As you know, India is going through a major health crisis & heartbroken times due to COVID-19 raging in several parts of the country. India has recorded the highest one-day tally of new COVID-19 cases and deaths anywhere in the world, with the National Capital Region of Delhi being the most drastically affected. There is an acute shortage of Oxygen in Delhi, with several hospitals running out of Oxygen entirely during the third week of April. Hospitals are turning away patients and ambulances are waiting in lines for hours in front of hospitals. In this dire need of healthcare essentials for the masses, CapitalIIT is joining hands with WHEELS Global Foundation to come up with a multi-pronged approach to help our fellow citizens in India.
We plan on sending 200 Oxygen Concentrators (OC) to Delhi, India by the end of this month in collaboration with multiple Philanthropic partners including Adharshila in India. We expect to save about 1000 lives in a month with this first batch of 200 OCs. If you want to make a difference, now is the time!
You can make a tax deductible donation to WHEELS Global Foundation (a 501c3 organization), started by IIT Alumni in the USA. We need these funds ASAP so that we can have OCs shipped to India by the end of this month.
