1000 Additional Covid-19 Critical Care Beds To Urgently Scaleup Capacity of Hospitals Across Delhi

About YouWeCan

The YouWeCan Foundation (registered as Yuvraj Singh Foundation) is a non-profit organization established by cricketer and cancer survivor Yuvraj Singh, after recovering from cancer.

Over the past 8 years, the organization has worked extensively in the healthcare sector with a focus on cancer care in India, impacting over 350,000 people through its various cancer initiatives.

With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic last year, the organization diverted its resources in March & April 2020 towards creating awareness about COVID-19 and distributing over 1 million hygiene kits to over 14 states across the country.

Currently we are working towards rapidly scaling up the critical care hospital capacity in Delhi NCR with a vision to expand to other parts of the country in Phase 2 and 3.

We also worked closely with the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, UNICEF & WHO on running multiple COVID-19 awareness campaigns throughout the year.


We intend to rapidly scale up the critical care hospital capacity in Delhi by setting up 1000 additional oxygenated beds having 50% BiPAP & 10% Ventilator enabled beds for the critical care of COVID-19 patients in the next 15 - 45 days, thereby increasing the total number of oxygenated beds in Delhi by 5.3%.

Key Developments

These beds will be setup in 10-20 different hospitals across Delhi NCR, with the goal of urgently scaling up the existing capacity of each of the selected hospitals by up to 10%, as such an increase can be managed by existing manpower and resources.

Our role will be limited to setting up oxygenated beds and other essential equipment. The facility will be operated and administered by the hospitals.

We intend to setup 10 – 20 such facilities.
