From the next week of June, when Abdul Haseeb Khan, a techie, along with his own uncle Syed Asim Abdullah (49) discovered that lots of people were dying at vehicles while waiting for admitted to hospitals. This led them to establish a helpline and also a facility that could provide oxygen to patients that had been covid positive or afflicted by Influenza Like Illness (ILI) and Severe Acute Respiratory Infections (SARI).

Khan and Abdullah, with the assistance of three Islamic hopes, transformed a college possessed by one of their relatives at Frazer Town, to an aviation and ambulance service together with a helpline.

They assert that theirs was the very first hydrogen lender in town to give free oxygen cylinders for individuals. Currently there are lots of such oxygen banks around Bengaluru, which were opened through mosques and educational associations.

The helpline center, which is situated in the Naasih Public faculty, supporting the Frazer Town mosque, was initially publicised by WhatsApp groups.

The center contains four ambulances and they’ve hauled greater than 100 patients. Having a bank of 300 oxygen tanks, the center has helped more than 900 patients at a month,” said Khan. Abdullah is a part of the Jamiat Ul-Ama Karnataka also helps to ensure that the center enables the needy.

“We’ve helped patients from all religions, castes, creed, guys, women, kids and the elderly. We’ve got approximately 20 personnel working in all 3 changes (six in every change ), round-the-clock. We’ve got a board of five to six physicians working at local hospitals and that donate their time, because of our helpline,” says Khan.

Before when they began, there was approximately 60 individuals waiting at the queue to get oxygen cylinders. “They’d be awarded tokens and based on how fast they desired the cylinders, we’d issue them. We gather a refund deposit of Rs 6000 for every cylinder, and if the individual’s household returns the air, we refund the sum in total. We have four kinds of cylinders,” says Khan.

Fortunately he had been able to handle before an ambulance arrived home. Shortly after this, my mom Rehana Begum developed breathlessness and her robes additionally began falling. We were scared we’d lose her since she isn’t maintaining good health. But we must learn more about the helpline, also obtained oxygen tanks out of them. We had been told how to utilize them in one and a half an hour, we could stabilise my mom.”
