Speaking

on
the
behalf

Mission
Oxygen,

Agarwal,
said,
“Looking
at
the
condition
of
Delhi,
Mumbai
and
other
states
has
engulfed
us
with
the
feeling
of
helplessness.
We
were
just
wondering
what
can
be
done.
Then
we
realized,
it
is
the
lack
of
oxygen,
people
were
dying
from.
This
motivated
us
and
drove
us
to
come
up
with
this
idea.
Initially,
we
were
a
small
group
which
now
grew
up
to
around
150
entrepreneurs
from
Delhi
NCR.
We
received
support
for
the
cause
from
around
the
world,
which
has
enabled
us
to
procure
more
than
6000
concentrators
for
the
cause.”

already
garnered
donations
from
people
