A second wave of COVID-19 has devastated India. More than 200,000 people have died since the beginning of the year, and there are hundreds of thousands of new cases daily.
The Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) is working on the ground to:
💚 Establish an on-site oxygen generator to provide COVID-19 patients with a secure and constant source of oxygen
💚 Deliver PPE to frontline healthcare workers
💚 Set up COVID-19 vaccine camps
💚 Team up with mental health facilities to offer psycho-social support through counselling and community awareness.
And while the eyes of the world are on India right now, our neighbours in Papua New Guinea are also struggling to cope with the influx of COVID-19 cases.
Our team in PNG needs your help to ramp up their response to COVID-19. Your support can:
💚 Provide hand washing facilities for eight health facilities
💚 Procure critical PPE including N95 face masks
💚 Train clinical staff in COVID-19 safe practices and promotion of vaccines
💚 Provide basic medicines where gaps exist
We ask you to pray for the nations really struggling with the pandemic right now. Pray for those who are sick, those caring form them, and all the families affected. And if you can, please consider making a donating to support continued efforts on the ground. 🙏
