Most families in the slums do not own cars and are facing hardships to be able to take their COVID19 positive family members to the hospitals. This beside the fact that, by the time they find beds – which currently (oxygen support ICU beds) are in shortage even to those that can afford, lives are being lost.
The Mobile ICUs ensure help is within reach, since it can be docked near the slums, and will be fully equipped to handle emergencies. Thus, saving lives of thousands of underprivileged, those currently lacking access to medical aid and support to get vaccinated.
Creating one set of a 6 bed Mobile ICU and a 25 bed Modular ICU will cost us circa USD 150K including one time and running cost for 6 months. The plan is to deploy atleast 10 such units. However our immediate objective is to deploy the first pilot unit by June 15th 2021. The faster we receive contributions, the faster we can deploy. Look forward to your support to save many lives.
