The SRO Kashmir Foundation, initially a small trust focused on local needs, has matured into a comprehensive crisis-management organization. Originating from the compassionate efforts of the Srinagar Samaritans, it has garnered widespread support, evolving into a welfare entity that spans the entire region of Kashmir. Its dedication to aiding those in distress and the impoverished has been realized. Over its 17-year history, the NGO has profoundly impacted the community, providing relief to those affected by the 2005 earthquake and leading recovery efforts during the 2014 floods.

With the onset of the pandemic in 2020, the NGO swiftly became a pillar of support for the community under lockdown. The influx of altruistic individuals bolstered its capacity, establishing it as a prominent welfare organization. Its commitment to urgent care, particularly during nocturnal hours, offered a glimmer of hope to those facing emergencies. Anticipating the COVID-19 crisis, the team, with expert guidance, formulated an effective response strategy. Embodying the principle that adversity reveals true character, SRO Kashmir remained vigilant in confronting the pandemic’s challenges. By mobilizing resources and personnel, the NGO was instrumental in rescuing numerous individuals from dire circumstances. Initiatives like “Food for Poor” and “Oxygen Kashmir” emerged as critical lifelines during these difficult times. The organization manages an extensive inventory of over 275 oxygen concentrators and 750 high-flow oxygen cylinders, alongside 65 NIV machines (BiPAP & CPAP), Automatic Infusion Machines, State-of-the-art "Cough Assist" Machines for CA patients, Battery powered Portable Oxygen Concentrators, High Flow Nasal Cannula Equipment, Holter Monitoring Machines, ECG Machines, Adjustable Hospital Beds, Wheel Chairs, Inflatable Mattrasses and host of other essential equipment, apparatuses, implements and paraphernalia, providing essential support to patients at home and in hospitals, thereby alleviating the strain on local healthcare facilities. Currently, more than 150 patients benefit from the NGO’s oxygen support, with this number having exceeded 400 daily during the pandemic’s peak. The NGO’s ambulances traverse vast distances to transport CKD patients to Dialysis centres, offering this service at no cost. Additionally, the distribution of approximately 6000 food kits to 5000 families in need has integrated the NGO into Kashmir’s broader poverty alleviation framework.

SRO Kashmir has earned the community’s trust, becoming a reliable resource that’s readily accessible via a toll-free number: 18001022146. The organization handles numerous calls daily through this line and mobile phones, with call volumes having surged to over 700 per day during the pandemic’s height. Prioritizing life-saving measures was paramount during the subsequent viral waves.

The NGO continues to set benchmarks and pursue ambitious goals. It maintains transparency by publicly sharing audit reports on social media, showcasing its adept handling of emergencies and urgent requests with both compassion and competence.

The inclusion of professionals has further solidified the organization as a beacon of hope in challenging times.

The transformation from SRO Srinagar to SRO Kashmir marks a significant progression.
