As this campaign ends today, this will be my last update. Almost 500 oxygen concentrators have been sent to India, and our colleagues there are continuing to work hard, to identify cities where the authorities are ready to accept beds and concentrators, ready to support with medical personnel and medicines, and to start admitting patients and helping them to overcome the virus. It is a long and arduous journey, and we wish them faith, stamina and strength. The 40 bed facility at Yamunanagar was formally inaugurated yesterday.
Meanwhile we at Bridges Singapore, standby ready to provide whatever help we can.
And a FINAL THANKYOU to all of you for your generosity, care and concern.
As we ship out oxygen concentrators to India, their quick deployment becomes extremely important to help save lives. A 50 bed facility has been set up in Panchkula, equipped with these oxygen concentrators. The Honourable Chief Minister of Haryana, Shri Gyan Chand Gupta inaugurated the facility yesterday as Haryana government took over and started operating with doctors, nurses and medication.
Another 30 bed facility is being set up in Karnal, fully equipped with Oxygen Concentrators for handing over to the Haryana government.
Discussions are ongoing also with other State organisations where Oxygen Concentrators can be immediately deployed and administered to patients under the supervision of qualified medical professionals. We will continue to update you regularly.
Meanwhile we are procuring about 300 more Oxygen Concentrators and need your contributions to continue coming in. Thanks for your amazing support.
Fantastic response has been received for this humane venture. Over 17% collected the first day.
Please inform your friends to keep the funds coming. The more we receive, the more equipment we will send. Every cent will be spent on sending oxygen concentrators, buying from the factory, flying them to Delhi, clearing from the airport, and paying the taxes applicable.
