– Aim To Provide Each Baug With 1 Oxygen Concentrator –
The most heart-wrenching news heard daily, in connection with the ongoing pandemic, is that scores of people are dying due to lack of availability of a hospital bed and OXYGEN, when needed urgently. The government is trying its best to meet this urgent need, but the present situation calls for some immediate action on our part too.
WAPIZ IS WORKING TO PROVIDE ONE OXYGEN CONCENTRATOR TO EACH AND EVERY BAUG IN MUMBAI CITY.
An oxygen concentrator is NOT an oxygen cylinder. It does not need monitoring or medical supervision when it is being used. But it helps the patient to breathe and to be comfortable till such time as a cylinder is sourced and/or a hospital bed is made available.
We need this facility in each of our baugs (almost 18 in number – BPP and Non BPP), where our elderly community members are particularly susceptible to the virus.
An oxygen concentrator is available presently for approximately Rs. 60,000/ – a piece.
We would like to inform that Karyesh and Sherry Patel have been working on this project and have been able to collect Rs. 5,00,000/- from generous donor – Mr. Darius Khambata for the cause. We appeal to philanthropic individuals and institutions to donate to this worthy cause, so that we can take this project further.
WAPIZ is trying its level best to procure these concentrators as there is an acute shortage for it. Wapiz has already placed its orders for the same and as soon we receive it, we will hand it over to the Baugs.
