Heart for India Foundation launches ‘Oxygen for India’ initiative

Chennai : Heart for India Foundation and its partners have joined hands to provide oxygen concentrators to St.Thomas hospital and to support disadvantaged neighborhoods in Chennai.

The “Oxygen for India initiative” has been aimed at supporting the underprivileged people affected by the second Covid-19 wave in India.

Heart for India Foundation supports five schools, one balwadi and one professional training center in Chennai. Over the years, the foundation has supported 35,700 children and distributed six million meals.

Alerted by the lack of oxygen concentrators in the city, the Heart for India provided oxygen concentrators to St.Thomas
hospital and the first delivery has been completed in May with the support of donators and the assistance of on-site coordinators, securing the delivery of the oxygen concentrators, according to a release here today.

Today, the initiative is going further, with the foundation and partners working on providing more oxygen concentrators to
the hospital and neighborhoods.

“Our partners and private donors, including Les Roches, world leading hospitality business school, CornèrBank (Cornèrcard), LetuBooks (Librairie Bernard Letu), Yucca IT Solution and Mediagraphic Group which support our programs to help children and young women in Chennai, recognized the need to support our action “Oxygen for India”.

With their help we are able to save many lives”, Françoise Sturdza, Founder and Honorary President, Heart for India Foundation, said.
