The Covid has had devastating effect in the entire country, Mumbai being one of the worst hit cities. Lack of hospital beds coupled with acute shortage of oxygen supplies in hospitals made matters worse. Having regard to the emergency situation and the then likely prolongation of the pandemic, Centrum Foundation procured six Israel made Dual Flow Oxygen Concentrators (10 litre per minute capacity) to be made available to the needy patients free of cost for the period of their treatments at homes.
Healthcare infrastructure, particularly in public hospitals, suffer immensely due to lack of adequate supply of medical devices and critical supplies. The Foundation donated a large amount of medical supplies including PPE kits, wheel chairs and life-saving equipment to hospitals in Mumbai. The Foundation has also donated a latest version of 3 chip camera to the Department of Urology at Sion Hospital to Support endoscopic surgeries.
