As I am sure most of you are aware, India is in the midst of a medical crisis. Hospitals are overwhelmed, oxygen is running out and the death toll is climbing rapidly.
After speaking to many of my relatives in India on Whatsapp, I strongly felt that we had to do whatever we could to help.
That is why we have set up a GoFundMe page for Help India Breathe.
By donating whatever amount you can spare, you will be helping to fund medical equipment, food and other vital supplies for a country in crisis.
As many of our clients have family and friends in India, I know this will be close to many people’s hearts and we are hoping to be able to raise enough to make a real difference and prevent as many needless deaths as possible.
We have strong connections in India to ensure that the funds are managed appropriately and where they will make the most difference.
Help us send oxygen to India
All funds raised in the UK will be used to purchase equipment such as Oxygen and related equipment in the UK. No money is being sent to India, the equipment is shipped direct to the NGO’s in India.
We are identifying small local charities and NGO’s that are requiring oxygen equipment – NOT large organisations and charities which have layers of admin and bureaucracy.
Donate now to Help India Breathe
All of this means that no funds leave the UK and also ensures that the people who need the oxygen equipment get it as quickly as possible.
Much of the news has been focused on the main cities of Delhi and Mumbai, but as my cousin in Mumbai told me, it’s the smaller towns and villages with little infrastructure that really need help.
Sadly, this is just the beginning, and is a crisis that won’t disappear quickly. India cannot be isolated, and they need our help.
Please donate and help where you can – Thank you!
