INDIA RELIEF – Oxygen Concentrator Drive Update

Dear GWAPI Members,

Our second shipment has cleared customs in New Delhi, and the Oxygen Concentrators will be dispersed to NGOs/ and Hospitals in Jammu, Ludhiana, Chandigarh, and Rajasthan.  In addition to updates regarding our shipments, we want to update you on the other initiatives being led by our very own GWAPI members and friends.

Preet Takhar is in the process of gathering ventilators, BiPap machines, and oxygen concentrators to be sent to Chandigarh.

Dr. Khanna is working to arrange for oxygen concentrators to be sent to Rajasthan. Dr. Sekhsaria, and Dr. Suresh C. Gupta  continue to work with IDRF on establishing an oxygen plant in Rajasthan as well. 
Additionally, we are working with Dr. Sanjiv Lakhanpal via the “Lakhanpal Vein Foundation” to send supplies such as high flow oxygen masks, syringes, gloves and other medical supplies to Amritsar. A big thank you to Dr. Lakhanpal for a very generous offer to match funds  for this initiative.
All of these initiatives are grand gestures, and require tons of procurement and logistical coordination. Many Many thanks to everyone involved.
As always, if you have any questions do not hesitate to reach out to our Executive Director, Trishna Batra at /GWAPI2021@ OR cell (317)903-0882.


Procurement :

100 units @ $409 were obtained from Beachwood Medical Supplies in Los Angeles, CA.(Approximately$40,900 towards 100 Dynarex 5L/min model).


Our 100 oxygen  concentrators are part of a larger shipment consisting of 324 units. The (Silver Spring )Guru Nanak Foundation ( (Gurdwara)/ and  Rajasthan AAPI is paying for the shipment of the other 224. These units will be shipped out via an Air India aircraft.


Arranging Transportation has been  a tedious process requiring a lot of  maneuvering and attention to timing & tracking in an effort to make sure that oxygen concentrators will find their way to the entities in India which are taking care of patients directly in an earnest charitable way.

 We are indeed extremely grateful  once again to the  “ Friends of  GWAPI -as the PunitaGroup LLC  continues to guide us as in regards to all the necessary advice about the best and most economical shipment options.

Cost of shipping:

As we are making sure that GWAPI is able to keep control of the concentrators as they arrive in India to be distributed to various different entities across India, we have to bear the air freight cost.  We had been quoted upwards of $125 per piece, but thanks  to the Punitha Group the cost will be approximately between $ 80-100 per unit.

Transparency to our members is of utmost importance to us, and we will continue to provide you with the detailed information as we receive it. 

Once again a huge thanks to the PunitaGroup as they are allowing us to utilize their EXIM license, staff for paper work, and Delhi Warehouse at no additional charge. 

This is truly a honorable example of coming together for the greater good!

On the ground logistics:

We are hoping to get the concentrators to India as soon as possible, and we have been in constant touch with charities such as Hemkunt foundation, Mata Gujri Hospital, and Beena Anand charitable trust , CIIWI to name a few. 

Our goal is to have a solid “boots on the ground “ distribution plan in place, in order to ensure expeditious delivery units to the patients without any cost to them.

We truly appreciate our donors and are committed in ensuring that every  penny will go towards the oxygen needs of our beloved Indians residents .

Thanks a ton to all the GWAPI  team members who have been working around the clock to make this happen!!

If you have not already made your donation, please do so TODAY via Venmo @GWAPI-GWAPI or by contacting Trishna Batra directly at (317)903-0882. Thank you!
