Global Schools Foundation has extended help of more than 500 oxygen concentrators to remote regions of India – including Maharashtra – for Covid-19 affected patients, as a timely gesture to help the nation deal with the medical crises in the country.
These life-saving equipment are in addition to the first shipment of 200 oxygen cylinders sent on an urgent basis as part of a larger consignment onboard the Indian Navy warship Airavat to aid in transportation of medical oxygen and other supplies. The cylinders were put onboard the navy warship sent as part of Operation Samudra Setu 2 to pick medical equipment from South Asian and South East Asian countries.
Global Schools Foundation reached out to Sewa International – a huge network of social initiatives across India – to tap their deep local resources and get these oxygen concentrators to the small towns and villages deep inside the huge country. They will be despatched in batches. Through Sewa International, the concentrators will reach locations where Covid-19 patients are in urgent need of medical help.
