With over 400K cases per day, India's current COVID surge is beyond heartbreaking. India is relentlessly trying to fight the situation, with the aid of other countries, but sadly, it's taking too long and there aren’t enough oxygen concentrators for everyone, which leaves people gasping for air. Pushkar’s hospital is deeply affected by this and has requested aid in sourcing this specific oxygen concentrator.
The cost for one machine is approximately €1150, and we are hoping to be able to provide them with as many as possible with your help. We will make sure to deliver the oxygen machines to Pushkar's hospital via UPS & our off-shore employees AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE. We feel the urge to take immediate action instead of waiting on the government's supply, which in some cases can be critical.
India is a gigantic place and we don't have the power to help everywhere, but hopefully, we can make a difference locally, in Pushkar.
The Covid-19 situation is also having its toll on local families in India who don’t have enough access to essential food supplies. We work closely with theFior Di Loto Foundation based in Pushkar, India, which is focused on helping local families by providing them with food packs.
In order to support their cause in extreme times like this we are doubling our donation to the Fior Di Loto Foundation. This means that 20% of all proceeds go directly to the charity.
For every €9 raised we can provide a nutritious food pack that feeds an entire family.
Here’s what’s inside:
10KG Chapati flour
1KG Rice / 2KG Corn Flour Package
You can also donate directly to the Fior Di Loto Foundation through their website.
The whole world is united in helping India right now and there are lots of other charities that you can donate to:OXYGEN FOR INDIA: setting up help desks at various hospitals to ensure that people get access to oxygen cylinders and concentrators for free. You can donate here.
