Recently COVID-19 cases have reached record-breaking levels in India and other areas of South Asia, resulting in widespread lockdowns to slow the spread of the virus. For people already struggling because of hunger and poverty, the mandate to stay home prevents them from working to provide for the basic needs of their families.
In addition, the pandemic is causing hospitals and clinics to quickly deplete the supplies required to care for sick patients.
As Unto® works with two nation-wide hospital networks, local teams have been invited by the government there to establish an 80-bed satellite COVID patient hospital. In addition supplies will be provided to best serve people affected by the pandemic and fulfill the needs of healthcare facilities.
We invite you to partner with us to provide critical aid to people who are unable to move about and obtain food or hygiene supplies and to supply hospital and clinic workers with essential healthcare items.
Your gift now will provide critical aid to people in India and other areas affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
In addition to the satellite hospital, critical supplies provided will be tailored to the specific needs of a community or medical facility and include humanitarian aid like:
Despite travel bans Unto is already positioned to equip in-country teams with resources. That is because we provide critical aid and coaching to local partners who live and serve in the affected region. Their long-term relationships with local leaders, churches, and individuals allow them to mobilize quickly to help in times like these.
Critical aid will be personally delivered by in-country staff members and put into the hands of hungry or struggling families and distributed to healthcare facilities, providing lifesaving assistance and creating opportunities for hope to be shared.
