Jaisalmer Fights Covid

I Love Jaisalmer came forward supporting the Jaisalmer region in its fight against covid.

Jaisalmer region spans over 39,000 sq km and has a scattered population. With the onset of the Covid-19 second wave, the region was in urgent need of oxygen to treat the alarming rise of critical cases. Every third person was testing positive and the rural health facility was inadequate. We initiated a campaign providing immediate covid relief aid to the people.

What did we do?

We procured and distributed oxygen concentrators and oxygen cylinders through our ecosystem and with the immediate support of other organizations. Within 30 days, our initiative ‘Jaisalmer Fights Covid’ has managed to extend help to over 500 villages. We reached out to 41 health centers spread over a 150 km radius across the Jaisalmer District.

OXYGEN CONCENTRATORS

So far, 69 oxygen concentrators have been sent to 43 remote locations of Jaisalmer district and other parts of Rajasthan where they were required the most.

OXYGEN PLANT
