As the number of Corona virus occurrences in various regions of the country remains high, Bajaj Foundation, a non-profit organisation, launched an emergency oxygen initiative that provides free doorstep delivery of oxygen concentrators across Delhi-NCR and has already saved many lives throughout the national capital.
As part of the emergency, if the Spo2 falls below 93, the service will provide O2 at everyone’s doorstep for free for 120 hours in exchange for a refundable security deposit.
Speaking about the program, Pankaj Bajaj, Founder of Bajaj Foundation said, “We at Bajaj Foundation firmly believe in one world, one family and are committed to helping mankind. We believe that each one of us has the power and role to play in overcoming this emergency. We are stronger together when we work jointly like one family. Through our efforts, we not only hope to help the affected people but are also trying to mitigate the spread of the virus through initiatives such as the doorstep Emergency Oxygen program which assists people in staying indoors. It’s 2021 and we are still struggling with basic amenities, so it would be reasonable to say that it’s time to stand together and help humanity in the best way possible.”
As of now, the Bajaj Foundation has served over 1 lakh prepared meals and provided rations, oxygen concentrators, and oxygen cylinders. They have also assisted in the distribution of thousands of masks, sanitizers, and confectioneries for children, as well as food for dogs, cats, and cows. Free meals are now being made and served on a regular basis at Taste Sutra and Khoya Mithai Kitchen.
Additionally, the Bajaj Foundation has sent supplies such as oxygen concentrators, medications, rations, and other pet care items to the state of Goa, which has been devastated by Cyclone Tauktae and the COVID-19 epidemic.
