India is battling an unprecedented spike in coronavirus cases. Millions are suffering and in desperate need of food and basic essentials. There is an acute shortage of oxygen and other medical supplies for the patients. 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 today is a lot worse than it was last year.
During the tragic second wave, when the poor need your help more than ever, please continue your valuable support to IDRF. Your help will enable us to continue providing relief to those hit hardest by the pandemic.
How is IDRF helping?
During the second wave, IDRF is providing groceries, oxygen concentrators, ventilators, other medical supplies, managing vaccination centers and transporting people living in far flung areas to the vaccination centers. In addition to spreading awareness to prevent coronavirus and providing immediate medical help for patients, IDRF is also supporting a 100+ bed recovery center for those who no longer need hospitalization. To meet the current demands and to prepare for future waves of coronavirus, IDRF is also providing oxygen plants for small/medium hospitals.
IDRF is collaborating with its reliable and trusted partners in India and has provided relief to people in Gujarat, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Odisha, Tamil Nadu, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, and West Bengal, etc. and soon to Assam, Jharkhand, Punjab, and Rajasthan.
In order to optimize its resource utilization, IDRF is also supporting relief operations in India by other organizations in the USA, such as GWAPI and SEWA International.
