Sewa International has started a
fundraising campaign to build 100 oxygen generation plants in hospitals
located in the rural and tribal areas and second and third tier cities
across India to ease oxygen scarcity in the country. Sewa has already
placed orders for 15 oxygen generation plants to be set up in the next
8-12 weeks at a cost of about $1.8 million.
donation of $61,000, $81,000 or $121,000 can help establish one such
oxygen plant of a desired size. The campaign will help distribute
oxygen generation capability equitably to different parts of the country
bridging the urban and rural divide in India’s healthcare sector. This
initiative will help India prepare to face future challenges more
identified three vendors from India to supply machinery required to
build these plants. The first 15 plants will be a mix of 250 LPM and 500
LPM capacity. One 500 LPM plant can support a 200-bed hospital with 40
ICU beds or can produce 110 cylinders of oxygen a day. Sewa’s team of
experts will assist selected hospitals in seeking permits, setting up
electrical systems, pipelines, etc., to install and operate such plants
quickly and efficiently.
Your generous support in the past has helped Sewa carry out relief and development work around the world. Our goal is to raise $11 million for the oxygen plants and your support can be potentially lifesaving to a village or a town in India.
