Uniformity in vaccination delivery is crucial: Dr. Prannoy Roy


There is a desperate need to increase the number of people being vaccinated everyday. There is a stark difference between how some states are vaccinating well and others are slow. Slow vaccination rate means 1.3 billion people will be vulnerable. Uniformity and efficient delivery are crucial. Both quantity and quality are important in preventing third wave and protecting children.

About The Campaign

A catastrophic second wave of COVID -19 infections has brought India together, united in grief and pain, but with an overwhelming desire to help each other through the toughest of times.

 

As India braces for a possible third wave, the time for us to stand together once again, is now.

 

With compassion and empathy for one another, we can all play a role in strengthening India & protecting each other from another onslaught of the infection.

 

India’s Helping Hands is raising funds for resources that will be critically required should a third wave hit. The funds will also be used to protect the people of rural India from the severity of the third wave. In the long term, the funds will help skill people and make them self-sufficient once more.

 

Your support will help set-up child-friendly COVID centres and run vaccination drives in vulnerable districts of rural India.
