Our response to COVID-19 in India
A deadly surge in COVID-19 infections is causing devastation across India, with millions of newly reported infections and a death toll that has rapidly surpassed 200,000 people. The country’s healthcare system is already overwhelmed and the crisis is only getting worse.
ADRA is escalating its COVID-19 response within India to help support hospitals and healthcare workers to save lives by providing critical oxygen resources to hospitals, supporting local clinic staff, promoting preventive measures, and providing vital personal protective equipment to frontline medical staff. An Oxygen Generation Plant (OGP) is being established by ADRA to help affected patients. You can read more about ADRA’s response in India here.
