Utsav has partnered with Bay Area Prabasi in a joint effort for Project Breathe.
What is Project Breathe?
Today, India is fighting against the ferocious second wave of the Pandemic. The picture in Kolkata and other parts of West Bengal looks grim, where every second person is testing positive for Covid-19. We have a shortage of beds, medical devices, and oxygen units.
Several Non-Profit Bengali Community organizations in the United States have formed a consortium to raise funds for our people back home and partnering with Kolkata based NGOs.
Mukti and Rural Health Care Foundation (RHCF) to extend our support by sending in Oxygen concentrators and oximeters and saving precious lives. As a part of this consortium, we are reaching out to you to request your kind support to help the people in Kolkata and other parts of West Bengal gasping for air.
● Procure 1000 high-quality ISO certified Oxygen concentrators + 5,000 pulse oximeters and ship to Kolkata (Concentrator units procured @$600/per unit)
● Create a first responder center for at-home delivery of Oxygen concentrators (to reduce pressure on hospitals at maximum capacity)
