Sewa said that a planeload of medical equipment have reached New Delhi marking yet another milestone in its efforts to supply much-needed medical equipment to India to help the country fight the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sandeep Khadkekar, vice president, Marketing & Fund Development, Sewa International, said, “I consider it to be a great privilege to be present here as a Sewa International representative at the San Bernardino Airport on this occasion to send oxygen concentrators to India by air.”

For this, Sewa partnered with Another Joy Foundation to help in transporting lifesaving supplies to India.
