Provide oxygen to help India breathe again

As reported on April 25, India crossed the 350,000 mark of new single-day cases, the highest tally in the world since the pandemic began. This has resulted in an acute shortage of life-saving equipment such as oxygen cylinders and concentrators, ventilators and Bipaps.

Deutsche Bank has put in place a programme to help address this healthcare crisis as part of our Corporate Social Responsibility commitment. Employees who wish to show their support for India can donate to this fundraising campaign to meet the critical and immediate need for oxygen and medical equipment in hospitals and COVID Care Centres. Your contributions will be used by the GiveIndia Foundation to:

  • Set up oxygen generation plants in hospitals/COVID facility compounds in Delhi, Bangalore, Mumbai and Patna. A 5,000-litre capacity plant costs ₹6cr and can support 650 people per day.
  • Provide oxygen concentrators which use oxygen from the air and convert it to medical grade oxygen. A patient in need of a concentrator needs to be on it for 5-7 days. One oxygen concentrator costs ₹55,000.
  • Provide oxygen cylinders that help a person in need of oxygen support for 5-7 days. The B-type (1,500L) oxygen cylinder costs ₹15,000 while the D-type (6,000L) costs ₹25,000.
  • Refill oxygen cylinders, as manufacture is restricted to certain states and transporting oxygen cylinders from one state to another requires specific vehicles which are not very widely available in the given situation. Refilling A B-type cylinder costs ₹800/refill and D-type costs ₹2,500/refill.
  • Providing life-saving equipment:
    • Bipaps, also known as non-invasive ventilation. One Bipap costs approximately ₹60,000.
    • Ventilators which are priced at ₹5 lakh per item.

Join the mission to support critical COVID patients, charitable hospitals and COVID Care Centres. Your contribution will help them fight COVID safely and more effectively.

Process

GiveIndia will partner with Municipal Corporations, State Health Ministry, hospitals and doctors and key NGO networks, who have been authorized to supply equipment to charitable hospitals and COVID Care Centres.
