Persistent’s COVID Relief Fund has proved to be extremely helpful in carrying out extensive initiatives to help many overcome the challenging time caused by the pandemic. This fund has helped to provide cooked meals and food kits, ventilators, oxygen concentrators, neonatal ventilators, refrigerators for vaccine storage, multipara monitors, heart-lung machines, RNA and DNA extraction machines, and much more.
Persistent Foundation also funded research on the epidemiological and serological survey done by IISER, Pune, India. Additionally, we helped set up two COVID care centers and equipped them with furniture and consumables. PPE kits were provided to hospitals to protect the staff while treating patients. A lifesaving oxygen supply pipeline was funded at a charitable hospital to help patients requiring oxygen.
