At the onset of the pandemic last year, when hospitals were facing a dire need for protective gear and equipment, we at GiveIndia had responded in record time to stand strong beside our saviours, our healthcare heroes. And we were able to fill the gap by raising ₹28+ lakhs through this mission and helped those who were risking their lives to save ours.
As reported on April 22, India crossed the 3 lakh mark of new single-day cases, the highest tally in the world since the pandemic began. This increasing burden of COVID positive patients, 2,000+ recorded fatalities per day, lack of life-saving equipment like oxygen cylinders and concentrators, ventilators and Bipaps is crippling our healthcare infrastructure.
Oxygen supply - the need of the hour
The image of many patient families crying and crowding outside hospitals desperate to get urgent medical help for their kith and kin is etched in our memories. Thousands have lost their loved ones to this growing crisis. There is a critical and immediate need for oxygen in hospitals and COVID Care Centres that our NGOs across the country have been registering with us. In response to this, we are relaunching our health mission to support critical patients by:
Providing life-saving equipment:
Join the mission to support critical COVID patients, charitable hospitals and COVID Care Centres. Your contribution will help them fight COVID safely and more effectively.
GiveIndia will partner with Municipal Corporations, State Health Ministry, hospitals and doctors and key NGO networks, who have been authorized to supply equipment to charitable hospitals and COVID Care Centres.
Funds are disbursed only after GiveIndia’s strict due diligence framework of verifying all demand and supply channels are completed.
GiveIndia will share regular updates of disbursements and impact in the On Ground Updates section, below.
