Our Campaign Storyends 31 May 2021, 11:59 PM
The Covid-19 situation in India is sad and heartbreaking. Every day, the country is fighting against more than 300,000 new Covid-19 cases and over 4,000 deaths in India. Our heart goes out to all our friends and colleagues in India as we see a spike in Covid-19 cases.
We are committed to helping and supporting them. JEL is launching a fund-raising campaign to contribute and help the crisis in India. Funds raised will go to the 'India Health Relief Fund', set up by the Singapore Red Cross (SRC)
Now, we could do more and help. Please share this with your family and friends. Your help will help to SAVE more lives!!!
Thank you so much!

Updates as of 12 May 2021: Since the launch of its public appeal on 28 April, the Singapore Red Cross has received over S$3.2 million in donations.
The first tranche of aid, worth about SGD 3.6 million, includes medical equipment such as oxygen concentrators, oxygen cylinders, and ventilators to directly support patients and healthcare workers in hospitals.

SRC is fundraising to deliver assistance and support communities in India, affected or at risk of being affected by the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak.
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.
