Save Lives in Delhi

'Whoever saves one (life) - it is as if he had saved humanity'. [The Noble Qur’an, 5:32]

In India, over 300,000 people are being infected by coronavirus every day. India's health system is now on the brink of collapse. Patients are being sent home while they still desperately need oxygen, because hospitals are at full capacity and there simply aren’t enough resources to support everyone. In Delhi alone, someone is dying from coronavirus every four minutes.

This crisis is devastating families who are already vulnerable. They are being forced to care for their loved ones at home, even though they are completely unequipped to treat patients of this deadly pandemic. Meanwhile, they must choose between isolating themselves for everyone's safety, or going out to work so they don't starve.

Our partners are working with a clinic in Delhi to provide oxygen concentrators to families who are infected or recovering from coronavirus. These machines filter pure oxygen from the air to support patients who are struggling to breathe. We are delivering this equipment directly to people's homes, working in consultation with healthcare experts to prioritise those most in need of life-saving oxygen. We are also distributing food parcels to isolating families to support them through this difficult time.

Our partners urgently need your help to provide this vital aid to struggling families. Your support will be a lifeline for India during this unprecedented crisis. Give now to provide life-saving oxygen and food to vulnerable patients.
