Welcome To IIT Delhi
Excellence Foundation (IITDEF)

Message from Sanjiv Goyal, President

We have lost some lives due to Covid 19; let’s keep humanity alive.

It’s my humble appeal to support India.

My name is Sanjiv Goyal, and I am president of the IIT Delhi Excellence Foundation.
Four months ago, I introduced the prime minister of India, Narender Modi @ IIT2020, to 17000 people. Today I am pleading with everyone to support India. A severe second wave of COVID-19 is sweeping across India, and the country’s healthcare system is overwhelmed. The number of new cases has crossed 327,000 every day. The death toll has touched 2700 on April 27, 2.6+ million covid patients in the country, hospitals struggle to accommodate new patients, and an acute shortage of hospital beds, ventilators, and oxygen.

India needs help right away, and many people around the world are asking how we can help!

Our top priority is to quickly acquire oxygen concentrators and ship them to India to save lives.

Do you have the know-how or technology to generate oxygen, please DM me. I will connect you with the right contacts on the ground.

You can donate to your favorite NGOs or www.iitdef.com. www.paypal.com/us/fundraiser/charity/2262942

Call your friends in India.
I am working with some of my IIT Alumni. We will share the list of NGOs supported by our alumni.

We have started IITians in Action – Covid Team.
