You can help us SAVE LIVES!
We seek your attention to the grim situation that the Covid-19 Pandemic second wave has gripped the whole world and India in particular, and thrown a challenge to the Healthcare Providers in containing and managing the critically ill patients striving to survive.
A year ago, when the world was grappling with the beginnings of an unprecedented global pandemic, the Grace Cancer Foundation (GCF) quickly pivoted to address the critical situation in India. GCF leveraged its programs' infrastructure on health, education, and Rehabilitation via its wide network to address the needs of the nation with ventilators, PPE, and other interventions in order to save the lives of vulnerable Indians from COVID-19. Yet here we are, 12 months later, seeing an even more deadly resurgence of the virus in India.
GCF has jumped into action by quickly setting up a 50 bed COVID facility and a 10 bed COVID ICU facility in Nizamabad (a Tier 2 city in Telangana, India) and is ready to launch more such facilities in this Phase 2 of our COVID-19 Relief response and we need your support in executing them swiftly.
This brief report summarizes Phase 2 strategy to deal with the situation and how Grace can provide hands on support with its infrastructure and resources.
India recorded the world’s highest daily tally of 349,691 COVID-19 infections on April 25th, as this second wave sent many more into a fragile health care system, critically short of hospital beds and oxygen. The images from India are difficult to witness, such as those of Indians with empty oxygen cylinders crowding refilling facilities, hoping to save loved ones in the hospital.
Working with our partners, hospitals, and governments, GCF has launched a three-pronged Phase 2 Emergency Response Strategy to address this crisis.
