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.

Indeed, we can all save the day in the simplest of ways. We hope to rally the nation's grateful hearts, and to instill in everyone a mindset that every effort counts.
Our work at Singapore Red Cross is vast, we render assistance to a varied group of beneficiaries - the disabled, the poor and destitute, disadvantaged families and isolated elderly who live among us.
The ongoing COVID-19 situation will have serious and far-fetching consequences on the vulnerable communities we serve. The scope of our social services will continue to increase both in reach and depth, as we work hard to support as many communities through these challenging times.
We seek your every support as we navigate these challenging times.
