India is experiencing a devastating second wave of COVID-19 throughout the country and has seen more COVID cases in the last seven days than any other country with more than two million cases recorded in a week and 200,000 deaths overall. Hospitals in numerous cities are being pushed to the brink, oxygen supplies are dangerously low and makeshift funeral pyres burn day and night.
India needs us now to combat this crisis and provide relief support quickly so we are committing to donate up to $50,000 to get the relief efforts underway. We plan to partner with multiple validated organizations that are working hard at ground zero to provide COVID aid resources.
We are supplying Oxygen containers with support of a local NGO https://www.missionoxygen.org/ and have ordered containers to start to supply as soon as possible. Our priority is to provide to government hospitals first, and unfortunately we will consider to support individual requests later based on excess supply. To make a request please email us at email@example.com and we will consider on a priority basis. Please make a donation to this cause to provide COVID relief and to save lives. No help is small at this time of dire need. To know more and to answer your questions click here to visit our FAQ page - https://www.asha-jyothi.org/accordions/faq-covid19/ /a>
