Covid19 HELP FOR INDIA

India is faced by devastating consequences - especially the most vulnerable are suffering. Help National Councilor Nik Gugger to buy ventilators!

The tribal people of Odisha, east state of India are suffering the most due to Covid-19. Around 40% of Odishas population is living below the poverty line with the highest poverty in indigenous groups in India.

With your donation Nik Gugger will enable direct help where most needed. He is Swiss National Councillor, President of the Swiss-Indian Parlamentarian group, of indian origin and global ambassador of the Kalinga Institute in Odisha. Contribute now to make it possible that Nik can buy ventilators in Switzerland at a special price:

  • 1 mobile Hamilton ventilator (ICU) for the intensive care unit (20,000.- including shipping to Odisha)
  • 4 mobile Philips ventilators without intensive care (NIC) (5,000.- including shipping to Odisha)
  • Help to maintain the additional 500 Covid-beds and infrastructure (5000.-) (check out video in the header)
  • 1 mobile ICU was generously financed in advance by the Jehle company (including shipping to Kerala)

Nik Gugger ensures that all the money donated goes to the ventilators. He and Copalana dont take any commissions.

Help the people in the Khordha district of Odisha, where the most Covid cases are recorded and the ventilators are needed most. The devices are used directly in the Kalinga Institute of Medical Science as quickly as possible.

    Nik, es ist ein wahres Gut des Menschen, anderen zu helfen. Du hast ein großes und gutes Herz für andere, das muss man einfach unterstützen. In einer westlichen Welt des Überflusses vergisst man gern die armen. In Corona um so mehr. Ich mache das gerne und fordere jeden auf, das gleiche zu tun. LG Wolfi aus Niederbayern.

    Thanks Dr.h.c Nik Gugger for your most valuable support, which is much needed and most appreciated. KIMS is now increasing bed capacity with an addition of 500 more beds for COVID patients due to huge spike in number of cases every day. With your help and support we would be able to get more ventilators and oxygen support to save lives.

    Wenn menschen im Not sind, vergiss bitte alles. Geld kannst du ins Leben viel verdienen, aber das Leben kannst du nicht. Hilft anderen, Leben will dich sicher auch das zurückgeben.😊

    Danke Nik für diese wertvolle Initiative. Wir müssen vernetzt denken, über Grenzen hinaus, denn wir haben zwar alle das gleiche ‚Problem‘ aber unterschiedliche Voraussetzungen, um es zu lösen. Daher finde ich es wichtig, hier Verantwortung zu übernehmen. Danke!
