TPAF Launches Indias largest Fundraise for PPE Kits in Partnership With Ketto and Doctors For You

PUNE, India, April 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- As India is confronting an extraordinary challenge of COVID-19 pandemic, organizations are joining hands to respond to this common threat. The Pravin Agarwal Foundation (TPAF) through a special initiative is connecting with over 100+ hospitals across India to provide Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) kits for medical staff. This is in association with Doctors For You, a pan India humanitarian organization, and Ketto, an online crowdfunding platform. TPAF, a non-profit, (www.tpaf.in), in a short span of 3 years, has been a front runner in facilitating paediatric liver transplants globally and to date, has enabled over 140 liver transplants for children from India and around the world. In the last 3 years, TPAF has facilitated more than INR 20 crore of funds towards the paediatric liver transplant and secured commitment of INR 100 crore dedicated to make paediatric liver care affordable, available and accessible for all.
The Coronavirus pandemic has engulfed the entire nation with over 10,000 positive cases. There is a huge Demand and Supply gap of PPEs across the country. Under TPAF's special initiative, this gap is being addressed by - identifying demand at hospital level, finalising the suppliers and arranging for logistics to cater to the demand and raising funds to source PPE kits. The founder of this organisation, Mr. Pravin Agarwal emphasises on having the correct approach to tackle the problem.
"As the Coronavirus pandemic engulfs the nation, it has proven to be a stressing time for all of us, and specifically for the medical community. While healthcare workers are working day-in and day-out to screen and treat patients, the shortage of PPE kits is exposing countless healthcare workers to the risk of getting infected by the Coronavirus. Through this initiative, we want to reach out to maximum hospitals, understand their requirements and ensure that this gap is bridged. While the medical community is fighting the battle at the forefront, the least we can do is support and safeguard them with the PPE kits," said Mr. Pravin Agarwal, Founder, TPAF.
