What is the Role of NGO in Combating COVID-19 Pandemic?

We just can’t deny the role of NGO in combating COVID-19 pandemic. The calamitous impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has increased the suffering of underprivileged people living in India and worldwide. Loss of human lives at an alarming speed and economic activities has come to a near-standstill due to the outbreak of COVID-19.

In order to restrict the increasing COVID cases and prevent the fatalities from taking place amid the deadly second wave, all the states in India have imposed lockdown, and the result is that many people have become unemployed, migrant workers and labourers have returned to their home town, many less privileged kids have lost their breadwinner, and there are poor street vendors, hawkers, labours, and others from backward communities who are not capable enough to pay their medical bills and manage medicines and medical kit for COVID-19 survival.

The second wave concerning the Covid-19 pandemic is responsible for claiming the lives of millions of loved ones in India, putting uncontrollable pressure on healthcare professionals as well as infrastructure in the Nation. Even though the government, as well as healthcare authorities, are trying their best to bring the situation under control, some individuals, as well as organizations, are moving mountains to help by reducing the struggle that the general public is facing, pulling up resources as well, as ensuring they are delivered to those folks who are in need of them the most.

At Hindrise Foundation, we are extending on-ground support to sufferers of COVID-19 and their families who failed to manage the basic requisites for fighting against COVID-19.

We are arranging all the requisites such as medicines, oximeter, thermometer, hand gloves, sanitizers, face masks, ration kits, PPE Kits, and oxygen cylinder for the less privileged ones.
