Story

At the onset of the pandemic last year, you helped Migrant workers from across the country reunite with their families safely. When migrants, frontline workers and vulnerable sections were facing a dire need for protective gear and equipment, your donations provided hope and relief to those who needed it the most.  

As reported on April 24, India has recorded more than 3.5 lakh new cases of Covid 19. This snowballing curve of positive cases and fatalities, lack of life-saving equipment like oxygen cylinders, essential medicines, protective gear etc is having a crumbling effect on our healthcare infrastructure.

In response to this, we are re-launching our mission to protect our brothers and sisters in need by getting them access to medicines, oxygen cylinders, help charitable hospitals, Covid care centres and healthcare workers across the country to amplify their efforts.

Your contribution will help critical patients, hospitals and Covid Care Centres with life-saving equipment. It will provide oxygen concentrators, refill oxygen cylinders and help Covid Care Centres and charitable hospitals with supplies of N95 Masks, PPE Kits, sanitisers and other resources.

(For all donor queries around this cause, please reach out to Milaap at feedback@milaap.org)

Join the mission to support critical Covid patients and health workers. Your contributions will help save lives and restore hope.

3) Why are the exchange rates lower than real-time values?
We assure you that exchange rate you see  at the time of donation is purely notional - funds raised in all foreign currencies (we support around 12+ international currencies apart from INR)  are held in our US custodian account and transferred as $ when the organizers request the same.

The exchange rate they receive in Rupees is based on that date of receipt of funds through their bank. For example, current (27-04-2021) notional FX rate on site is  52 INR / SGD whereas the equivalent  FX rate at the time of transfer (on 27-04-2021) to recipient is around ~ 55 INR / SGD

The notional value of keeping a slightly lower exchange rate for display is to ensure that fundraisers don't suffer from a shortage should there be a fluctuation/volatility in currency movements. So we are conservative with our display. Please note that we make no money directly or indirectly in FX arbitrages or floats associated with it.
