Dear Global Givers,
It is with deep gratitude and sincere appreciation that we write to you to share an update on how your support enabled us to reach out to some of the most vulnerable communities during the second wave of COVID-19 in India. With your generous support towards iPartner India’s COVID-19 Emergency Relief Campaign, we reached out to frontline workers who needed emergency medical treatment, provided families with food and medical supplies and purchased 10 oxygen concentrators to support critical patients. The outpouring of generosity and support from Global Givers has been phenomenal.
As the second wave of Covid-19 swept through India, iPartner India initiated the COVID Emergency Relief Campaign to raise funds to support resource-poor families and vulnerable communities who needed urgent medical assistance, food and medical supplies and oxygen concentrators for critically ill patients.
India recorded well over 350,000 positive cases each day - the highest figures recorded in any country at any point during the pandemic. The second wave in recent months has overwhelmed the healthcare system, leaving hospitals struggling to cope and critical drugs and oxygen in short supply. India is only the third in the world to record more than 300,000 deaths - behind the US and Brazil but the real number of fatalities might be much higher as many deaths are not officially recorded.
During the second wave of COVID crisis, iPartner India started the COVID Emergency Relief Campaign. Racing against time, we were able to reach out to our partners on the ground who critically needed our support to provide ration, medical assistance, oxygen concentrators and basic essentials to vulnerable communities to survive the second wave.
With your support, we have successfully distributed ration to these families along with the required medicines and nutrition supplements and oxygen concentrators.
Having totally failed to prepare for the second wave despite the warnings from experts, now officials and health authorities are saying that a possibility of a third wave in India is inevitable.
To all of us at iPartner India, YOU are our real heroes and we THANK YOU for helping us reach out to those people who desperately need our help.
We could not have done this without your support.
With deep gratitude,
Team iPartner India
