UK Charity, Go Dharmic has raised over £160K in the last week, to provide oxygen to India to aid the medical emergency that is worsening due to an acute lack of oxygen supplies. The charity’s volunteers have been risking their own lives, in order to deliver these supplies 24 hrs a day, to those most in need in India’s Covid crisis. Go Dharmic seeks to raise £200k by the end of the week for this campaign to save lives in India.
In Mohali, Punjab, Larice Gabba, Go Dharmic head managed to supply a hundreds of oxygen cylinders and deliver them immediately to stressed hospitals and desperate families requiring assistance. 'These oxygen supplies are literally saving lives as hospitals are turning away people due to the lack of oxygen.'
In Delhi the GD team are now building a temporary hospital with 30 beds with oxygen cylinders and 6 ventilators; while in Kolkata they have been building hospital capacity which will give 100 new beds and 100 cylinders of Oxygen. Not only sourcing in India, orders for 50 oxygen concentrators are being dispatched from the UK.
