Together we can overcome any adversity, no matter how daunting. Aayna Clinics, Clinikally, LAHS For India & our clients, in collaboration with I Am Gurgaon, are partnering to bring Oxygen (LIFE) to underserved and under-resourced areas across rural India.
While those in larger localities and with access to social media and active helplines at least have some direction on where to seek help, many in underserved areas are dying without ever even imagining that reaching out for Oxygen and other essentials is possible.
We are raising 50 lakh ($70,000) to donate Oxygen Concentrators to COVID patients, hospitals, hotels, covid-care facilities across underserved areas. With this initiative, we actively source concentrators from trusted suppliers (our very own clients), store them at our clinics and dispatch them to COVID-care facilities daily.
Separately, Aayna Clinic's doctors are doing free chat/DM consults with COVID patients & affected families all day (over 5,000 completed thus far). To chat with a doctor about symptoms, testing, self-monitoring, vaccines, supportive treatment etc, anyone can DM @AaynaClinic on Twitter, Instagram (@aaynaclinic_official) , or on our WhatsApp covid (chat) helpline (+917015973045) round the clock!
Update: We are now supported by the generosity of Los Altos High School Alumni, California (USA).

Aayna Clinics, LAHS For India & our clients, in collaboration with I Am Gurgaon, are partnering to bring Oxygen (LIFE) to underserved and under-resourced areas across Delhi-NCR. This initiative is about breathing life into our communities again. It's about providing Oxygen supplies to many who do not even make it to social media SOS requests.
While we deliver concentrators to covid-care facilities, hotels and hospitals in these areas, our doctors are actively doing free text/chat/DM consults with COVID patients & affected families all day (Twitter, Instagram & Whatsapp: +917015973045).
With over 300k cases a day and overcrowded hospitals, millions of patients are not able to get the care they need to survive COVID-19. According to BBC, India is using over 14 million cubic meters of oxygen a day, about 10x more than they were using in January. All of India is facing oxygen shortages, with the poorer areas facing even more because they are not able to afford the ample amount of oxygen required to take care of the surge of patients. Now while urban India has somewhat turned the tide, underserved parts of rural India remain devastated by unimaginable COVID surges. With hospitals in larger cities managing to keep Oxygen supply at a bare minimum due to access to critical infrastructure, the villages (where 70% of India lives) are battling COVID without so much as basic diagnostic medicines or testing infrastructure.
I Am Gurgaon is an NGO that performs yeoman service for the people of Gurgaon and New Delhi-NCR (National Capital Region)wh. All throughout the pandemic, they've had a stellar record of serving the community selflessly, through widespread mask distribution and vaccination campaigns, building COVID care facilities from the ground up, providing meals for those infected with COVID, and now seamlessly supplying oxygen and other essentials to local hospitals.
Los Altos High School (LAHS), California for India is an initiative by sophomore Tejas Oberoi to provide an accessible and seamless avenue for people across the US to help India fight a devastating second wave of COVID. LAHS for India has actively earmarked areas that require urgent assistance, co-developed this website and associated tech, created outlines for the scope of relief work and has raised substantial amounts that have since been redirected towards essential supplies to save lives.
The initiative was born out of Tejas' unwavering desire to give back to India during its time of crisis, where many of his family members and relatives are risking it all to fight the virus on the frontlines. With this endeavour, he effortlessly brings together his various overlapping communities across high school and the Bay Area to help breathe life into India again.
As of now, all donations connected will be used towards delivering Oxygen Concentrators to COVID patients, hospitals, hotels, covid-care facilities across underserved areas. Everyday we source concentrators from trusted suppliers (our very own clients), store them at our clinics and dispatch to COVID-care facilities across New Delhi-NCR (National Capital Region) and beyond. AAYNA will match every rupee in contributions up to 5 lakh.
While we are already helping with oxygen concentrators, in the coming week we will also begin sponsoring tests for the deserving under-served populations and covering their emergency Covid treatment at authorized centers and by qualified doctors.

Underserved areas are pockets of Delhi-NCR that are heavily under-resourced in terms of coverage of hospitals and primary healthcare clinics. Team AAYNA has identified many such areas where social media SOS requests and calling active helplines to seek help for Oxygen supplies are never even factored in due to widespread information gaps.
Please reach us via e-mail on firstname.lastname@example.org or WhatsApp us on +917015973045. We would love to have you on board!
