Our donors have been asking how they can help with the acute COVID-19 crisis in India, which is facing the worst wave of the virus since the pandemic began. The nation has recently been seeing roughly 400,000 new cases per day, hospitals are turning away patients, and families are struggling to find oxygen for their loved ones. For those who want to help, below are some of the organizations we’ve vetted that are providing relief in India. If you are making grants to these organizations via MyNYCT, please indicate “India COVID relief” in the voucher message.
