The Paralympic Committee of India (PCI) has donated Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) kits to the Delhi State government, contributing in India’s fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
PCI secretary general Gursharan Singh said the PCI donated 500 PPE kits to the Delhi government on Saturday and is ready with 1,000 kits which will be given to the central government on Monday. “The PCI donated 500 PPE kits to Delhi government. We gave the kits to AAP Rajya Sabha MP N. D. Gupta on Saturday,” Singh told PTI .
Singh was accompanied by PCI Governing Board member Ashok Bedi to hand over the kits. The kits were manufactured in Bengaluru. “We are going to hand over 1,000 PPE kits to the union sports secretary on Monday as our donation to the central government,” he added.
Last month, the PCI staff donated one-day salary to the PM-Cares Fund.
The COVID-19 pandemic has so far killed more than 800 people in India.
