By bringing all of them on one platform an efficient team has been put together that works in tandem with the MP’s office to fulfill the oxygen requirements of covid affected patients by supplying them with oxygen concentrators.
The logistical aspect is taken care of by Peace auto and the concentrators are delivered to the doorstep, in exchange for a small refundable security deposit.
The MP also thanked Namma Bengaluru Foundation and Act India foundation for contributing and also thanked San Francisco-based Vasavi Seva foundation for contributing 150 small concentrators.
