Anupam Kher starts Project Heal India to provide COVID-19 relief
The initiative will provide critical equipment and other life supporting devices to needy institutions and hospitals across India
Anupam Kher Foundation in collaboration with Dr Ashutosh Tewari (Global Cancer Foundation, USA) and Baba Kalyani (Bharat Forge, India) have started an initiative called Project Heal India.
Through this initiative, medical aid and other relief will be provided in the fight against the COVID-19 crisis in India. Critical equipment and other life supporting devices are to be provided to needy institutions and hospitals across India. The first consignment of CrossVent Ventilators (ICU Critical Care), Medtronic Ventilators, ResMed non-invasive ventilation devices and oxygen concentrators are expected to arrive in India within the week.
“As India is reeling under a huge crisis, it is our moral responsibility to pick up the mantle and do our bit,” Anupam Kher said. “Numerous people from around the globe reached out asking of ways to be of help but Dr Ashutosh Tewari was one of the first to come up with a concrete plan. This gave me the needed impetus to take this forward and be of service to our nation.”
Project Heal India will also continue to raise funds, medicines, and other necessary relief material for the community at large
