India Needs Oxygen

The current wave of the Covid-19 pandemic has left our country gasping. Our hospitals are operating under dire situations and patients are struggling to get hold of required oxygen. India urgently needs oxygen concentrators to save thousands of lives.

Feeding India, Zomato’s not-for-profit, has initiated an endeavour in association with Delhivery to fulfil this gap. Within a few hours of launching the campaign, we have been able to raise ₹12.5Cr of our ₹50Cr goal.

What is ‘India Needs Oxygen’?

As a part of this endeavour, we are providing hospitals and patients with oxygen concentrators and related supplies. 

How will your donations be used?

  • We are purchasing and distributing oxygen concentrators in collaboration with our logistics partner Delhivery
  • Every rupee you donate will go towards supporting hospitals and patients in need

Who can contribute?

Anyone and everyone. One oxygen concentrator can save five lives every day, and a 10L concentrator costs approx ₹35,000 on average*. We need your help to raise ₹50 crores to procure oxygen concentrators** for our country immediately and save hundreds of thousands of lives. This is the need of the hour for thousands of Covid patients.

Please donate using this link. You can also spread the word by sharing a WhatsApp message as below:

Our country is facing an acute shortage of oxygen, and that puts our lives at risk.
Help save India by contributing towards Feeding India by Zomato’s initiative *India Needs Oxygen* as they provide hospitals with much-needed oxygen and other supplies.

It needs your support! 🙏🏻

Please forward to as many people as you can.

*Cost of Oxygen Concentrators depend upon capacity, medical-grade, delivery timelines, logistics, and distribution costs.

**Number of Concentrators procured will depend on the factors mentioned above.
