INDIA – For over a year, COVID-19 has ravaged not only our country, but our entire world. While most of us are familiar with the death tolls, the number of cases, and the vaccination process in the U.S., we might not be aware of the situation in other struggling nations, like India.
Update May 24, 2021
News coming out of India has continued to become more tragic. Those on the ground have reported the Ganges river being filled with bodies and the smell of death. They largely attribute this to COVID, which is causing approximately 4000 fatalities per day. Operation Blessing is currently in the process of expanding our COVID-19 humanitarian efforts in India to help these suffering people.
With your support, our goal is to provide medical oxygen supplies to various mission hospitals in the Indian states of Haryana, Uttarakhand, and Andhra Pradesh. We hope that together with friends like you, we can save thousands of lives per month.
In recent weeks, COVID-19 infections and deaths have skyrocketed in India. COVID cases in India have surpassed 20 million since the beginning of the pandemic, and the death toll is increasing by as many as 120 every hour. In the face of these grim numbers, YOU are helping to bring relief.
Oxygen, one of the key resources for helping seriously ill COVID patients recover, is in short supply in India. Some hospitals are having to turn the sick away because of lack of oxygen. Thanks to your support, Operation Blessing is helping provide oxygen for the Philadelphia Hospital in Ambala, India. The goal is to provide oxygen for 60 COVID patients per day for the next two weeks.
