Funds are required for the repair and maintenance of oxygen concentrators. When it is difficult for a person to breathe and only extra oxygen can save him/her from suffocation, it is scary and cruel to ask this person to wait in line to receive the device, because there is no serviceable one in stock now. To help everyone who applies, we regularly buy new devices and hand those that can still last more than a year (after a worn part is replaced or zeolite substance that filters oxygen is restored) over to repair.
In our fund we have an oxygen support program for more than 7 years. More than 150 devices have been collected during this time and are on the fund’s balance sheet now. It is clear that many of them need restoration after several years of uninterrupted operation. When the need for the concentrator disappears, it is returned to us for disinfection and replacement of filters and tubes. There is often a need for partial or major repairs. Following the device repair, it is returned to the warehouse and sent to the next user. New appeals from families where someone suffers from oxygen deficiency due to severe pneumonia, cancer, cystic fibrosis or covid are constantly coming. In the fund, they can get free use of equipment that will provide the body with oxygen instead of damaged lungs. This has been happening in a circle for 5-10 years: that's how much one concentrator can serve and save people from suffocation if it is correctly operated and has regular service.
We kindly ask you to assist in paying the bills of the fund for the repair of oxygen equipment. The masters who help us to extend the life of concentrators deserve timely payment for their work. And people need to get help on time.
