Anglican Aid is responding to the COVID-19 crisis in India by supporting Christian Hospitals in north India with essential supplies and equipment.
We have received urgent requests from Herpertpur Christian Hospital and Nav Jivan Hospital for help to provide equipment like ventilators, monitors, PPE (personal protective equipment) kits, and food for the COVID patients.
The hospitals are being overwhelmed with cases after being designated COVID hospitals in response to the crisis.
Your tax-deductible gift will provide PPE equipment for hospital staff and medical supplies like ventilators to Christian hospitals in India.Give now
Herbertpur Christian Hospital currently has a total of 30 beds for COVID treatment and are working to bring that number up to 50. The hospital services an area with a population of 2 million people.
It is the only COVID hospital in a 20km radius.
Nav Jivan Hospital in Jharkhand State, North East India, is the only health facility with an ICU in a 150km radius. The state’s high COVID-19 death rate reflects the low capacity of the region’s healthcare systems to care for critical cases. The region has some of the highest levels of poverty in India.
With your support, Anglican Aid is sending Nav Jivan Hospital resources desperately needed to care for COVID-19 patients, including a larger ICU facility, a ventilator and an oxygen plant. The oxygen plant will allow the hospital to generate their own oxygen on-site, instead of relying on oxygen cylinders, which are in severe shortage.
Both hospitals are members of the Emmanuel Christian Hospital Association, serving anyone regardless of race, caste, creed, religion, or financial means.
Robert Kumar is the Project Director for Community Health & Development at Herbertpur Christian Hospital. He described the situation as a national emergency.
“We are facing big challenges due to overload. Hospitals are full and people are left with no choice except to put beds on the road and wait for admission.”
