Sonu Sood and team save 20-22 COVID patients at ARAK hospital in Bengaluru in the middle of the night
Sonu Sood and his team worked in perfect coordination all Monday night to arrange for oxygen cylinders and could successfully save many lives
What Sonu Sood and his team did on Monday night is something that will leave you inspired and motivated. They worked the entire night to provide oxygen to ARAK hospital in Bengaluru from where they got an SOS call and had they not acted upon it promptly, at least 20-22 lives would have been lost because of the unavailability of oxygen cylinders. So here’s what happened.
Hashmath Raza from the team of Sonu Sood Charity foundation got a call from MR Satyanarayan, the inspector of Yelahanka Old Town about a situation at ARAK Hospital, which lost 2 lives as they didn’t have stock of oxygen. The team quickly got into action and at midnight arranged for one cylinder. They woke up all their contacts and informed them about the emergency situation, and people just offered all help. Within a few hours, 15 more oxygen cylinders were arranged by Sonu Sood’s team.
The incredible feat was possible with great teamwork, initiated by Hashmath Raza from Sonu Sood’s charity foundation, Karnataka team. He along with other team members like Radhika, Raghav Singhal, Raksha Som, RJ Amit and several others kept awake all night sourcing oxygen for the hospital. Had this team not come together to help through the night, at least 20 - 22 lives would have been lost by the morning.
Talking about the same, Sonu Sood said, “This was sheer teamwork and the will to help our fellow countrymen. As soon as we got the call from Inspector Satyanarayan, we verified it and got to action within minutes. The team spent the entire night not thinking about anything but just helping the hospital to get oxygen cylinders. Had there been any delay, many families could have lost their close ones. I want to thank everyone who helped in saving so many lives last night. It’s such actions by my team members that make me want to keep going on and trying to make a difference in the lives of people. I'm extremely proud of Hashmath who was in touch with me throughout and the entire team who helped them.”
The support from CPI Satyanarayan is indeed invaluable. He and the police handled the situation so well. At one point, a patient was to be shifted and there was no ambulance driver, so the police took the responsibility and drove the patient to the hospital.
Sonu Sood and his team make the impossible deed look possible. In the team, each person is given a particular job. One person is there to generate the leads; one person verifies these leads; one person deals with the municipal corporations for bed allotment; one person looks after the emergency SOS services; one person looks after the political and related department’s works, and thereby such an incredible feat gets achieved. Hats off to the dream team!
