COVID Oxygen Relief for Critical Patients

Donate for Oxygen Relief: 

During the 1st wave of Covid in India (April-September 2020), when India faced a crisis with millions of migrant labourers stuck without food or income to support their families, iVolunteer responded by providing immediate relief with 3 campaigns - a) distributing dry ration kits for 1,000,000+ meals in remote villages; b) 200,000 ready meals served to urban poor and those stuck in transit; and c) direct cash transfers of INR 20,000,000 to families who had lost income. iVolunteer leveraged its vast volunteer force, pan-India presence, and direct distribution supported by local community partners.

Covid 2nd wave in India
On April 22, India reported more than 300,000 new cases in a single day, the highest tally in the world since the pandemic began. The number has stayed above this limit consistently. This has resulted in an unprecedented burden on the medical infrastructure leading to a lack of life-saving equipment like oxygen cylinders and concentrators and ventilators. More than 2000 deaths are being reported each day. Further, this is spreading fast to small cities and remote regions. 

Oxygen - the missing medical support

Hospitals are scrambling to maintain oxygen supply, patients are being turned away due to lack of critical support, relatives are crying for support - images of these are all over the news, social media, and in personal stories of horror. Thousands have lost their loved ones to this growing crisis. There is a critical and immediate need for oxygen in hospitals and to directly support patients. 

Mission Oxygen - Covid Relief for IndiaiVolunteer COVID-2 Relief: 1 solution - Direct support, Transferable, Re-usable, Scalable!

Oxygen concentrators which use oxygen from the air and convert it to medical-grade oxygen. A patient in need of a concentrator needs to be on it for 5-7 days. Thereafter, the Concentrator can be passed to and re-used by another patient. Unlike Oxygen cylinders, these are not dependent on oxygen plants, transport delays, or heavy to manage. These are small pieces of equipment that are easy to set up. Oxygen concentrators enable trained medical professionals to administer oxygen to patients in waiting areas, in COVID Care centres, and in ambulances and community health centres. 

Cost of 1 Oxygen Concentrator: INR 75,000
(Costs are rising due to increased demand, but iVolunteer is working for bulk purchase from manufacturers and partnering with other agencies for competitive costs, quick supply, and reliable quality)
