COVID: Indian American NGO to build 100 oxygen plants in India


(Our Bureau, May 31) Indian American NGO Sewa International is crowdfunding the installation of 100 oxygen generation plants in hospitals across India to help them face a possible third wave of the pandemic. Purchase orders have already been placed for 15 plants that will be set up in the next 8-12 weeks at a cost of about $1.8 million, the Houston-based non-profit said in a press statement. “The primary target for installing these oxygen generation plants are charitable hospitals in rural and tribal areas and hospitals in 2nd and 3rd tier cities,” said Mukund Kute, Project Manager. The first 15 plants can support about 20-40 ICU beds. Earlier Sewa had raised $7 million from its Facebook campaign towards Covid-19 relief efforts in India.
