There are millions of less fortunate people who are struggling to make ends meet and provide food and essentials for their families during these difficult times.

In 2020, IDRF donated $127,000 to India, $10,000 to Nepal, and $67,155 to the USA to provide relief kits to thousands of people hit hard by the pandemic. The situation in India became a lot worse in 2021 than it was last year.
