India is experiencing a humanitarian crisis like no other. Our local partners work with some of the poorest and most marginalised members of the community. Northern states have been driving COVID-19 cases up with 50+ million devotees recently attending religious festivals. Hospital beds are overrun, oxygen is scarce and people are dying from COVID-19 at rates unseen elsewhere in the world. Bodies are being burned on highways as every crematorium is full, and despite all this, the peak is yet to come.
Why support this:
Diagnosed cases of COVID-19 sit above 20 million people with around 400,000 new infections per day. Our local partners are caring for families who have lost loved ones, who are treating their own sick family members at home and do not know what they will eat tomorrow. Most have lost their jobs and access to care and food has become an impossible task.
Food parcels and treatment packs will allow families to stay at home whilst COVID-19 continues to ravage their communities. They will provide an immediate lifeline in these desperate circumstances.
Because we have partners on the ground who we know and trust, we can ensure 100% of the funds donated will get to those who need it most and this life-saving assistance will be provided quickly.
$100,000 and guarantee we will send 100% of all funds donated.
Expected Life Change:
Disadvantaged families can self-isolate at home with access to care and food provisions
Seriously ill patients will receive home care and be monitored remotely
With adequate PPE, vaccinated staff and volunteers can assess and treat families who have COVID-19
