Our Campaign Story

ends 28 Jun 2021, 11:59 PM

The Social & Sports Committee (SSC) of AET is appealing for help with the COVID-19 crisis in India. Please donate and - Let's help India - breathe.

The crisis started in April.

Hospitals continued to send desperate messages for emergency oxygen supplies.

With no guarantee of oxygen supplies, hospitals in India had the difficult task to refuse admission of COVID-19 patients.

One oxygen cylinder can provide you with 11 hours of air to breathe.
11 hours for a chance to live.
11 hours for a chance to survive.
One oxygen cylinder costs $300.
$300 for 11 hours.

Some of us have done our part when the crisis started.

But the crisis shows no signs of abating.
They still need our help.
Let's do our part.

You can help by making your donation to a funding page AET has set up with the Singapore Red Cross.

Note: Donations to overseas efforts are not tax-deductible.

Updates as of 12 May 2021: Since the launch of its public appeal on 28 April, the Singapore Red Cross has received over S$3.2 million in donations.

The first tranche of aid, worth about SGD 3.6 million, includes medical equipment such as oxygen concentrators, oxygen cylinders, and ventilators to directly support patients and healthcare workers in hospitals.

SRC is fundraising to deliver assistance and support communities in India, affected or at risk of being affected by the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak.

Medical equipment and supplies, such as ventilators, oxygen cylinders and oxygen concentrators, are urgently needed. In the first instance, we have purchased and will deliver five ventilators to community hospitals in New Delhi through the Indian Red Cross Society. As we raise more funds, we can provide more lifesaving medical resources.

'The needs are immense, and we look forward to working with more organisations to support the relief efforts in India. Our response plan will be adjusted based on ongoing developments, evolving needs and regular assessment of the situation,' said Mr Benjamin William.
