Till now, we have effectively distributed around 350 plus concentrators to needy patients at their doorstep. We are providing this assistance only in the capital for now but we want to expand our outreach to other worst-affected cities as well.

Our goal is to procure around 5000 concentrators so that other cities are assisted too. We have a strong base of volunteers across the country who will carry out the relief project. In this, we require your kind support to expand our outreach. We request you to consider this and collaborate as it is through collective efforts only that maximum patients can be assisted and this surge can be dealt with.
