India COVID-19 Crisis: Help Save Lives
Your donation will help UNICEF supply life-saving medical oxygen and testing machines in the most affected districts in India.
A second wave of COVID-19 is wreaking havoc throughout India. The loss of life is tragic and catastrophic — with nearly two deaths every minute.
Growing exponentially every day, this recent COVID-19 outbreak is recording the highest count of new cases, more than any other country throughout the entire pandemic. The new surge in COVID-19 cases is also seeing more young people including children fall ill.
Hospitals and health centres across the country are overwhelmed with hospital beds, essential drugs and oxygen running out. People are desperate for urgent care.
We’re in a race against time to:
- Increase access to life-saving medical oxygen in India to treat severe and critical COVID-19 cases
- Provide rapid and accurate testing machines in some of the most affected districts
- Support communities and essential workers to maintain our critical programs for children
- Continue our monumental efforts of distributing the COVID-19 vaccines
