As you are probably aware, India is currently suffering from record-breaking outbreaks of Covid-19. Shortages of oxygen, PPE, and other lifesaving supplies are devastating response efforts, and those with the virus face considerable hardship in the days and weeks to come.
While, first, we keep our family, friends, and colleagues in India in our thoughts, we also struggle to know just how we can help. There will be other challenges to come, but for those eager to help right now, we wanted to share a few organizations whose work we support and have confidence in.
Doctors for You (Vistex Hospital) – Those in the US may make donations via vistexhospital.org. 100% of contributions will be passed along to DFY. You may also make contributions directly to Doctors for You at doctorsforyou.org.
SEWA International is currently holding a Facebook fundraiser to acquire oxygen concentrators. You can learn more about their efforts at https://sewausa.org/Covid-19-Support-Bharath-Fundraiser
