"A hand fought best when it made a fist" - Guy Gabriel Kay.
The current crisis which we are facing needs no introduction. The COVID-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc worldwide, and our nation is fast becoming a victim. Healthcare workers are toiling to keep this under check and treat those affected, all while risking falling ill or carrying the infection home. The need of the hour is adequate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) so that we do not become links in this chain of transmission. Anyone can play their part in ensuring that the healthcare system remains intact. We humbly solicit donations to purchase masks and protective equipment kits for our brave healthcare workers. You could be saving your own family and friends with your kindness. Step up and donate! The nation needs you!
Why we are doing this?
The authorities are trying their best but it takes time due to the procedural setup, administrative hurdles, and supply chain logistics. Individual donors and group efforts are faster, more in touch with ground reality, and flexible in terms of handling logistics.
How you can help?
- If you have read this post and can help, do via a small donation.
- If you are in India and have 'stockpiled' hand sanitizers and N95 masks at home, please donate them to the closest hospital.
- If you can do none of these, at least stay at home so healthcare providers can do their jobs effectively and stop the already fragile healthcare system from imploding.
- Always remember one act of kindness today will come back tomorrow as several 'thanks' of gratitude. Stay safe, together we shall overcome.
As the requirement is high and masks and PPE are scarce due to this pandemic, we could procure only a few but we need more. So kindly help us to do more.
