INDIA IS IN A STATE OF EMERGENCY.
Please help us respond to the urgent crisis right now. 100% of proceeds raised on this page for the next 4 weeks will be directed to our emergency COVID relief work in India.
We are heartbroken by the news coming out of India right now. The scale of devastation is unimaginable, particularly in Maharashtra - the epicenter of the pandemic - where we have worked for the last 8 years. The last few days have seen over 400,000 cases a day - with now 20 million cases in India. Oxygen is running out, hospitals are overcrowded and each day more and more lives are lost. As an organization whose roots are in India, we need to respond to the need NOW.
We are responding to the vast needs by pairing with local organizations in Bangalore, Delhi and Mumbai to:
convert a medical clinic into a COVID testing and vaccination centre for families who currently have no access to either
provide critical medical assistance to families
prepare and distribute emergency food kits to 200 families
distribute 40,000 bars of soap to public hospitals who have run out of their own supply
provide financial assistance to families to transport relatives to the hospital
help cover medical bills of families who have lost income
provide bereavement stipends to families who have lost loved ones
