GFA World (www.gfa.org) is sending oxygen equipment and supplies to help people fighting for breath amid India’s devastating second wave of COVID-19, according to the humanitarian agency.
The Texas-based organization reports that they are readying the first shipment of lifesaving medical supplies as India remains in the grip of a worsening crisis. Demand for oxygen has increased sevenfold since last month. Reports say two people are dying of COVID-19 every single minute in India — gasping for air as oxygen and equipment runs out at hospitals across the nation.
“We cannot stand by and watch thousands suffer and die, gasping for breath,” said GFA World Founder K.P. Yohannan, as the nation’s official COVID-19 death toll approaches 250,000. “India is literally suffocating to death. I’ve never seen anything that compares with this tsunami of suffering.”
‘Third Wave’ of Compassion
Along with other organizations, GFA World is “helping launch a ‘third wave’ of compassion, prayer and humanitarian aid to India,” said Yohannan, as the agency announced efforts to ship oxygen equipment as quickly as possible.
The organization is partnering with indigenous local hospitals in Southwest India to get aid to those suffering.
