We are heartbroken by the current situation in India, which we have been following closely. We are working with our team, organizations on the ground, and larger institutions to implement what is needed locally on the ground. We are also ramping up for the support that will be needed in the future. We are working hard to support the 1,000 rural communities we serve in Gujarat, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh & Rajasthan. We have identified the ways for the Desai Foundation to be of most service immediately, and for what will be needed in the future. Outlined below is our focus.
The US government has began the process to provide aide to India. We encourage you all to contact your local representatives to ensure that pressure leads to action. The US has vaccines, raw materials, pop-up hospitals, emergency supplies of O2 and other materials, etc that are urgently needed in India.
All donations made to the Desai Foundation for our efforts on the ground for COVID relief will be matched 100%.
The need is urgent and dire. And your support to join these efforts is crucial. We are also welcoming partners to join us at this table to make a swift and immediate impact. Our goal is to raise $250,000 in 2 weeks.
