Every second in India, 4 new cases of Covid-19 are recorded with 2 new deaths per minute. Cases are surging by hundreds of thousands per day, hitting record peaks with health services completely overwhelmed.
People are left fighting for their lives. Hospitals and health centres across the country are unable to cope, with hospital beds, essential drugs and oxygen running out, even in large towns and cities. Relatives are desperately battling to find care or source oxygen cylinders to help treat loved ones at home.
Islamic Relief Canada is joining forces with UNICEF and bringing our community together to help save lives. Your support is critical to:
Your support today can help save the life of someone in India suffering from COVID-19.
Help provide urgent relief today. Every life deserves a chance.
In support of UNICEF, Islamic Relief Canada is helping deliver oxygen, COVID-19 vaccines and COVID-19 testing to India. UNICEF is working with local partners across India to speed up identification and treatment of cases and support critical health systems and capacity through this brutal second wave.
As a part of UNICEF’s leadership with ACT-A / COVAX they are ensuring global equitable access to the delivery of needed vaccines, therapeutics and diagnostics, while supporting the strengthening of health systems to provide a legacy for treatment of other diseases when COVID subsides.
This is why we have joined UNICEF to raise funds and do our part to help ensure the equitable distribution of the vaccine. Getting the world to the other side of COVID-19 will be one of the largest collective undertakings in human history.
But we are up to the challenge to do our part – because we know you are right there with us.
