Fight Against COVID-19

In March 2020, when the first lockdown was announced in India, in a bid to control COVID-19, the count was still in hundreds. But, everyone knew that it will increase rapidly. By May 19, 2020, more than one lakh Indians had contacted the disease.

In March itself, we had anticipated that the frontline health workers – doctors, nurses, medical practitioners and even police and sanitation workers – urgently need to be equipped with protective equipment like masks, gowns, sanitizers, etc. to prevent them getting exposed to this highly infectious and communicable virus.

Keeping this in mind, we started a fundraiser with an initial target of ₹50 lakh. Within a short span of time, generous donors from all walks of life contributed more than the initial target and we managed to collect more than ₹65 lakh.

A BIG THANK YOU to all the donors for joining us in the cause.

Total spend on our Covid-19 project has been more than ₹67 lakh.

It was a humbling and moving experience for most of the audience. These children some of those who were deprived of an important faculty taught us to remain strong and face the challenge in the most adverse circumstances with a smile on the face.
