Help Elderly People in these difficult times. They need us.
Each 300 rupees donation will buy one elderly person a Corona Prevention Kit. This kit contains a face mask to prevent the virus from entering the respiratory tract, 4 liquid handwash and 3 soaps to prevent transmission through hands. Please donate to help the elderly stay strong in this period of the pandemic outbreak and prevent the spread of Coronavirus to them. These people who are aged, who are more at risk compared to the rest of the community, are also not in a position to afford, say, for instance, a mask, a hand sanitiser and equip themselves against Coronavirus. Belonging to the marginalised sections of the society, these elders are in need of our help to be able to survive this pandemic, and come out hale and hearty by following all precautionary and hygiene measures.
According to worldometer calculations, the death rate for people aged 60 and above is the highest of about 32%. We should all be thinking about our elderly family members and relatives and do everything we can to protect them over the next few months.
