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.
The funds raised will help healthcare workers at SMS Hospital, Jaipur.
IT COSTS JUST INR 700 TO PROVIDE ONE PPE KIT TO A HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONAL.
CONTENTS OF A KIT
I am DEVANSH KUMAR. I'm 16 years old and a student at the NMS School, Jaipur.
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected all of us in different ways. However, there's a large group of healthcare professionals in this country fighting day in and day out to help all of us overcome these difficult times. They are leading the fight against this pandemic in every possible way by leaving their family at home. So it is critical that we as citizens, should ensure the ones who are saving us are safe in the first place.
I am raising funds to provide PPE Kits to healthcare professionals in Jaipur. Kindly support this campaign.

FEEDBACK THAT YOU GET
To ensure there is complete transparency, a report will be made about the beneficiaries of the campaign. The details will be posted on the UPDATES section of this campaign. As soon as an update is posted, the platform will send an EMAIL alert to all the funders ie. you. Click on the link on the email and you can read about who benefited. That's transparent, right?
Will we get to know the details of who benefitted?
Yes. After the money has been collected it will be transferred by Fueladream to us. It will take from 7-10 days after that to start getting details of fund use. Once I get this information from them I shall upload this on the UPDATES section of this campaign. You will then get an alert & can read details about the beneficiaries.
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. 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.
