Children undergoing cancer treatment and their care givers have to visit hospitals regularly and must be given complete protection through PPE - personal protective equipment like gloves, masks etc. They are already immunity compromised and with more and more general wards turning into isolation wards at hospitals, these poor kids might get exposed to COVID-19.
Help India Foundation Trust, India’s National Society For Change For Childhood Cancer, with a presence in Delhi-NCR, is seeing a serious need for:
1. Providing accommodation alternatives and food supplies for extended stay to patient families due to postponement of routine therapy in hospitals.
2. Providing reimbursement for diagnostic tests undertaken locally by patient families as their hospital visits have been postponed.
3. Ambulances to take patients across state borders as necessary.
We are looking to raise a sum of INR 1000000 (75% Amount for program Implementation, 20% Activities for raising funds, 5% for Admin, and other costs) to cover the same. As little as INR 3000 will go a long way in stemming the tide. All donations get 80G tax exemption.
