Amid the chaos of the COVID-19 pandemic, Mumbai-based Shahnawaz Shaikh’s friend lost a close relative due to a lack of oxygen. The unfortunate incident pushed Shahnawaz to sell his own SUV to start an oxygen supply scheme. This scheme has helped more than 6,000 people to date, earning him the moniker of the ‘Oxygen Man of India’. This year, Shahnawaz has set up a control room under his organisation, the Unity and Dignity Foundation (UDF). His team at UDF receives more than 600 calls every day and has been efficiently helping coordinate and provide oxygen cylinders to people across Mumbai.
