Textile Designer Chinar Farooqui from Udaipur has set an example by donating Rs 15 Lakh towards the installation of an Oxygen pipeline at the Ambamata Satellite Hospital in Udaipur.
Chinar and her father, IPS officer Nisaar Ahmed have been at the helm of support to people in the city as they struggle with the pandemic. Nisar Ahmed has served as the Inspector General at the Anti-Corruption Bureau in Udaipur.
As per the hospital administration, the institution currently has 18 beds that are occupied by patients in need of oxygen. Only 8 beds have an installed Oxygen pipeline. The patients on the remaining beds are being supported by Oxygen cylinders. These 10 patients need 30 cylinders each day. A 100 cylinder capacity plant has already been installed at Ambamata Satellite hospital.
With this Oxygen pipeline that has been sponsored by Chinar in memory of her late grandfather, the hospital will be able to supply oxygen across all the 90 beds that the hospital houses currently. An oxygen pipeline supplies uninterrupted medical grade oxygen to patients that are on life support or those who are needing an external oxygen supply under defined pressure to generate the oxygen needed by the body, when the lungs are unable to intake oxygen to the required capacity in a natural manner.
