Dasvandh Network and Khalsa Aid have partnered to track down much needed medical equipment – particularly oxygenators that help patients breathe. So far, 600 devices have been located to provide much-needed assistance in India.
So far, $220,000 have been raised through the Dasvandh Network crowdfunding network. All donations are tax-exempt in the United States. Donors who donate with the code “AID” will be able to get their donation matched automatically.
In a press statement, Mandeep Singh of Dasvandh Network said, “the news coming out from India related to COVID-19 is devastating. The infrastructure and resources are simply not in place to handle the sheer number of cases that arise. We’re hearing from those on the ground that the situation is only getting worse. The Khalsa Aid India team is working hard to help however they can to meet the new needs on the ground.”
He added, “We are working with Khalsa Aid to get them shipped to India immediately by air. The Khalsa Aid team will then make sure to distribute this equipment to people who need it the most. These devices will hopefully go on to save hundreds, if not thousands of lives, as the situation darkens.”
