As India is confronting an extraordinary challenge of the COVID-19 pandemic, organizations are joining hands to respond to this common threat. The Pravin Agarwal Foundation (TPAF) through a special initiative is connecting with over 100+ hospitals across India to provide Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) kits for medical staff. This is in association with Doctors For You, a pan India humanitarian organization, and Ketto, an online crowdfunding platform.

TPAF, a non-profit, (www.tpaf.in), in a short span of 3 years, has been a front runner in facilitating paediatric liver transplants globally and to date, has enabled over 140 liver transplants for children from India and around the world. In the last 3 years, TPAF has facilitated more than INR 20 crore of funds towards the paediatric liver transplant and secured commitment of INR 100 crore dedicated to making paediatric liver care affordable, available and accessible for all.

The Coronavirus pandemic has engulfed the entire nation with over 10,000 positive cases. There are a huge Demand and Supply gap of PPEs across the country. Under TPAF’s special initiative, this gap is being addressed by – identifying demand at the hospital level, finalizing the suppliers and arranging for logistics to cater to the demand and raising funds to source PPE kits. The founder of this organization, Mr. Pravin Agarwal emphasizes having the correct approach to tackle the problem.

“As the Coronavirus pandemic engulfs the nation, it has proven to be a stressful time for all of us, and specifically for the medical community. While healthcare workers are working day-in and day-out to screen and treat patients, the shortage of PPE kits is exposing countless healthcare workers to the risk of getting infected by the Coronavirus. Through this initiative, we want to reach out to maximum hospitals, understand their requirements and ensure that this gap is bridged. While the medical community is fighting the battle at the forefront, the least we can do is support and safeguard them with the PPE kits,” said Mr. Pravin Agarwal, Founder, TPAF.

To assess the demand at a granular level, the medical fraternity is required to fill in a simple form through the link http://emergencies.in/ppe-kit-requirements/. As of now, over 100 hospitals across 20 states have registered for over 250,000 PPE kits.

TPAF is validating these requests and identifying hospitals that have an immediate requirement for PPE kits. Also, TPAF has identified PPE suppliers who have approval from SITRA or DRDE. The PPE kits will include Coverall bodysuits, 3-PLY Surgical Masks, Shoe Covers, Goggles, and Nitrile Gloves.

Funding

TPAF is raising funds for hospitals that need PPE kits. They have tied up with Ketto.org (a crowdfunding platform) to raise funds for each hospital that is approaching them. https://ppe4medics.ketto.org/

“Ketto has already raised over 15 crores to fight the Coronavirus pandemic. We have collaborated with hundreds of NGOs and prominent individuals to raise funds for ventilators, PPE kits, medical equipment, relief packages, etc. Having the Pravin Agarwal Foundation (TPAF) on board will allow us to reach out to more hospitals and fundraise for them. Our frontline healthcare workers are vulnerable without the PPE kits and our first priority should be to ensure their safety,” Ketto’s CEO Varun Sheth said.

In addition, TPAF will be matching 20% of every donation made to this initiative – for every INR 10,000 raised TPAF would contribute INR 2,000 to the hospital.

TPAF urges everyone to share this fundraising initiative so that they are able to save the lives of those people who are saving lives.
