India faces a devastating and deadly second wave of COVID-19, with the world's highest number of cases.
A catastrophe is unfolding in India as hospitals run out of oxygen and thousands succumb to the second wave and deadly variant of COVID-19. Hospitals in and around the Indian capital of Delhi report an increase in the demand for oxygen despite commitments to step up supplies.
The current wave is supremely contagious, and affecting the most vulnerable - especially those who cannot afford access to life's most basic necessities.
People are dying as they wait for oxygen and medicine. Without help, many more people could fall prey to this deadly virus.
$100 – Could help deliver emergency oxygen to vulnerable people struggling to breathe.
$200 – Could help deliver food packs to two vulnerable families within remote, impoverished communities.
$500 – Could help deliver clean and safe drinking water in impoverished communities.
Experts warn the COVID-19 crisis in India could worsen with fears that the daily cases could reach half a million cases per day in the coming weeks.
In addition to our Ramadan response, Penny Appeal Australia is working with local partners on the ground to distribute urgent oxygen machines to support response efforts in overwhelmed hospitals.
Vulnerable and poor families within impoverished communities urgently need our support even more so now, as the resources become scarce due to the impact of the second wave of COVID-19.
Together, we can stop the spread and protect families from the devastation.
Penny Appeal Australia is working fast to reach as many Palestinians in need through the distribution of urgent food packs, hygiene kits and medical supplies.
We can't do it alone.
Help us save lives in the final days of Ramadan, and maximize your rewards.
