24/7 Covid SOS calls

Fourth-year engineering student Kaushik Raj attends COVID SOS calls for almost 21 hours a day, to help more than 3,000 people so far.

The Delhi-based student says that sleeping makes him feel guilty, especially when he thinks about all the missed or unattended SOS calls. Sleeping only 3 hours a day, he spends the rest helping strangers procure medical essentials like oxygen cylinders, ventilators, hospital beds, etc.

He and his team of 60 volunteers receive more than 200 calls a day per person.

I request you and the editorial board to kindly assign a journalist to further pursue this story in detail.

This will spread awareness in the minds of the citizens of our nation towards the financial and social issues faced by the underprivileged and encourage them to play an active role towards contributing in such efforts by putting in their resources, time and energy for a cause.

Moreover, the increased attention upon this campaign will allow the foundation to gather more funds to make a greater impact. I am certain that the campaigning for this projects’ funds will gain traction from all people sensitive towards the consequences such as hunger and lack of facilities faced by the underprivileged due to the pandemic

. People who are concerned and looking for opportunities to contribute towards a meaningful cause in this difficult time will also willingly support.
