Raising Fund to Help India Breathe Again

Please join Dr. Amit Vashist from Johnson City, Tennessee and his colleague Dr. Amit Kumar from Phoenix, Arizona in helping India and the global community!

A heart-wrenching tragedy is being played out in India, and the Indian health care system is in a full blown crisis and on the verge of a complete breakdown. Hundreds of thousands of new patients are being diagnosed with COVID-19 everyday, and several thousands are losing their lives to this disease every single day. While the US government has vouched to share vaccines with India, they will not arrive in India for some time. Almost all of us with loved ones in India have lost one or more members of our family and friends.

Dr. Vashist is raising money to benefit American India Foundation, and any donation will help make an impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me and more importantly to the millions of Indians who so desperately need every available help. The American Indian Foundation is a very well established organization engaging in a concerted relief effort, providing oxygen concentrators, ventilators, hospital beds, community screenings, PPE, and more. Supporting them will directly save lives. The need of the hour is funding, hospital beds, & oxygen, as many hospitals are left with <5hrs of supply for patients they can save otherwise.

More information about American India Foundation: The American India Foundation is committed to catalyzing social and economic change in India and building a lasting bridge between the United States and India through high-impact interventions in education, livelihoods, public health, and leadership development.

Please check out the dire projections from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington projecting that about a million or more Indians would die from COVID-19 by August, 2021.
