3 June 2021, Bangkok – Buddharaksa Foundation and Dhanin Tawee Chearavanont Foundation, non-profits supported by DTGO, have teamed up in "1 Breath, 1 Life" to supply hospitals and healthcare units across the country with ventilators and equipment for the 3rd wave of the COVID-19 outbreak.
The foundations have delivered ventilators to 120 hospitals, with 25 in the Bangkok Metropolitan Region and 95 in the provinces. Deliveries were completed on 3 June. The foundation had an initial goal of raising 40 million baht.
Partners and supporters gave donations totaling 50,385,000 baht during 27 April – 26 May 2021. The funds were used to purchase 171 machines, including 48 ventilators for critically ill patients and 123 BiPAP/high-flow devices.
Buddharaksa Foundation has also partnered with LIFEiS and Ahriyavraromp Foundation to launch the “Pay It Forward” campaign, which has been providing further ventilators to hospitals short of equipment since 3 June.
