Projects: Help poor Indian students to get an education.
Millions of children worldwide have no access to vital resources such as food, clothing, education, and shelter. Education is one of the best ways to help disadvantaged children have a better future. Every child has the right to education, but unfortunately, many of them are trapped in the circle of poverty without education that can not turn their lives into success.
Please help us to enable education!
Every donation helps to change a life from the beginning.
Projects: Better Health Care
The people of India, south of India, suffer from poor health care:
●Approximately 85 million people live in Andhra and Telangana States
●Many below the poverty line families don't have access to health facilities and medical care.
The LAMB supports better health care in these states. The focus is on people who do not yet have access to medical care. We attach great importance to sustainable, socially responsible approaches and work closely with local organizations.
Please help us reduce child mortality, HIV, etc., through improved health care.
Help with your donation!
We are always looking for ways to improve the situations through feedback and ideas, and we are keen to recruit volunteers to help build new resources that will support educators and learners.

Sponsor for Education:
With the support of partners and donors, we want to set up schools and community libraries. Our work is far from done, and a long line of institutions right across our states have asked for our help. The young people lack access to the resources that will help them open their minds to their power to transform their society.
The LAMB'S COVID Relief Fund :
India's deadly second wave of coronavirus has set off an earnest call to action.
Nearly a year to date, we at The LAMB set up our India Covid Relief Fund to provide relief to the extensive philanthropic disaster revealed when the pandemic began reestablishing the Fund relaunching our Covid missions.
Dejectedly, our responsibility in delivering relief to communities during the coronavirus crisis is not done, as cases and hospitalizations recapitulate to glide in a mortifying second wave of Covid-19.
But this time around, it is the elusive virus that is inducing the primary distress, moderately than the stratagems to control it – like the socio-economic crisis, the lockdown triggered 12 months ago. We have started India COVID Relief Fund – 2 to bring our collective humanity together and raise funds for the most critical needs caused by the prevailing situation.
Calls for help:
Amidst the recall of last year's scarcities in the health infrastructure still active in people's minds – and Covid cases nearly three times the peak of the first wave – we have got cries for help from numerous we had sponsored, including charitable hospitals, healthcare, and other nonprofits giving humanitarian aid.
Grim statistics such as one person dying of Covid-19 complexities every three minutes in Andhra and Telangana are heart-wrenching. The states have propelled us into starting a mission to assist a confounded health infrastructure where patients are grappling for beds, oxygen, and prescribed medicines to treat coronavirus infection. Furthermore, health workers themselves are severely affected, trying to deal with a deluge of patients and protect themselves and their families from falling sick.
Including this mission, we will be petitioning funds for healthcare organizations to collaborate with state governments to quickly put up Covid care centers in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana states and other badly affected metros and fill some gaps in oxygen supply in hospitals. And for PPE kits, N-95 masks, and sanitisers for our exhausted healthcare warriors.
We have also activated our mission to accommodate meals and ration kits to neighborhoods struggling to make ends meet.
A recent report by a think tank using World Bank data suggests that poverty in India has doubled.
With the current crisis creating fear and uncertainty among this vulnerable masses, whose earning has been irregular over the last year, NGOs are now reporting widespread hunger and the need to feed families and stop the catastrophic consequences of malnutrition among children and adults.
Join us to support the vulnerable:
So as we restart India COVID Relief Fund – 2 with aid from a Steering Committee and Advisory Board to provide complete transparency, we are looking at you to come forward and donate or join this giving collective.
Last year, by September 2020, with charitable support from individual donors, philanthropic foundations, and corporate houses alike, we raised funds, which served the needy in their hour of need. Let's come together again to fight the second wave of this deadly virus, flatten and curve and help our fellow citizens through this difficult time.

Project Oxygen Plants :
Oxygen - HELP the Patients breathe!
Help patients breathe as they battle COVID. Donate to boost oxygen supply Create 10X impact. Provide oxygen to help India breathe again.
At the onset of the pandemic last year, when hospitals were suffering a dire need for protective gear and equipment, we at the LAMB had responded in record time to stand firm beside our saviors, our healthcare heroes. And we were able to fill the gap by raising funds through this mission and helped those who were risking their lives to save ours.
As reported on April 22, India crossed the 3 lakh mark of new single-day cases, the highest tally in the world since the pandemic began. This increasing burden of COVID-positive patients, 2,000+ recorded fatalities per day, lack of life-saving equipment like oxygen cylinders and concentrators, ventilators, and Bipaps is crippling our healthcare infrastructure. Oxygen supply – the need of the hour. The image of many patient families crying and crowding outside hospitals desperate to get urgent medical help for their kith and kin is etched in our memories. Thousands have lost their loved ones to this growing crisis. There is a critical and immediate need for oxygen in hospitals and COVID Care Centres that our NGOs across the country have been registering with us.
In response to this, we are relaunching our health mission to support critical patients by Providing oxygen: By setting up oxygen generation plants in hospitals/COVID facility compounds in the A.P.and Telangana states. A 5,000-litre capacity plant costs ₹6cr and can support 650 people per day by providing oxygen concentrators that use oxygen from the air and convert it to medical-grade oxygen. A patient in need of a concentrator needs to be on it for 5-7 days. One oxygen concentrator costs ₹55,000. By providing oxygen cylinders that help a person in need of oxygen support for 5-7 days. The B-type (1,500L) oxygen cylinder costs ₹15,000 while the D-type (6,000L) costs ₹25,000.
The manufacture is restricted to certain states and transporting oxygen cylinders from one state to another requires specific vehicles which are not very widely available in the given situation. Refilling AB-type cylinder costs ₹800/refill, and D-type costs ₹2,500/refill. Providing life-saving equipment: By providing Bipaps which are also known as non-invasive ventilation. One Bipap costs approximately ₹60,000. By providing ventilators which are priced at ₹5 lakh per item.
Join the mission to support critical COVID patients, charitable hospitals, and COVID Care Centres. Your contribution will help them fight COVID safely and more effectively.
