In 2020, empowHER India had donated 9,500 pieces of triple masks, 450 pieces of KN-95 masks, 450 pairs of gloves, 180 pieces of PPE kits, 50 pieces of sanitisers and 6 pieces of infrared forehead thermometers. Covid medicine kits (1450), oximeters (220), oxygen cylinders (22), protective face masks (500) and sanitary napkins (2000) were donated so that COVID-19 patients from low socio-economic groups could have access to medicines free of charge.
Covid-19 has significantly increased the awareness and need for primary health care across the country, especially in the rural areas. People need to be more aware of their basic health parameters, ensure they are regularly monitored, and act quickly when one of them is off.
The district of Raigad has approximately 1000 doctors and 300+ nursing homes/hospitals serving a population of more than 30,00,000. empowHER has designed an innovative program to provide doctors and institutions basic primary health care devices and consumables, not only to support the period of the pandemic that will last through 2021, but also for beyond.
The list includes the following
• Digital Thermometers
• BP Monitors
• Infra-Red Thermometers
• Portable Ventilators
• Syringes for vaccination
• PPE & Masks
