Dear friends, After spending some time searching for the right organization to donate to, I am thrilled to be partnering with my friends at Kolkata Society for Cultural Heritage, http://ksch.org.in/, to raise funds for 100 oxygen cylinders.
The organization has a proven track record of supporting rural Bengal and have a solid plan of action for COVID relief in the city. Funds raised will be used to procure 100 47-liter O2 cylinders @ Rs. 30,000/unit . They have already created 3 dedicated helplines (24-hr) to receive requests for O2, 24 volunteers have been allocated to receive orders and deliver cylinders. They have also partnered with a factory to refill the cylinders free of cost and redistribute. Therefore after the initial cost of buying the cylinders, this project is self-perpetuating.
West Bengal on Monday logged 8,426 new Covid-19 cases and 38 deaths linked to the virus. Kolkata witnessed its highest one-day spike with 2,211 cases followed by 1,801 in North 24 Parganas.
