India is suffering from the second wave of coronavirus and the situation in the country is deteriorating day by day. The Health system is crashing down as hospitals lack vaccines, beds, and oxygen supply. The national capital Delhi is suffering the most as many patients are dying daily due to a shortage of oxygen.
Amid this unprecedented crisis, Khalsa Aid has come forward to provide help to the country. The U.K.-based charity organization has reached out to help Covid patients in Delhi by arranging oxygen concentrators.
Khalsa Aid announced this on Twitter, “In this unprecedented state of a medical emergency, we have fortunately managed to arrange limited Oxygen concentrator for Covid19 patients. This project will be initiated from Delhi as it is the worst affected city.”
“Together, we will fight this situation” Khalsa Aid comforted.
The Khalsa Aid said that to avail the service people would have to fill up a registration form. Patients that have low saturation levels would be given priority and the oxygen concentrators would be delivered in all parts of Delhi.
The director of Khalsa Aid Project, Amarpreet Singh said, “There is a huge gap between the demand and supply of oxygen, we want to play a minuscule part to bridge that gap. Though our effort is like a drop of water in an ocean, it was much needed. We were getting requests for oxygen so we managed to procure concentrators for the needy underprivileged patients.”
Till now the organization has procured 65 oxygen concentrators and said it will provide more in the coming weeks taking the number to 100. One oxygen concentrator costs Rs 60,000 and onwards in the market.
