    This fundraiser will benefit

    Government College in Haldwani

    from Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh


We are Vir Bhatia and Varyam Gupta and we are raising funds for Madhav Bahadur for helping the Government Medical College in Haldwani. We are working with the Doon School Old Boys Society to provide them with these funds which will enable them to supply the PPE kits to Haldwani. 
Dr. Madhav made the following request and we hope you will help us in complying to his needs as soon as possible. 

Hi, I am Madhav Bahadur, 153 K, 2009. I am a doctor, working as a junior resident, in Government Medical College, Haldwani. Ours is a designated COVID-19 hospital with 400 beds and 50 ventilated ICU beds. We are treating critically ill patients and there is a critical dearth of personal protection equipment (PPE kit), which consists of a head cap, goggles, N 95 mask, bodysuit, shoe covers, and gloves. Currently, we have only 2 PPE kits remaining. We have been doing procedures that produce aerosols wearing just surgical gowns and masks, which are ineffective in preventing transmission of the corona particles to us. We are working at very bad odds and as everyone knows a person can transmit the infection in the asymptomatic period. So, we could effectively be sources of infection to our patients. We require at least 30 PPE kits a day, although, ideally about 500 kits as estimated by the hospital administration, when the hospital will be in full swing. Discos have always been a responsible community. I would like to request the DSOBS and the community to once again step up and help us. Thanking you, Yours, Madhav 153K, 2009.
