Fight against Covid-19
Let's together make a difference back at home
The shortage of this lifesaving medical supply and a steep rise in new variants of COVID-19 have resulted in a death rate that has grown 2,000 percent in two months. Spandana Foundation is responding urgently and we need your help to help the needy back at home. Please donate today.
To reverse India’s tragic, exponential growth in COVID-19 mortality, we must move quickly, with flexible funding, to secure more medical oxygen for the facilities that desperately need it. Spandana India team is supporting the response, helping to locate and procure oxygen supplies, and accelerating COVID testing and surveillance with the help of local health care professionals and facilities.
Please make a gift today and help get oxygen where it's needed.
Who benefits from your donation?
When you make a donation to the Spandana Fight against Covid-19 relief fund, you financially support individuals impacted by the pandemic and organizations coordinating relief efforts. With your help, we can provide aid during this difficult time to those who need it most. For the first time, Spandana Foundation decided to distribute aid to all those who are in need of health care irrespective of their financial status.
How/whom do you distribute the aid?
Whom is very clear. All the oxygen concentrators will be distributed for free to individuals and facilities who are willing to treat patients for free irrespective of their financial status and affiliation (private or Government). The plan is to donate all the oxygen concentrators to local public health care centers once this craziness over.
Spandana Foundation has been motivating Non-Resident Indians (NRI) to do social responsibility activities for the past 17 years. Our model is simple: YOUR SCHOOL ... YOUR VILLAGE ... OUR SPANDANA FOUNDATION
We would like to apply the same model for this project also. We request all of you to create your own fundraiser page to raise funds for this cause and make use of the funds in your own villages to support the needy.
Spandana Foundation placed orders for different types of oxygen concentrators with different vendors.
Type-1: 1L-5L type, works efficiently when operated at 1L. For home use only. These are suitable for pre-covid and post-covid patients with mild breathing issues. These concentrators are capable to input 90% plus oxygen only at 1L and oxygen concentration goes down when operated at 2L-5L As per health care professionals, these kind of machines will cover around 35% of patients.
Type-2: 5L type, works efficiently at all capacity levels from 1L-5L. For home and hospital use. These are suitable for most of the Covid patients. Not suitable for serious Covid patients admitted in ICU. As per health care professionals, these kind of machines will cover around 80% of patients.
Type-3: 10L type, works efficiently at all capacity levels from 1L-10L. For hospital use only. These are suitable for most of the Covid patients. As per health care professionals, these kind of machines will cover almost all the patients with some exceptions and this could be used for multiple patients at a time.
