Every dollar makes a difference. India doesn't have the resources to support the scale. Your help would save lives.

The Singapore Red Cross is fundraising to deliver assistance and support communities in India, affected or at risk of being affected by the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak.
India, with a population of 1.3 billion, has recorded a total of 17.31 million infections and 195,123 deaths to date. There are now over 300,000 new infections a day, making India the country with the world's highest rate of daily COVID-19 cases.
Medical equipment and supplies, such as ventilators, oxygen cylinders and oxygen concentrators, are urgently needed. In the first instance, we have purchased and will deliver five ventilators to community hospitals in New Delhi through the Indian Red Cross Society. As we raise more funds, we can provide more lifesaving medical resources.
'The needs are immense, and we look forward to working with more organisations to support the relief efforts in India. Our response plan will be adjusted based on ongoing developments, evolving needs and regular assessment of the situation,' said Mr Benjamin William.
