The situation in India is critical. Oxygen has become a luxury commodity. COVID is spreading like fire and the county is struggling to have their nationals’ health needs covered. We want to help so badly. Some of our designers and many of our manufacturers are there and we can see the impact. It is real and desperate. The images on TV wrung my heart. And the country seems to collapse as the numbers are so high. Customs & logistic operations are suffering and make private assistance close to impossible.
So, we thought to share with you some resources that can be used to send donations and help to support India heal from the ongoing second wave of the pandemic from within. India’s healthcare resources are beyond exhausted and here are a few reliable sources that you can extend donations to help support India’s COVID relief during these tough times. If you know of other initiatives, please reach out, we will be happy to add them too.
Very importantly, please feel free to share and invite your friends and family to read this article. Even if they can not donate, they can share it and their friends might be able to help. You never know!
