Dear fellow Maulanians,
We are all aware of the Covid catastrophe going on in our parent country, India, right now. Each one of has been directly or indirectly already affected by this disaster. Our doctors are struggling to provide something as basic as oxygen to their patients, and worse, even themselves when in need. Many of us have already volunteered our time, money and efforts to support delivery of oxygen in various ways to India.
In this context MAMCOAANA received an impassioned request for O2 concentrators for doctors from Dr. Hansraj Baweja. Dr. Baweja is a MAMC alumnus, former president of Delhi Medical Association (DMA) and a leader in Indian Medical Association (IMA).
In the past 72 hours frantic activity went on behind the scenes to honor this request. The MAMCOAANA EC met and felt it was our duty to step up as an organization to help our own across the globe.
We, on behalf of MAMCOAANA, are pleased to report that within this short time we have collaborated with IMA, bought 100 oxygen concentrators and have organized shipment out for physicians in Delhi and MAMC alumni. The distribution and redistribution will be overseen by Dr. Baweja from IMA. The MAMCOAANA fund, whose life blood is your contributions, has been utilized for this task, given the nature and urgency of the request.
We write not just to thank you for your contributions in the past to MAMCOAANA, but to ask you to please donate further to MAMCOAANA, our alumni association in USA. This is a marathon and not a sprint, we need to replenish and build our funds to continue doing the good job. MAMCOAANA is a tax-exempt organization, so please donate.
Regards all and keep safe,
Dr. Ashish Dua (President)
Dr. Bhushan Pandya (Treasurer and Past President)
