Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], April 24 (ANI/NewsVoir): Our country is battling with the second wave of COVID-19 and our hospitals are going through dire situations. Hospitals urgently need more oxygen cylinders and concentrators to save as many lives as possible.

Democracy People Foundation started a self-funded mission to help hospitals across the country get immediate access to oxygen concentrators. The foundation assumed a requirement of 100 pieces that they could manage. However, within a few hours, the foundation received the request for over 3000 oxygen concentrators. The initial requirement is listed below:

"We have managed to procure 500 concentrators from China, which will be shipped on Monday for India and we will be able to supply them to the hospitals earliest by Wednesday. Initially we self-funded approximately 50 Lacs for this initiative and placed an order for 100 concentrators. However, to process the order for the remaining 400 concentrators by Monday we need another Rs 2.5 Crore and we decided to embrace the power of the crowd and started a fundraiser on Ketto.org," said Rahul Aggarwal, Founder Democracy People Foundation, while commenting on the fundraiser.

The campaign went live on Friday night (April 23, 2021). Within 17 hours the campaign raised over Rs 1.70 crore from over 1400 donors.

"This is a non-for-profit and charitable initiative. We urge people to come forward and generously donate to the cause. Every bit will go a long way in saving lives," added Rahul Aggarwal.
