UK Causes supporting the Covid-19 Crisis in India
About this Giving Opportunity
India is facing a massive healthcare catastrophe as the world’s worst COVID-19 outbreak ravages the country. Over a three-week period in April, case counts tripled and deaths mounted. By May 6, the disease had claimed more than 230,000 lives and infections were surging past 400,000 every day. Overwhelmed hospitals have been turning patients away as they run out of oxygen, beds, ventilators and ambulances. Many deaths have gone unreported as people go home to die or are left on their own without help.
The humanitarian catastrophe in India has galvanized global support, and aid is now rushing to the stricken country. However, with a population of 1.4 billion, India needs a massive effort to bring the crisis under control. This includes vital oxygen, medical supplies, emergency teams to treat the sick and suffering, and vaccines to offer the hope that the country will rise above the immediate crisis. When you donate to this giving opportunity, you will be helping to bring an end to the outbreak and restore an entire nation on to its path to recovery. India needs your help today.
