Emergency Aid to India

Hexham Rotary respond rapidly to the request for better oxygen supplies in India.


Hexham Rotary Helps in India

Hexham Rotary Helps Provide Oxygen for India 4th May 2021.
Hexham Rotary’s Disaster Fund has rushed to help the appeal for oxygen in the Indian Covid-19 outbreak. An immediate £500 was sent to the British Asian Trust ‘Oxygen for India’ Emergency Appeal and this was followed up over the weekend by a further £1311 donated by Club Members.
The British Asian Trust, a Prince of Wales’ Charity, has an emergency appeal ‘Oxygen For India’ to aid the deepening COVID-19 crisis in India. Rates of COVID-19 cases and deaths in India are rising at a hugely alarming pace, with India setting new world records for the daily rise in number of cases. India’s hospitals are overrun, have stopped admitting patients and are running low on vital supplies and equipment including oxygen, leaving people helpless as they watch their loved ones die on stretchers outside the hospital doors.

The Trust has responded by thanking Hexham Rotary for their help
The money will be used to send Oxygen Concentrators to India and our picture shows these being packed ready for despatch.  Hexham Rotary is able to quickly respond to disasters around the world as they have established a Disaster Fund that holds money ready for any emergency and we have the ability to make quick decisions on how to provide aid.
