The situation is grim. You can help.
India now faces the most deadly wave of the pandemic that the world has seen. With 400,000 new cases a day, the health system is overwhelmed. At one of our partner hospitals, there is a 90% positivity rate for COVID-19 among the staff. The situation is grim.
People you support and love are at a higher risk of contracting COVID-19. Many live with compromised immune systems. We cannot stand by. Will you join us and save a life?
As a billion people clamour for their jab, people living on the margins will struggle to access the much-needed COVID-19 vaccine. Due to prejudice, the people you support face barriers to receiving the life-saving vaccine. The same people are at high-risk of contracting the virus because of their living situations.
Without your support, people with leprosy, lymphatic filariasis and related disabilities will be at the back of the line – living in fear of this deadly virus.
You can save lives! Provide the COVID-19 vaccine for a person with leprosy or lymphatic filariasis. Through a partnership with Lepra UK and Lepra India, we will provide 2 doses of the vaccine and safe transportation to and from the vaccination site for those affected by leprosy and related disabilities.
