The country has been reeling under the impact of the second wave of coronavirus in which the patients are suffering from oxygen shortage. Meanwhile, due to the surge in cases, there is a huge demand for oxygen concentrators. Amid the massive shortage, social media is flooded with messages of people looking for oxygen concentrators for their friends and family. 

Singer Tulsi Kumar, who has been the voice of India in the music industry has now geared up to be the voice of people who are affected by the second wave. Tulsi has joined hands with Mission Josh to impact lives of 5000 people through their partner NGOs in affected cities across India by providing free oxygen concentrators to patients at home.

Talking about what prompted her to take up the initiative, she said in a statement shared by her team:


“I believe in voicing up for causes that are close to my heart, and I have seen a lot of deaths around me since the first wave- so this mission helps me in ensuring we are impacting as many lives as we can.”

Sharing more details about the initiative, she adds:

“With the second wave and its ongoing crises and massive affect in India, I realised it’s time to act. We launched #Mission5000 initiative which aims to provide free of cost oxygen concentrators to the COVID patients who are less critical and can be treated at home. The idea is to help patients at home, to save beds in hospitals for the severely affected patients. Every drop in the ocean counts so each contribution that comes as donation from people who plan to donate to our ketto campaign, will add to the massive impact we can create collectively.The goal of this campaign is 5Cr and this amount will in total impact 5000 lives. Once the impact is made we will donate these concentrators to hospitals, NGOs so the cycle can continue since these concentrators have a lifespan of upto 5 years. 

With this initiative, Mission Josh is teaming up with multiple NGOs in different parts of India to provide concentrators to patients at home.

This initiative will help impact lives of people in Mumbai, Delhi, Jaipur, Ahmedabad, Guwahati, Surat, Pune and a few more cities. The goal is to provide oxygen concentrators to everyone while focusing and prioritising the ones who really need it the most.
