Save Lives in Rural India  (Covid -19) 

Track progress here 

India is in deep crisis as we all know. Almost every household is affected by COVID-19 and health systems are overwhelmed beyond capacity resulting in avoidable mortalities.

We are trying to mobilize medical equipment to supplement the limited resources currently available in India.

Our current focus is on the Mithila region (including Terai of Nepal) where medical infrastructure needs maximum support.

This is our first call to help with shipment of the following to Darbhanga where several areas have been sealed due to high infection rate.  Our communication with the local administration have revealed acute and urgent need of the following:

1.       Oxygen flow meters
2.       Oxygen cylinders (D type)
3.       Oxygen concentrators
4.       Pulse oximeter and sensor-based sanitizing machines
5.       PSA (Pressure Swing Adsorption) oxygen generation plants

We will reach out to other areas as we progress. We believe each of us can help India in these critical times.

100%  of funds received will be used to help affected areas in India and Nepal, starting with Mithila. We are committed to sharing  details of fund utilization with full transparency and accountability. We will post regular updates  on this page including details of equipment sent and address of recipients.

FUNDS WITHDRAWAL PLAN

The funds will be transferred to India using one of the organizers personal bank account (Indu Das) here at US and in India . This will ensure that money is transferred quickly at the best available exchange rate and also with already existing online banking features associated with the account we are able to upload all required documents to the site.

Since its very difficult to find a supplier who work on credit for these life-saving and rare supplies,  we will keep looking for volunteers who can pay the suppliers immediately, procure the supplies  quickly and then will reimburse those volunteers. All the expenses along with receipts will be uploaded promptly on this site as well as our main site (https://www.onesmallvillage.org) ..
