This will accentuate the never die spirit of SMH to provide sincere and honest care to the COVID needy.
