Free medical assistance for financially weak individuals
Alumni of Jesuit educational institutions in India, along with philanthropic organisations, corporate houses and individuals, have set up a 100-bed COVID care centre at St Joseph’s College Bangalore.
The group is working under the banner of Karnataka Covid Jeevan Anmol and is working to get the care centre operational in a few days.
The alumni group is aiming to help asymptomatic and mildly symptomatic patients and helping them get admitted to hospitals if the need arises.
The group is accepting medical relief material, including oxygen cylinders, concentrators, pulse oximeters, PPE kits and N-95 masks, at the college in Shantinagar.
All medical assistance and support will be offered free to those with limited financial means. The group has already been arranging for beds, oxygen and ventilator support for needy patients through their network of volunteers comprising engineers, doctors and other working professionals across the city.
During the first wave of COVID-19 last year, various Jesuit Institutions had collaborated with several benefactors to ensure that dry ration and relief materials were delivered to more than 1,20,000 underprivileged families in Karnataka.
