Share post:


From Our Correspondent

 TURA: Lifeline Project of the Rotary Club of Tura that was recently launched is expected to immensely benefit patients who require dependence oxygen cylinders for recovery of their ailments.

As part of the project the club will provide oxygen cylinders to the needy patients at a subsidized rate of rs. 1200/- and there would be provision to take the cylinder to the patients house if so required.

The club has framed certain rules and regulations for hiring of the oxygen cylinder so that it reaches the beneficiaries.Demand for oxygen cylinders is high in any city or town and patients with serious health complications require use of it for days at a time. It is most required on patients who have lifetime complications from asthma and other lung diseases besides recuperation for surgery.

Since oxygen cylinders are primarily in hospitals and health centres, patients in need of it have to get themselves admitted to the institution for its use. With the availability of the cylinders through the lifeline project the journey and stay in a hospital will be immensely reduced for the needy patients.The relatives of patients keen to hire the cylinders have been asked to contact Life Line Pharmacy at Dermile, near the Tura CivilHospital.
