India is in the throes of a grave crisis. Hospitals and healthcare workers are overwhelmed, patients are gasping for air, and funeral pyres have blackened our skies. Over a year since the pandemic first hit, an ongoing surge is devastating the lives and livelihoods of millions across the country.
Our spirit to overcome this challenge, nonetheless, stands strong.
We, as South Asian students in the United States, have come together in hopes of saving the lives of those battling Covid-19 and protecting the healthcare workers putting their own safety on the line. We may be far from home, but we are not powerless to help. We urge you to join us in our efforts to aid our community.
Our aim is to channel vital resources to the organizations working tirelessly towards this goal and serve as a united platform for pooling funds from across our university networks. Shortages in oxygen, protective equipment and other medical supplies continue to strain the healthcare system and distress the affected. Together, we can help lift the burden.
