Read up more on Mission Oxygen on our website here.
Mission Oxygen started out as a crowdfunding campaign to source 500 Oxygen Concentrators on Friday, 23rd April, 2021. We were possibly one of the first to setup a large scale campaign to get contributions to source donations, to get supply of oxygen concentrators for hospitals. As on date (4 May, 2021) we have raised over INR 30 Crores (~USD 4 million) and have placed orders for 6000 Oxygen concentrators. As the need for Mission Oxygen is far bigger than our team and the work we are doing, we are sharing a playbook that we hope helps others to replicate or improve upon what we have done and help India achieve its ultimate goal of defeating this COVID wave.
