A few days ago, we posted a request on social media about the requirement for a BiPAP machine – Bilevel Positive Airway Pressure machine, which one of our patients needed, to breathe. It is expensive; and not many can afford it. We asked if anyone could donate one.

Mr Shyam Gurung in Pune reads it, contacts us and sends across a sparingly used machine that his mother in law once needed.

Very glad to report that the machine is now being used at home by the patient. Thank you very much, Mr Shyam Gurung!

How many people have old assistive devices of various kinds lying unused at home, gathering rust and dust? If only they could be connected with a local palliative care or rehabilitation unit, such huge transformation could be made to many lives.
