Ballarat group appealing for donations to help Covid-ravaged India


A Ballarat fundraising group is appealing for donations to send resources to parts India ravaged by Covid-19.

The Friends of India Network has teamed up with a Sydney-based charity to export oxygen concentrators to rural parts of the country.

Group president Sanjay Sharma says the concentrators, which supply up to 10-litrs of purified oxygen, will help save lives of people who can’t access treatment.

"This particular charity that we are liaising with is working with the armed forces in field hospitals and will send resources to areas that really need help," he said.

Details on how to donate can be found on the Friends of India Facebook page.
