Why we need your help

Oxygen Cylinder Refills 

 

A tragedy is unfolding in Malawi that the world needs to hear, a tragedy that in 2021 simply should not be happening, a tragedy that must be the catalyst for real and meaningful change in Malawi and across the developing world. Covid 19 is causing devastation here in Malawi and the health system simply can't cope. The lack of oxygen is leading to people dying needlessly from Covid 19 every day. Malawi simply does not have enough oxygen to help everyone.
Peter Minjale, "The Chief", the man who through his work with Medic Malawi has over the last 16 years transformed countless lives in Malawi has spent the last 48 hours in the Covid Intensive Care Unit at Kasungu District Hospital. For much of that time Peter has been reliant on oxygen cylinders to keep him alive. Oxygen cylinders that are in desperately short supply. Peter's family and friends have had to source oxygen themselves in order to help him.
The Intensive Care Unit at Kasungu District Hospital has eight beds and yesterday when I visited to see Peter through the window they had one oxygen cylinder. This is not a unique situation and is repeated across Malawi. We must act and act now to help as many people as we can.
One oxygen cylinder will last around eight hours for a critically ill patient. Our plan is simple: refill as many cylinders as we can for as long as we can to save as many lives as we can... but we need your help. It costs £70 to fill each oxygen cylinder. Help us to fill as many cylinders as we possibly can as they fight this pandemic. 

Desperate appeal for life saving oxygen in Malawi. Oxygen is a critical need for someone who is tackling Covid and is Oxygen dependent.

It's £70 to refill an oxygen cylinder in Malawi, with a 3 hr drive to make the refill. We are urgently raising funds to refill cylinders and save lives. 

 

Unfortunately patients are dying cause there is no oxygen available for them, 3 cylinders per day in some cases are needed. 

 

Please help us save lives for just £70. 

*All additional support above our campaign target will be used by Medic Malawi for the continuing life changing work.
