With oxygen shortage a reality in many parts of the country, 16-year-old Garv Singh Khurana, a resident of the city, took it upon himself to arrange oxygen concentrators for those in urgent need. “We set up a fundraiser over 10 days ago,” shares Garv, who is behind the OxygenAid initiative. As many as 11 oxygen concentrators have been procured and the goal is of getting 100 concentrators. “I go and drop concentrators at home for Covid-19 patients as they cannot step out.” On being asked what encouraged him to take up the initiative, Garv says: “The past month, I have been inundated with stories of Covid-19 patients gasping for oxygen. So, I started OxygenAid, to raise money and lend oxygen concentrators to those who cannot afford one. We all need help and we need it now.” The patients can contact at phone numbers: 7341191183, 9910417197 and 9811198762. — TNS
