*Please join our fight against the corona virus with a donation towards our COVID-19 hospital in Bathalapalli (Andhra Pradesh, India)!

The corona pandemic hit India - a country with more than 1.3 billion people - particularly hard. The second COVID-19 wave is currently reaching dramatic highs with up to 400,000 new infections daily.

Disadvantaged communities are affected disproportinately from the corona pandemic as they oftentimes do not have access to adequate sanitary facilities or a medical care facilities.

In our hospital in Bathalapalli (in the southeast of India) we provide health care for the people living in the rural area. In April 2021 it was appointed as an exclusive COVID-19 health care center. Currently over 450 medical professionals are treating COVID-19 patients in the hospital. It has a capacity of 245 beds of which 213 have oxygen supply.

Many patients between the age of 30 and 50 have severe symptoms that require an artificial respiration with medical oxygen.

The demand for medical oxygen is extremely high all over India, but the availability is limited and the prices are on the rise. With your donation we can ensure the supply of oxygen, medical materials and protective clothing for our staff!

We need your help and kindly ask for your donation to save lives!
