The second wave of Covid-19 has shaken the healthcare system of India. With so many patients looking for critical care equipment, the healthcare infrastructure is struggling hard to cope. 

Indian diaspora in USA and other countries are coming together to help our nation in this hour of crisis. Medical supplies like oxygen concentrators are being procured and shipped by personal & group donations to hospitals, NGOs and relatives' families in need. Most times these shipments are paid for priority mail for delivery by air. Ironically after expedited shipment, these life-saving medical equipments are delayed at the Customs Department of Indian airports. 

We ask the Government of India to authorize Priority Customs Clearance to all Covid-19 related medical equipment and life-saving supplies. This will enable the shipments reach their destination at the earliest possible and help save lives.
