Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), in collaboration with New Delhi Television Limited (NDTV), has initiated a drive to fight against coronavirus outbreak in the country. Join the campaign and help us reach out to the poor and vulnerable who need the urgent support.
COVID-19 remains a health emergency and a deadly threat, especially to the most vulnerable. Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) has been responding to the global pandemic since it began. MSF doctors and nurses are treating patients and supporting communities across Europe, Africa, the Americas and Asia.
Now the independent medical organisation is starting operations to combat COVID-19 in India. By setting up dedicated medical facilities to treat COVID-19 patients in Govandi, Mumbai and Patna in Bihar – where needs are huge and growing – and improving hygiene and sanitation among at-risk communities, MSF is working hard to save lives and contribute to the fight against COVID-19.
We need your help to deliver this urgently needed care. Your money will go to support MSF’s frontline medical staff and healthcare workers, supplying them with essential technical equipment and personal protective equipment (PPE), plus mental-health support for medical staff working during this stressful time. Your contributions will also go towards containing the outbreak by providing masks and hygiene kits to keep thousands of the most vulnerable people protected.
Money raised will be used for
The purchase and supply of essential technical medical equipment, such as oxygen concentrators
Personal Protective Equipment
Acquiring effective personal protective equipment (PPE) sets for MSF medics and staff
Improving toilets and other sanitation facilities shared among communities most affected by COVID-19
Distributing hygiene kits of reusable face masks and soaps to vulnerable groups
Prevent the spread of COVID-19 among vulnerable communities through health education
