Dear all,

My name is Akash and I am an Indian national lucky enough to be safe and sound in Singapore, at a time when India is facing the worst covid outbreak in the world. To be a part of the solution, my fiance Samantha ( who is based in India) and I request your kindness to purchase 8-10 oxygen concentrators. These concentrators cost between SGD 1700-1900 each.

This request is to support remote forest communities and government staff, living in the jungle and protecting its wildlife. We will be purchasing these concentrators and shipping them directly to the Earth Brigade Foundation, who has been receiving these requests and will be sending it to the locations in urgent need.

To assure you that this is not a scam, here is my LinkedIn - you can verify who I am here- or send me a direct message through this platform. Further we will account for your contributions by updating the campaign with details of invoices, letters of acknowledgment from the recipients, on a best efforts basis. I have added screenshots of the contribution Samantha and I personally made earlier.
