Help India Breathe

India is facing a catastrophic second wave of Covid-19. This is a tragedy like no other.  There is an acute shortage of hospital beds with assisted breathing equipment and ICU ventilators.
 
Help India Breathe is an initiative started with colleagues here in the UK. Many of us work in the technology sector and have watched helplessly over the last few weeks as the Pandemic hit this vibrant country. 

We have one simple aim - mobilise effective hi-tech emergency Covid-19 supplies on a NOT FOR PROFIT basis to hospitals involved in the care of covid-19 patients starting with assisted breathing devices developed during the UK Ventilator Challenge and open source innovation by like-minded not for profit colleagues. 

Use of Funds:
We are fundraising to provide essential  assisted breathing devices  to communities across India that have been impacted by this crisis. We have partnered with Janvikas - www.janvikas.in . The amazing team at Janvikas led by the inimitable Kirti Joshi would be in charge of on- ground deployment and training of medical and paramedic staff. The team are already doing exceptional work for Covid-19 relief for communities across India. They share our guiding principle of helping those most in need irrespective of economic or social strata or location. Any charity/govt. hospital/community health centre and covid facility is free to contact Janvikas to access these resources.

Our ambition is to also work with ICU Ventilator partners starting with the Boston based team behind The Ventilator Project. https://theventilatorproject.org/

We are planning to run a follow-up campaign to source these ICU Ventilators. 

I am  grateful for your time and donation on behalf of doctors, paramedics and the myriad families fighting this awful illness . Please find more information about how your support will help India Breathe at  www.helpindiabreathe.org
