India is battling a devastating second wave of Coronavirus. Case numbers and deaths are rising fast due to a new variant. Ambulances are being turned away from hospitals because of supply shortages.
A steady supply of Oxygen is vital to supporting patients fighting this illness. In many cases, an oxygen tank can be the difference between living and dying.
Heartbreakingly, India is facing an acute oxygen shortage. According to PATH Oxygen Needs Tracker, the country now has the greatest demand for oxygen out of all other low, lower-middle, and upper-middle-income countries.
As India battles this devastating second wave of Coronavirus hospitals are appealing for help to buy life-saving oxygen generating equipment. We are working with Kachhwa Christian Hospital, near Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh to support them in getting this vital kit. Any contribution you can make will get this hospital one step closer to buying this life-saving equipment.
Feed The Hungry have already procured 23 ventilators to send out to hospitals in Delhi, India and also in Nepal. Please stand with us as we seek to support those struggling in South Asia at this time.
