ON THE FRONT LINES WITH NO PROTECTIVE GEAR: Doctors, Nurses & healthcare workers need our help.
The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eye gear makes it a very high risk for medical workers during COVID-19 times. Let's help them with PPE (Personal Protective gear in their fight against coronavirus)
There is a sense of alarm among healthcare professionals across India. In order for health care workers to do their job, they need to be protected against the virus themselves, for which they need Personal Protection Kits. A PPE kit includes gloves, gowns, shoe covers, head covers, masks, eye protection, face shields, and goggles. There is a growing demand for it, but not an adequate supply of these kits - which is leading to a severe shortage. Healthcare workers are resorting to using bin liners & helmets as substitutes.
Healthcare professionals are leading the fight against this pandemic in every possible way by leaving their families at home. It is critical that we as citizens should ensure the ones who are saving us are safe in the first place.
IT COSTS JUST INR 800 TO PROVIDE ONE PPE KIT TO A HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONAL.
HELP US RAISE INR 1.6L OR MORE TO PROVIDE 200 PPE KITS OR MORE TO HEALTHCARE WORKERS IN BANGALORE.

How does crowdfunding work?
Crowdfunding in India is a relatively new concept & is growing very quickly.
It’s a concept that allows a large number of funders (like you) to fund an idea or a cause or event by giving small amounts of money online. Fueladream.com is a crowdfunding platform in India that allows for such pooling of funds. You can fund innovations & ideas on FuelADream and be the first to get these products or make them come true. You can also do a good turn by funding charities and causes through crowdfunding. When you fund a charity it’s more like a donation & you get small innovative rewards like a shout-out on an FB page or a thank you email from the beneficiaries.
