So far the CHD has helped 1,250 patients by providing free of cost oxygen cylinders, medicines, plasma and tele consultancy.

Announcing the launch of CHD, TAWET’s Chairman Mehdi Hasan Aini Qasmi said, “Although we are formally launching the CHD now, we have been working in the field since 25th April and since then have helped patients not only in Deoband but in Saharanpur, Muzaffarnagar, Shamli and Meerut as well. We have helped patients get admitted in hospitals, and have also provided patients with oxygen cylinders, medicines, plasma and tele consultancy.”

He added,”‘CHD has also been distributing masks and sanitisers. In addition, we are available 24 hours on 175573030 to help and guide the callers. Our help and advice are also available on WhatsApp on 73582209.”
