Corona had wreaked havoc in Nashik district during the second wave of the Pandemic from February to April.
This was the time when oxygen beds were not available to patients in private or government hospitals.
Some youths from Nashik came together and set up Yuvraj Shrimant MP Sambhaji Raje Chhatrapati Relief Center and purchased 200 oxygen cylinders.
Through this initiative patients who could not get an oxygen bed or who were traveling in an ambulance to get an oxygen bed were given free oxygen cylinders on the spot and their lives were saved.
Till date as many as 400 patients benefitted from this service.
Tushar Jagtap, head of the center and social activist from Nashik, gives more information in this regard
