Goal

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.

Mr Benjamin William, Secretary General / CEO, Singapore Red Cross, said, “This second wave of infections is deeply concerning. The rapidly growing number of cases has stretched to the limit, and even overwhelmed, most of the hospitals and other healthcare institutions. Containing the pandemic requires a concerted effort at the national level with global support. 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."
SRC is working in close collaboration with partners including the Indian Red Cross, the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement and other ground partners who have been actively responding to the crisis.

Note: Donations to overseas efforts are not tax-deductible.
In the event that donations exceed the expenses incurred by Singapore Red Cross in this specific disaster response, any surplus or unspent money, after 3 years from the date of inception of the fund, can be used to prepare for and serve communities affected by other disasters or may be used to complement or to sustain projects undertaken by SRC in helping the vulnerable in areas affected by disasters.
