  • Dear all

    As you all might know India is going through the worst COVID crisis with a daily number of cases over 300,000 and numerous deaths. There is acute shortage of hospital beds in the entire country. The crisis is unprecedented (Covid: India sets another infection record as US shows concern - BBC News and https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-india-56771766)

    In the last 48 hours more and more hospitals are reporting shortages in medical Oxygen and the crisis is grave (https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-56870410). This is a call for action to lend a helping hand in a small way. Women of Compassion International (WOCI) is a US based registered 501c3 charitable organization (EIN is 83-1470727) which is involved with women's upliftment through education, job training, medical care, mental health care, food, and shelter. WOCI has formed a "COVID India response" project and is soliciting donations. 

    WOCI is working with UNICORPUS health foundation, an Indian based not for profit organization, to establish an urgent COVID center in Hyderabad. Unicorpus Health Foundation (UHF- https://unicorpus.org/# ) is a not for Profit  (80 G Tax exemption) organization established by a group of 9 health care professionals who were keen on providing affordable, ethical, evidence based, compassionate and holistic medical care in Hyderabad (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WJiJgS1_YVA). They mainly focus on geriatric services with an outpatient clinic in the city center and a 30 bedded Unicorpus -word and deed community hospital in the suburb (https://youtu.be/qtKU2dTB93M). During the COVID crisis they have been running a successful COVID home isolation program. However, with the growing numbers and lack of hospital beds they would like to urgently convert their community hospital into a COVID unit. There is an urgent need for equipment including ventilators, CPAP, BiPAP machines, Oxygen Concentrators, High Flow Oxygen systems etc. 

    WOCI is soliciting donations towards the same.
