Logitech, a Switzerland-based computer manufacturer, will be contributing $2 Million to provide oxygen as there is an acute shortage of oxygen supply in the country. In a social media post, Bracken Darrell, CEO of Logitech announced that this will be the largest donation as per the history of the brand.
Oxygen for India is an initiative that was started by the Center for Disease Dynamics, Economics & Policy, which is a public health research organization. The offices of this organization that helps in raising funds for medical care in India are in New Delhi and Washington D.C.
As per a report by WPVI-TV in Philadelphia, the number of COVID-19 patients dying before they can even see a doctor is overwhelming in India. Just like Logitech, Facebook, Amazon, Vivo among others have extended their support for India to fight against COVID-19.
