Enable immediate access to Oxygen concentrators and provision of Oxygen generation plants


Tech Mahindra foundation, the CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) arm of Tech Mahindra Ltd., a leading provider of digital transformation, consulting and business re-engineering services and solutions, today announced its support to Mission Oxygen, an initiative by Democracy People Foundation, to ensure last mile delivery of oxygen supply across India. The partnership will strive to ensure that hospitals, nursing homes and medical care facilities, especially in tier-2 cities, get immediate access to oxygen. 



Considering the likelihood of a wave 3, the goal of this initiative in its second phase will be to also enable hospitals to become self-sufficient by enabling the provision of PSA (Pressure swing adsorption) plants. Few of these plants will produce cylindrical capacity of 15 Nm3/hour which will amount to 55 oxygen cylinders per day. This will be able to support uninterrupted O2 supply to 27-30 patients.



Mission Oxygen is an initiative by the Democracy People Foundation with participation of 250 entrepreneurs that has successfully raised Rs 36 Crores through its efforts and has already donated 1000 Oxygen Concentrators and will donate 5000 more Oxygen Generators by the 20th of May.  It has also setup an oxygen plant in Deen Dayal Upadhyay hospital in Delhi in a record 7 days as a part of its initiative to ensure that hospitals have a permanent setup, rather than depend on cylinders and concentrators.  As part of the partnership, Tech Mahindra will provide technologies to digitally support the campaign and enable their supply chain operations. Additionally, the partnership will also leverage the Tech Mahindra’s global partner ecosystem of associates, clients and partners to raise awareness.



Mission Oxygen campaign is funded by the citizens of India and by Indian across the world. The oxygen concentrators that have been donated are already saving lives at various Government hospitals with several of them donated to the Border Security Force and Army hospitals to show our respect and solidarity with them for their service to our nation.
