During the start of the Coronavirus pandemic, The Chahal Foundation has donated (as part of its disaster relief efforts) N95 masks, rapid test kits, personal protective equipment, and life-saving devices such as ventilators, to hospitals across the globe. Through this initiative, it has also built a vast trusted procurement network.
The foundation has extended its procurement network to local state and central governments to stockpile for their own needs. Our alliance now includes 13 governments and 50 global manufacturers. The supply-chain chaos has further devastated the global markets as the surge in immediate demand has caused many countries to be ill-prepared for dealing with the virus. This has caused, in many instances, governments to out-bid one another. Our vast procurement network has helped them procure supplies quicker and save immediate lives. Allowing, governments to work with trusted sources and avoid bidding against one another.
On April 10th, 2020, Punjab CM, Captain Amarinder Singh, confirmed community transmission of coronavirus in state.
Hospitals and NGOs have reached out to the foundation to share their dire circumstances and the need to get more testing done to contain the spread.
Many Punjabis have been deeply worried about the state. We urge others to join us to support the State and send supplies they need to survive this.
This campaign is to purchase as many Rapid Test Kits and provide them directly to Hospitals and NGOs. The distribution will be public and transparent.
The cost of the kit is currently $18 per unit directly from the factory. Please donate what you can. For every $1 you contribute, we will match it.
So, for every 1 kit purchased, our foundation will purchase 1 additional kit.
At a time, when the world is in crisis, we all must do what we can do to save lives.
Waheguru Sab Ti Meher Kare.
