A nursery parent has contacted us with details of the following campaign being led through Morgan Stanley, supporting British Asian Trust to get oxygen concentrators (a device that recycles oxygen from air rather than relying on oxygen tanks) amongst other medical equipment and PPE to hospitals. Further details and campaign website can be found below. Morgan Stanley is matching contributions to double the impact but people can choose to contribute directly to British Asian Trust as well.
Over the last few weeks, the rate of COVID-19 infections in India has hit critical numbers, putting a strain on resources, the healthcare infrastructure and medical community.
Via the British Asian Trust we will be supporting Goonj, a disaster relief and humanitarian aid charity, to provide healthcare support ranging from medicines, health kits for COVID care, PPE and testing kits as well as hunger relief programs within communities across India.
Funds will also be used for the British Asian Trust partner Swasth to get oxygen concentrators to hospitals as quickly as possible. Oxygen concentrators are alternate devices to oxygen cylinders while cylinders contain a finite amount of oxygen supply, a concentrator continually recycles oxygen from the air and delivers it to the patient.
100% of your donation will be received by organisations delivering support on the ground in India.
