12 Global Artists have come forward to donate their art and raise funds for patients affected by Covid-19 in the Rural India.
The Second Wave of Covid-19 has led India into a medical emergency with over 3,50,000 cases a day, casualties going uncounted and constituting 40% of the daily cases globally. Along with the severity of the disease, people are suffering from the lack of health infrastructure in the country.
Patients do not have access to Breathable Liquid Oxygen, enough Care Centres for Patients, Hospital Beds, Medicines, and ICUs.
There is an IMMEDIATE need for medical help, especially in the rural parts of the country with insufficient resources and infrastructure.
In response to this, we alongside 12 other global artists have come forward to raise funds that can support these affected people by collaborating with Swasth Alliance and ACT Grants.
Artists supporting us on this mission are Ana Sneeringer, Alicia Puig, Ekaterina Popova, Emily Mullet, Lily Keller, Mia Risberg, Mona Lerch, Nadine Montille, Shachi Kale, Valerie Auersperg, and Victoria Fry.
Where will your donation go?
100% of the proceeds will go in purchasing oxygen concentrators, oximeters and thermometers, support in training personnel in areas like triaging of patients, drafting and distributing awareness materials, and assisting in-home care using telemedicine support and critical care capacity building.
Donating to Swasth Foundation: Rural capacity strengthening and support
Over the last few weeks, as the Wave-2 continues to wreak havoc across India, a distressing picture of the situation in rural India is emerging – where available resources and infrastructure are acutely insufficient to meet the growing demand. Swasth Alliance is working with a variety of on-ground not-for-profit partners to understand the demand requirements and plan for essential capacity strengthening. Our plans include provision of physical devices like oxygen concentrators, oximeters and thermometers, support in training personnel in areas like triaging of patients, drafting and distributing awareness materials, and assisting in home care using tele-medicine support and critical care capacity building.

In memory of my mother
April 16th, 1968 – May 5th, 2021
“I lost my mother to this terrible disease. She fought hard with this virus 25 days.
But, her fight was over. We did everything we could to save her.
Left no stone unturned to give her a chance at her beautiful life.
Unfortunately, so many of Covid affected patients are not even getting a
fair chance at basic healthcare.
With this, fundraiser if we are able to help even 1 person struggling to fight this
virus. I would consider it a blessing.”
