HELP INDIA CONQUER THE SECOND WAVE OF COVID-19
IIT Alumni Canada is collaborating with SEWA Canada International, Vraj Community Services, Canadian Red Cross and Rotary International to raise funds to fight the resurgence of Covid-19 that is ravaging India.
As alumni of IITs all of us are aware that we received an excellent education there which is recognized all over the world. We received it at a small fraction of the real cost to educate us. The rest of the cost was carried by the people of India. For that we will forever be indebted to the people of India. This is the time we must rise to the occasion and come to the help of our mother country. We request you to contribute as much as possible to bring relief to those suffering from the ravages of COVID-19 in India and to help them overcome this latest scourge.
In addition we urge you to write to your local Member of Parliament requesting support for the Canadian Government to match contributions to the various COVID efforts in India.
A number of charitable organizations have risen to the occasion and IITAC is collaborating with those given above. A number of other organizations have approached us and for brevity we have not given their entire write-ups. We have provided their names, websites, phone numbers and emails as an attachment. Every organization has its own specialties, activities, viewpoints, modus operandi et cetera. The ratio of the donation received by the user to the amount contributed can vary substantially from organization to organization. The use to which the part of the contribution not received by the end user can also vary substantially. All Alumni are responsible for reviewing the information about the organization to which they intend to send their donations and satisfying themselves before making the contribution. IITAC assumes no liabilities or responsibility for the choice of organization made by the Contributor.

CANADIAN RED CROSS COVID 19 RESPONSE IN INDIA

Health workers and ambulances services are limited. India is currently facing a massive surge in cases of COVID-19. The situation is critical. The sharp increase in cases is putting immense pressure on India’s healthcare system and the Indian Red Cross Society is working hard to help alleviate the burden.
