    Donate Oxygen India

    Oxygen is one of the most valuable commodities in the light of the pandemic. The need for medical oxygen increased by 12 times at the peak of the pandemic. While the country grappled with an acute oxygen shortage, several independent groups stepped up to help make up for it. Donate Oxygen India is one such campaign on Ketto which received immense support through crowdfunding. It is a task force that was set up by Amba Dalmia Foundation, Keventers, Letters of Love, Medulance, Quase and several volunteers across the country.

    Strong Start By The Creators

    The crowdfunding campaign got an overwhelming start with close to Rs.40,00,000 donated by the Keventers Corporate Group, The Amba Dalmia Foundation and their friends and family. Community Arts Network and Letters of Love will use the power of arts and community to contribute. They are collaborating on an e-concert with 10 globally acclaimed artists to raise funds for Donate Oxygen India.

    In addition to this, the popularity of the Ketto online crowdfunding platform has gathered great public support. The combined efforts have led to several successful projects under the Donate Oxygen India campaign. The beneficiaries of this fundraiser are individuals and families affected by the Covid-19 virus.
