In India, COVID-19 numbers are beyond comprehension – reaching almost 18 million cases total earlier this week. There are more than 320,000 new cases every day.
The healthcare system is collapsing under the strain. Hospitals are running out of oxygen. Remains of those who’ve passed away are lining up in the streets.
But our partners in India are bravely responding. They’re providing life-saving relief to the poorest and most vulnerable people, including widows, orphans, those who've lost jobs in lockdown, and the elderly.
It is crucial that we continue to help those most affected by the pandemic as they wait for a vaccine. Millions in India have been pushed further into poverty due to the economic impact of lockdowns, and they remain at critical risk from the virus. Please give today.
$40 could train two church leaders to share accurate information about Covid-19 vaccines in their communities.

$150 could create steady employment for those who’ve lost work opportunities during the pandemic, empowering them to feed their families.
