A COVID-19 outbreak is tearing across India right now. The situation is desperate. Over 300,000 people are being infected with COVID-19 every day. Hospitals are turning away patients because they are completely overwhelmed. Oxygen is in short supply. Deaths have surpassed 200,000 per day, and the tragic body count grows every day. Donate to our COVID-19 Crisis Appeal and help the most vulnerable children in India.
Our India COVID-19 Crisis Donation Appeal
The COVID-19 outbreak in India is affecting children right now. A donation to our COVID-19 crisis donation appeal can help protect the most vulnerable children.
India struggles to cope with the biggest crisis it has faced in modern history. Your donation will help our teams on the ground to:
- Supply children and families with COVID home-care kits which include oximeter (to monitor a person’s oxygen saturation), thermometer, steamer, face masks, hand sanitiser, Vitamin C tablets and Vitamin D3 sachets, paracetamol and cough syrup.
- Support for children whose parents or caregivers are affected by COVID-19, including counselling and psychosocial support
- Provide food and nutritional support to families whose livelihoods have been severely impacted by COVID-19
Around the world, COVID-19 has exposed the gap in treatment between the richest and poorest. The number of children living in poverty and hunger in India could soar by millions as a result of the surge in COVID-19 cases.
