A government-registered not-for-profit trust, Samarpana, based at Abiramapuram, is raising funds to help ease the bottlenecks in oxygen supply.
It is doing this with the help of the Dean and doctors of Rajiv Gandhi Government Hospital, Stanley Medical College and Thiruvallur Medical College and KMC.
Samarpana has been promoting the campaign at #helpchennaibreathe for this fundraiser.
“We have identified vendors and estimated a cost of Rs.3 crores to procure these materials.
We have been able to collect Rs. 25 lakhs in a matter of 3 days,” says Gayathri
Suryanarayanan, founder, Samarpana.
She says she intends to source 420 oxygen cylinders with regulators and trolleys, 240 oxygen concentrators and 500 oxygen masks, NRBM masks and nasal prongs.
Gayathri is a classical dancer as well as a digital marketing professional.
