India is facing a deadly second wave of COVID-19. More than a million cases were recorded over three days alone, and thousands have died. Hospitals and medical facilities are running out of oxygen and ICU beds, with patients left outside hospitals waiting for care.
Oxfam is responding to the crisis in India, distributing and installing medical equipment at health centers, distributing PPE to frontline health workers, and providing food and cash to meet people’s immediate needs. We are responding in 5 states across India, engaging with health facilities on the ground in those states. Given our permanent presence, we will also be able to meet the evolving needs of the people.
We must act immediately to take on the second, more severe wave of COVID-19 in India. Your support is vital – donate now.
