In the past few months, AGADA has been working towards providing essentials to the underprivileged people of Coimbatore and Nilgiris districts in India that could potentially benefit about 424,000 people. Due to the nationwide lockdown, we have been actively carrying out our services since August 2020. During this short period, we have donated food, clothes, face masks, and grocery items to orphanages, care homes, and rural areas benefitting a total of about 20,000 people.
To take our objective a step further, we have begun a crowdfunding campaign to raise Rs. 200,000 for the COVID Relief.
COVID-19 cases in Coimbatore and Nilgiris have shot up, with over 12,592 active cases at present. Due to the rapid increase in cases, public hospitals and care centers have been running short of medical supplies like oxygen concentrators and ventilators. Hence, the fatality rate has increased drastically by 80% since the month of April. While private hospitals are privileged enough to source medical supplies easily by charging patients, public hospitals have suffered in providing proper treatment due to the lack of oxygen cylinders and necessary medical supplies.
AGADA believes it is our duty to do our part in helping these hospitals with oxygen concentrators and the necessary medical supplies. With your help and support, we can save thousands of lives in our fight against COVID-19 at this great hour of need. With the funds raised for this cause, we're planning on sourcing oxygen concentrators and ventilators and donating them directly to public hospitals in Coimbatore and the Nilgiris.
We're working hard to meet our objective of transforming lives. But we can’t do that without you. Join us in helping millions with your generosity.
