Need of the hour - MEGA CHANGEMakers

Meet the ‘Oxygen Man’

He’s a 52-year young man from Patna, Mr. Gaurav Rai

Saved more than 1400 lives of COVID patients

Carrying oxygen cylinders in his small WagonR car
Starts his day at 5 am and continues beyond mid-night driving his car himself and installing cylinders for the patients who are home-quarantined.

It’s a free of cost service.

He has been providing this service for almost a year.

What led him to take this initiative?
He himself was a covid patient in Jul-2020 and hospitalized at the Patna Medical College Hospital

He could find a bed for himself.

He was gasping for breath and no oxygen cylinders were available.

It took 4-5 hours to arrange the oxygen cylinder
That’s when he decided to take this initiative using their own money – ‘The Oxygen Bank’

Many people are helping him as they got to know about the initiative

Started with 10 oxygen cylinders, he has more than 200 cylinders in his bank.
Started with Patna city, the initiative has spread across 18 districts of Bihar

Another inspirational part of his story is, he wanted to commit suicide in Dec 2019 when paralysis hit his vocal cord and he was unable to speak.
Now, he’s a life savior and he will continue doing it as much as possible with the available resources and his fitness.

He says, “I’m working from my heart, not from my mind.”
There could be many other changemakers to manage these difficult covid times. Let’s support, appreciate, and highlight them.

One of the crucial requirements to manage the difficult times is to ensure the last mile support and that is what Mr. Gaurav Rai is ensuring!
What an inspiration, Mr. Gaurav Rai; Kudos to your efforts!
