The past few weeks have been a wrecking ball for our country. The news of death and despair, the lack of oxygen, hospital beds is all overwhelming for every Indian out there. But we want you to pause for a moment and take a deep breath.
India is a strong country. As the bad news keeps pouring in on the news channels each day, we could not help but notice how strong we are as a country. We respect all the frontline workers and volunteers who put their lives on the line and work relentlessly to save the nation from this deadly virus.
While we appreciate such brave humans, we also want to take a moment to think of those stuck at home feeling like we cannot help the nation at this wretched hour. The truth is each of us who are wearing masks, maintaining social distancing, staying at home, and following the given COVID-19 protocols are corona warriors.
As each of you is doing your part to fight the pandemic, we at CoinSwitch Kuber are doing our bit in giving back to the society that put us where we are today.
CoinSwitch is pledging $1 Million to the ACT grants as a small contribution to India’s war against Covid-19. We have also compiled a list of resources that could help you or anyone you know at some point.
Here’s a list of resources that could provide leads on hospital beds, ICU, plasma donors, Oxygen tanks, medication, mental health support and standard COVID guidelines to help fight the virus.
India Covid Resources: A platform that provides resource leads for emergency needs pan India.
Suppose you or your social circle have tested positive for COVID and are quarantining themselves from home. In that case, you can order home-cooked meals for them on Covidmealsforindia.com or Wholistic Services page. Just search for your locality, find a food supplier and place your order on WhatsApp.
Suppose you are alone, experiencing anxiety or suffering from any mental health issues. In that case, you may contact the NIMHANS – Psychosocial support and mental health services during disasters.
Vaccination is the only tool we have in our current situation to fight COVID-19. The government has declared the ‘Vaccine for all’ programme, allowing people of 18 to get themselves vaccinated. For more information, visit https://www.cowin.gov.in/home.
These are testing times, and we believe that together we can overcome the pandemic. Please take precautionary measures to keep yourself and your family safe. The well-being of the country lies in the hands of every one of us.
