    URGENT COVID Relief - $15k Matching

    Ekam USA is supporting the urgent needs for COVID relief and protection in India due to the unexpected and sudden second wave across the country. All age groups are being affected and due to several different mutated virus strains the severity of the disease is high. Combined with the lack of oxygen, hospital beds, loss of livelihood opportunities, it is hard on daily wage workers. In addition to limited health care resources and access, expecting mothers and those with newborn babies are also turning COVID positive. Without the proper resources, guidance, and education, they are unable to handle the crisis.
