Citizens at work: Mumbai couple collecting unused meds from recovered Covid patients

May 12, 2021 21:03 IST | By Editorji News Desk

A doctor couple from Mumbai has started Meds For More, a citizen initiative to collect unused medicines from Covid-19 recovered patients and donate it to primary health care centres in rural areas.

Dr Marcus Ranney and Dr Raina from Cuffe Parade collected 20kg of unused medicines in just 10 days and have partnered with multiple non-government organisations for distribution.

Along with medicines like antibiotics, steroids, vitamins, antacids among others, which are being prescribed to Covid patients, the couple is also collecting equipment like oximeters and thermometers. Al medicines are segregated and checked for expiry dates.

At present they are sending consignments to Maharashtra and Gujarat but they aim to gradually expand to other states as well.

Those interested in donating can contact via mail at medsformoreindia@gmail.com or through their Instagram page @medsformore.
