Urgent Medical Aid Needed in Nepal

The Red Cross in Nepal and our contacts on the ground have asked UNITED SIKHS to help supply medicine and 25,000 urgently-needed blood collection bags (empty bags that will later be used to store blood for individuals in need of blood transfusions).
Medicines Needed:
Life saving medicines such as Injection Adrenaline, Injection Succinylcholine, Injection Nor-adrenaline , Atropine , Anesthesia, and Injection Dopamine are already out of stock in most of the major retailers. Nepal doesn’t manufacture injection (IV) products (mostly also used in surgery and emergencies), except one manufacturer with a limited band of the product. Hence, the majority of such emergency drugs are rapidly becoming out of stock. Hospitals are also running very low on labor-inducing drugs.
