Highlights Of #CaringForIndia Telethon: An Initiative To Assist Healthcare Workers In Their Fight Against Coronavirus

New Delhi Television Limited (NDTV), in collaboration with the GiveIndia, a non-profit organisation, has initiated a drive to help protect our medical caregivers in the fight against coronavirus outbreak in the country. To support our healthcare workers and protect them from falling ill themselves in the line of duty. 

Here are the Highlights of the #CaringForIndia Telethon:

Aug 15, 2020
19:44 (IST)
In the time of a crisis like this pandemic, both the demand from donors surge - I mean 3.5 lakh donors have donated to the fund, as well as the number of NGOs doing work on this issue has skyrocketed. So literally 70-80% of all NGOs across India say that they are doing some work related to COVID relief: Ingrid Srinath, Director, Centre for Social Impact and Philanthropy, Ashoka University

GiveIndia to cope with this surge with both supply and demand, was to create a 20 person advisory board comprising of really emminent people across business, philanthropy and civil society to oversee the whole process, define the mandate for the fund, define the fund's priorities and then continue to monitor the fund. 

Within that advisory board there is a 3 person steering committee of which I am part, which meets weekly. And what we do is review proposals that have already been vetted by the GiveIndia staff to meet their criteria and then we examine them for their fit with what the funds purposes are. And then we report back to the board on this, so in a sense there is a three step vetting of every programme that receives money from the funds.

So, all disbursals are reported weekly on the ICRF website and through social media accounts of ICRF. We review it as a committee weekly and the advisory board reviews it fortnightly.

About The Campaign

About The Campaign

Our doctors, nurses and other hospital staff have been carrying the heavy burden of the pandemic while working within the limitations of an inadequate public healthcare system.

With 0.55 hospital beds per thousand population, and under 15% of ICUs across the country have dedicated critical care doctors, this campaign is to help bridge some of these gaps for better patient outcomes and to make sure our healthcare workers are safe themselves.

To support our healthcare workers and protect them from falling ill themselves in the line of duty, we have identified three areas of intervention in India’s battle against coronavirus:

  1. Door-to-door community screening in hotspots 
  2. Provide certified PPE kits and masks to save our saviours from the virus
  3. Scale plasma donation and facilitate safe home quarantine solutions
