India now has the third highest Covid-19 cases in the world. With a population of 1.4 billion people, suppressing the pandemic always seemed like an insurmountable task.
There are now over 700,000 confirmed cases with over 20,000 reported deaths. There are many reports of people being turned away from hospitals as a direct result of the fragile healthcare system and rising numbers of cases. As you can see from the chart, India is very far away from even beginning to flatten the curve.
HOPE’s small hospital has stepped up and is now treating Covid-19 patients from the streets and slums in a bid to save lives. Will you join the fight? Below you can purchase PPE to keep our hospital staff safe as they battle on the front-line. You can also donate towards the running cost of the new COVID-19 ward. Thank you for your amazing support to date.
