The COVID-19 fund will be used to support individuals and families in the United States. Sewa International has been running COVID-19 (coronavirus) helplines in the United States since late February. Supported by a large group of committed volunteers, Sewa has risen to the occasion rapidly, assembling more than 3,000 volunteers in 43 chapters within a month and helping close the gap on many critical needs such as the crippling shortage of masks, personal protective equipment (PPE), sanitisers as well as providing meals and groceries to the needy. Local businesses and medical professionals are offering their services to the community through Sewa International. Sewa International has distributed more than 625,000 masks, 63,000 hot meals and food kits, donated more than $100,000 to food pantries, and engaged and coordinated the work of more than 200 professionals including doctors, attorneys, financial and employment specialists to offer more than 90 webinars to provide expert guidance. Nearly 1,000 Sewa volunteers are engaged in making homemade masks. Sewa International is also running 10 helplines in different metropolitan areas to provide non-medical advice and assistance. Sewa has also helped hundreds of stranded international students and travelers so far, coordinating the work with foreign consulates.
Sewa International has experience responding to more than 30 major disasters over the past 15 years but the coronavirus crisis is a unique challenge. Help us deal with this crisis and be a strong pillar of support to the community.
We need your generous donations and support in running these essential services. Let's all work together to keep our communities safe.
