 WHO is this fundraiser for?

The full proceeds of this fundraiser, which includes the ‘India Relief Raffle’ and the call to ‘Donate for COVID-19 Relief for India’, will be allocated in the form of aid through direct spending on medical aid and basic supplies such as FPP2 masks, PPE kits, oxygen concentrators/cylinders, oximeters, an ambulance, etc. 

The donations will benefit the community-led oxygen relief initiative in Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh, the newly erected hospital station in Maraghatu, Jharkhand, and Sphoorthi Foundation, a Hyderabad based foundation, distributing health care kits to marginalized communities. And they will be spent according to greatest needs.

 

WHY is this fundraiser organised?

Every four minutes, a person dies of COVID-19 in the national capital of New Delhi, India. The healthcare system is overloaded, and families are oftentimes required to find their oxygen supplies due to problems with the allocation of essential medical equipment. Some people are even required to personally and without any prior medical training care for their relatives within hospitals. According to journalist Kunal Purohit from Mumbai, the published estimates do not reflect the true extent of the current crisis.

India faces 350,000 new coronavirus cases per day (World Health Organisation). Every 4 minutes a person dies in Delhi (The Hindu).
