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:

Delhi has been an amazing example, the government has really gone out of the way to help us in any way we wanted: Dr. Shuchin Bajaj: Founder Director, Ujala Cygnus Hospital

The impact I think has been massive. Everybody is speaking about the Delhi model. We are just lucky and very proud and privileged to have been a small part of it. I think we connected to hundreds and thousands of patients. If you think that RNought is anywhere between 2-3, connecting to about 90,000 patients in Delhi, I think it's more than 100,000 now, if you see the RNought is 2.5, you prevented 2.5 lakh new infections because we made sure that these people either stayed at home or went to hospital. And did not keep roaming around, did not go out, did not become super spreaders.

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 

Money Raised Will Be Used For

  • Prevention

    Prevention

    Curb the spread of the virus by door-to-door screening at Covid hotspots, like urban slums. This will expedite the testing process for people showing symptoms

  • Treatment

    Treatment

    Provide solutions for efficient treatment and fill gaps in shortage of available intensivists. Scale plasma donations from recovered Covid patients, provide home care for mildly-ill patients and set up remote monitoring of ICUs with 24X7 doctors on call.

  • Protection

    Protection

    Save Covid Warriors from the risk of getting infected. Provide certified PPE kits and protective equipment to healthcare workers, ASHA and Anganwadi workers in rural areas.

GiveIndia exists to alleviate poverty by enabling the world to give. When founded in the year 2000, it was India’s first and only online donation platform set up to “professionalise giving”, providing donors with a pool of transparent, trusted NGOs towards whom they could confidently direct their compassion and contributions.

Having started with nine nonprofits, verified through a rigorous due diligence process, now there are 1,500 NGOs across GiveIndia’s subscription and crowdfunding platforms.

They serve almost all causes, from popular ones like education, health and children's welfare to others such as climate change, animal welfare, and LGBTQI rights.

Our suite of products and solutions enable all givers - individuals and organisations - to donate conveniently to any cause directly on our platform, at their workplace or through one of our partners.

Our community of 1.5M+ donors and 150+ partners have impacted 8M+ lives across India. As an immediate response to the COVID pandemic, GiveIndia set up India COVID Response Fund and has since raised ₹200+Cr supporting 40lakh+ individuals via the work of 200+ nonprofits across the country.
