What is happening in India?

India has set a record of new coronavirus infections, according to the Associated Press (AP) “The virus is swallowing our city’s people like a monster,” an official at Bhopal’s Bhadbhada Vishram Ghat crematorium told AP. “It is as if we are in the middle of a war.” 

Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) India  has restarted an emergency response due to the situation in Mumbai. “This is the largest upsurge since the pandemic started,” they said in a statement. “MSF stands ready to further pace up its services in support of the health facilities that are currently completely overwhelmed.”

Top tips for emergency fundraising

If you want to take action to help the situation in India, we recommend fundraising for charities such as Médecins Sans Frontières or the International Committee of the Red Cross. 

Many will already be working on the ground to help the situation and can direct your money into existing projects. With all emergency fundraising, be clear as to why the situation is so important and why the money is needed so urgently. Imagine your readers are not following the news. 

If you would rather start a crowdfunders be clear about what the funds are for. Make sure to mention in your description:

  • How you will distribute the funds
  • How you will withdraw
  • What organisations you will support 

We also recommend setting up withdrawals straight away to ensure the money can get where it needs to go in record time. Our team of customer service agents are on hand 24/7 if you have any questions. And remember, if supporters are unable to make a donation, remind them that one of the best things they can do is share your fundraiser to raise awareness for your cause.
