Partnerships are at the heart of what we do – this is not just the partnership with the organisations we support in India, but also with groups that we collaborate with here in the United Kingdom. We have been lucky that we have a great group of collaborators who share our ethos and work with us to continue our support to communities in Rural India. The range of collaborations is diverse, from being charity partners for businesses to working together to get Oxygen Units to partners in India. We welcome likeminded groups to get involved and get in touch with us to start a great collaboration.
In May 2021, when the covid crisis was at its peak in India, NishkwamSWAT donated 39 Oxygen Units.
The 2nd wave of Covid affected many people and it was more dangerous than 1st wave. Many people were dying due to the unavailability of beds in hospitals and shortage of medicines. There was a lack of oxygen availability in hospitals. Many people were suffering from Covid, and several deaths happened due to the lack of proper treatment. Many people did not have precautionary medical equipment such as thermometer, oximeter, vaporizer, etc in their homes which made the situation worse.
To help support medical centers cope with the number of patients, 15 Oxygen units were provided to NBJK’s Eye Hospital and 24 to Ekta Parishad who distributed them across different health centers across 4 states.
NishkamSWAT is a charitable organisation based in the UK. Their primary function is to unite and transform financially disadvantaged communities by focusing on projects which make a difference to people’s lives and improve their prospects. Their current projects include the Homeless Project, Nishkam SWAT Project Recovery, Elderly Care Project and Nishkam Healthcare.Find out More
