Appeal Launched to Support COVID-19 Response in India

Ottawa | April 27, 2021

The Canadian Red Cross has launched the India COVID-19 Response Appeal to help provide much needed support to people and communities affected by the rapidly escalating pandemic in that country.
 
Red Cross and Red Crescent societies around the world have been actively responding to COVID-19. The Canadian Red Cross is offering support to the Indian Red Cross to deliver assistance and support to communities affected or at risk of being affected by COVID-19. Interventions include risk communication and community engagement, service provision, and National Society preparedness.
 
Money raised will enable the Red Cross to support COVID-19 preparedness, response, and recovery activities in India, and may include resiliency activities for future pandemic and/or emergency events. These activities and designated communities will evolve based on emerging needs.
 
Canadians wishing to make a donation to the India COVID-19 Response Appeal can do so online at www.redcross.ca or by calling 1-800-418-1111.
