With record breaking deaths in the recent Covid-19 surge, India has witnessed a shortage of oxygen equipment, concentrators, BI-pap machines, and CT-scans, which all have hindered the ability to provide timely and adequate care, said a press release.

With the help of donors and supporters, CCF released $150,000 for India as well as the local San Francisco Bay Area and nationwide as well. Dr. Jasavantbhai Patel, with the help of Best Care Pharmacy California, donated 100 units of oxygen concentrators to the Visnagar area to establish an oxygen concentrator bank in Gujarat State in India, added the release.

Shrimad Rajchandra Love and Care USA joined hands with CCF to provide a dedicated Covid-19 health center that provides life saving services for patients from the rural area of Southern Gujarat state. The Covid health center started with a 50-bed unit with modern medical facilities to treat patients with Covid-19 and quickly expanded to another 150-bed unit to address the growing needs of the community. The center is equipped with ICU beds, CT-scans, ventilators, and Bi-pap machines. The services are provided to the tribal populations of the Dharampur and surrounding areas.

CCF, along with Leuva Patidar Samaj of USA, established two oxygen plants in Navasari and Bardoli. LPS prepared and distributed 2000 medical kit in Phase-1, the release noted, adding the kitss contain sanitizer bottles, N95 masks, soap, vitamin C, E and D tablets.
