Fundraiser aims to minimise oxygen shortage and provide better protective equipment to hospitals
Students and alumni of several international varsities, including University of Pennsylvania, Stanford University, Harvard University, Columbia University, and Cornell University, have started student-led fundraisers to pool in funds and send to organisations working for COVID-19 relief in India.
Launched last week, the fundraiser aims at minimising oxygen shortage and providing better protective equipment and other medical supplies to healthcare workers fighting amid the COVID-19 spike in India.
The initiative is helping students with queries and doubts in filing applications, selection of schools and university interviews in exchange of donation to the India-based organisations.
COVID-19 relief foundations authorised to supply equipment to hospitals and COVID-19 care centres are being supported by the initiative. The funds are being used to provide oxygen cylinders, oximeters, and food to the patients.
The fundraiser has witnessed students from 20 different universities including Stanford, Carnegie Mellon University, Georgetown, MIT, Northwestern University, Tufts, and the University of Pittsburgh jointly participate in collecting relief funds.
