New Delhi: 

During the peak of the second wave of COVID-19 pandemic, from oxygen cylinders to ICU beds, there was an acute shortage of resources. Amid this, housing societies stepped up to the challenge, helping residents create COVID isolation centres within the colonies. One such was created by Ponty Chadha Foundation in Ghaziabad's Wave City residential township. Showcasing the true spirit of community living amid the pandemic, Ranjeet Singh Randhawa, General Manager, Dilbird Real Home Private Limited said,

As you know everyone was frantically running around for oxygen. Medicines were not available either. The Ponty Chadha Foundation opened a Covid relief centre, with 8 beds. The centre has every facility, from oxygen cylinders and concentrators to doctors and nurses. For anyone who needs medicine, food, or anything else, we have a 24 hour team to help deliver what they need to their doorsteps.

From round the clock sanitisation to a full time ambulance service, the Wave City group is trying to help in every way possible to support the patients in this time of crisis. With a doctor on call, this COVID care centre built specially for the residents in Wave City ensured immediate help with a bed and an oxygen cylinder at a time when there was a medical crisis in the national capital. According to Dr. Rahim Khan, General Physician

When patients come here with COVID, we give them oxygen and first aid medicines. After that, we refer them to hospitals. Until our patients get a bed in hospital, we keep them here. We transfer them to hospital only when they get a bed.

Anil Kumar Tiwari, a resident said that in the current wave of COVID-19, people faced many problems, however, with the support of Wave City, the ambulances and medical assistance was provided at the right time. Another resident, Nitish Kumar said,

“Oxygen was not available at that point in time, not even in hospitals. But with their support, and our effort, we were able to set up this 8-bed COVID facility in quick time.”

About The Campaign

About The Campaign

India is in crisis. 

At a time when infection rates are soaring and every day brings grim news, at a time when beds, oxygen, medicine & hope seem to have all run out, all of India is feeling the same despair, the same distress, the same devastation. 

But through the darkness, there has been a ray of light.

The Sikh community has been at the forefront of relentlessly helping people during through the pandemic. If the rich living tradition of food sharing, as widely practiced in langars or community kitchens, fed millions last year, then this year the langars have provided an even more critical & basic element of life – oxygen.

In the time honoured Sikh tradition of selfless service and compassion, these Oxygen Langars sprang up almost immediately across affected cities, and in gurdwaras, where volunteers stood with oxygen cylinders for hours, helping breathless patients breathe, helping India breathe.

The Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee & NDTV are coming together for a special fundraising campaign, Dil Se Sewa – Helping India Breathe.

The funds raised will aid in providing this urgently needed support, amongst many others. It will go to support the gurdwara’s immediate & critical interventions like the oxygen langars, a newly created COVID care facility and the free ambulance service. But it will also contribute to other existing efforts that all aim to strengthen India’s health system for the future  – the free dialysis hospital, the low cost MRI & CT Scan centre and the dawakhanas that provide medicines at reasonable rates.
