â€œSeva Paramo Dharmaâ€ is what people around the world have taught us during the COVID crises as they have been helping people affected due to the deadly infection.
Khushroo Poacha a social worker from Nagpur is among such brave souls who have been helping people, migrant workers, poor sections of society since the pandemic began affecting the city. During this unprecedented trouble, his Seva kitchen is helping feed by providing food packets and meals to the daily workers, coolies, stranded people, patients, and their relatives in this Coronavirus crisis.
Citing the oxygen crisis and post-Covid need for oxygen cylinders as instructed by doctors Khushroo Poacha came up with a unique solution and has begun â€œOxygen Bankâ€ especially targeting the tribals in forests and urban poor or slum-dwellers in the Vidarbha region.
Khushroo said that â€œMany government and private hospitals insist that the patient must remain on oxygen for at least a month. But, due to high prices the poor patients find it difficult to afford thisâ€.
Khushroo informed that â€œCiting the crises and prices of these oxygen cylinders we set up oxygen banks in which we provided 6 oxygen concentrators at Melghat while 6 at Pandavkavda region while 4 at Nagpur. These services are free of cost peopleâ€
In Nagpur these Oxygen banks are at â€˜Teka Nakaâ€™, â€˜Mankapurâ€™, â€˜Koradi Roadâ€™, â€˜Trimurti Nagarâ€™ he informed.
Although the Active cases in Nagpur district have dropped to 9072, the rural area is a major concern for the administration.
