Algeria oxygen emergency

These past few weeks, Algeria has been fighting Covid-19 third wave, worsened, according to Algeria Institut Pasteur, by Delta variant confirmed in almost 75% cases. Around Sétif and Skikda, in the east, and Tlemcen in the west, hospitals are overwhelmed and they run out of oxygen supplies. Oxygen is indeed crucial to help Covid-19 patients with breathing difficulties.

Medical staff need our help to help!

The situation is also critical for front-line Algerian medical workers. Since February 2020, 460 of them died, including 262 doctors, says public health national organization “Syndicat national des praticiens de la santé publique (SNPSP)”.

They still do their best to help sick people: all over the country, medical staff have indeed decided to come together and identify hospitals and medical facilities with oxygen emergencies.

They are not alone: Seed charity wants to urgently provide 1 500 oxygen concentrators (650 € unit) thanks to its ambassadors and donors. With a ten liters capacity, these machines will then be delivered to big and small cities thanks to local medical staff’s teamwork.

Total budget: 975 000 €
