Climate Activist Licypriya Kangujam has hogged media limelight again for her noble initiative of fund raising Rs 47 lakh within 6 days to combat the nationwide COVID-19 pandamic.
She had started a fundraiser campaign called ‘India Needs Oxygen‘ Mission’ for importing oxygen concentrators and help poor COVID-19 infected patients. The concentrators will not be affiliated with any Government or Private hospitals or agencies. All oxygen concentrators to be directed to the needy patients who had not received any government assistance.

Kangujam has shared every detail of contributions she has obtained as well as she’s giving away on her social media handles to keep it transparent.
“10 pieces of 5L Oxygen Concentrator will reach India Flag of India in the next few days which costs around 50,000₹ per piece including shipping. Total 100 pieces ordered. I’m trying my best by spending my own savings and some from my awards received last year. Let’s hope for the best,” She wrote in a tweet sharing the pictures of the oxygen concentrators.
Kangujam is contributing from her own savings and awards she has received last year and also urged people to donate, as 100 pieces are not sufficient to cover the requirement.
