Good Morning Paul:

COVID 19 has created an unprecedented crisis for India and the Indian people. India needs oxygen concentrators, ventilators, and medicine.

American Association of Physicians from Indian Origin AAPI leadership has donated 100K for oxygen concentrators. One oxygen concentrator costs approximately $500.

There is a plan to send remdesivir, tocilizumab, steroid, aspirin, BiPAP, and ventilators. Few other leaders are trying to establish oxygen plants in various locations, which can be done at 50K.

Here are few websites where one can donate.
