HYDERABAD: Sahayata Trust, a city-based NGO and Indian wing of Indian Muslim Relief and Charity IMRC, USA has announced that it will set up four oxygen plants to aid oxygen supply for Covid-19 patients. Of four, two plants will be set up for Hyderabad and Secunderabad while the remaining two will be set up in different states.
The move comes after the decision of IMRC, USA chairman Manzoor Ghori, who directed the CEO of Sahayata Trust Syed Aneesuddin to oversee the project. "This is the first time an oxygen plant is being set up by any NGO in Hyderabad," said Aneesuddin.
"Of two plants earmarked for the city, one plant will be set up at the Indo US Hospital in Malakpet while the other one will be set up at one of the trust's facilities in Tolichowki. Each plant would have the capacity to produce about 5,000 litres of oxygen per day," he said.
The INDO-US hospital plant will be solely for hospital patients, while the Tolichowki plant will provide free refilling of oxygen until the Covid-19 crisis ends.
According to Aneesuddin, these concentrators will be provided to different NGOs in different cities across India. "This is the largest donation of oxygen concentrators to any NGO from another country," he said.
