COVID-19: helping vulnerable people in India
July 12, 2021
950 million people are eligible to get vaccinated in India, but just over 5% of the population is fully vaccinated. The country reported more than 37,000 new cases in the last 24 hours (while in Canada there have been 309 new cases).
Also, the new coronavirus variant, Delta plus, has been detected in three states in India.
Good Neighbors has been mobilizing the community in India for vaccination drives while distributing groceries, and PPE kits with masks, hand sanitizers, and gloves.
Screening camps have also been organized to teach people about hygiene and prevention. Children get special attention, learning about why they should wear masks and getting help with their masks' fit.
We are accepting donations for food hampers and PPE kits. If you can help with any amount, please visit our Health page.
