Your generous contribution thus far meant that we bumped our target from 200 to 400 Oxygen Concentrators yesterday. Your contributions did NOT stop even after reaching funding targets. And helped us to bump up our targets to 600 units.

We just finished our negotiations for supply of 600 Oxygen Concentrators from various distributors. The medical team working with us has identified some other essential components that should be tagged along with Oxygen Concentrators. More on the complete package tomorrow.

The distributors are working fervently with Thursday deadline. Thereafter, our shipment lifts off from London to India.

We'll keep you updated on our daily progress.

The call-for-funding is still open. We have NOT stopped on our end

* * * UPDATE: 12 hours * * *

- Our initial outrageous plan was to secure fund to procure ~200 Oxygen Concentrators. Together, we'll overshoot that outrageous goal.
- Tomorrow, we've an important day of negotiations and finalization with the distributors. Wish us the best of luck
- We've secured the necessary approvals to ship this to India. That is a big sigh of relief
- This stock will be handed over directly to Ministry of Health for further distribution through ICMR/Red Cross.

OVERVIEW
The second wave of Covid19 has hit India hard and at a lightning speed resulting into medical infrastructure unable to cope.

One of the major bottlenecks has been O2 supply. While India is trying hard to ramp up O2 supply, the demand has been unprecedented.

Most of the major industrial plants have diverted their O2 supply towards meeting this demand but are unable to meet.

Since lack of oxygen supply has been a limiting factor, we would like to contribute as many O2 Concetrators as we can procure from various sellers and send it to India to aid in recovery and ease the burden on already stretched resources.

O2 concentrators need just a 220V power supply to purify oxygen from ambient air by filtering out nitrogen.

Every contribution no matter how big or small counts.

Time is of essence and we would like to raise these funds by Monday morning UK time to ensure that we can get hold of all supplies that are available.

We have 24 hours to secure stock and must place the order as soon as possible as stocks are running low everywhere,
