The second wave of COVID-19 has hit India hard. The number of cases have risen exponentially within a week. With very high density of population, the healthcare system is struggling to keep up. With more than 2,200 deaths just yesterday (23rd April) and more than 2 million active cases, this second wave requires an immediate response. Sewa and its organizations worldwide were one of the first to swing into action on the ground.
So how can we help ?
Sewa's volunteers were active in Canada, India & Nepal during the 1st wave in 2020. Currently during the 2nd wave 500 and growing volunteers are serving in various forms, from a digital helpdesk, information campaigns around Plasma donation, distributing medical essentials to old-age homes, orphanages, arranging oxygen concentrators for the sick and at relief centres and cremation/last rites for the departed.
Sewa International India has a network of its organizations & volunteers across all provinces/states of India. Through this network we are setting up Covid Care Centres to provide isolation centres with sources of Oxygen. These centres will be manned by its volunteers. We also distribute 10,000 units of essentials' kits across the nation.
-CAD$ 600 for an oxygen concentrator. 200 oxygen concentrators have already been ordered by Sewa in India.
- CAD$ 26 for each family essentials' kit (Ration, Basic Medicines, Masks, Sanitizers etc)
- CAD$251 for Ration, Basic Medicines, Oximeter, Masks, Sanitizers etc. in community homes with 20-30 people, such as orphanages/old-age homes.
Sewa Canada International also plans to help setup and contribute to efforts to set up Oxygen plants and distribution system for medical oxygen at hospitals and Covid relief centres
