The second wave of COVID-19 has engulfed India completely. India being a very populous country, the healthcare system is struggling to keep up as the number of cases exponentially rise every day. With more than 2,200 deaths everyday, and more than 2 Million active cases, this second wave requires an immediate response.
As this gruesome disease is spreading and leaving no household untouched, the one thought that comes to each of us is how can we help from so far away?
This is a collective fight for everyone. Sewa's volunteers and team (500+, and growing) in Bharat are actively serving in various forms. From building a digital helpdesk for verified information to running information campaigns around Plasma donation, to distributing essentials and supporting old-age homes and orphanages in these tough times.
Sewa is planning to distribute 10,000 units of essentials' kit across the nation, with a network of organizations, and serve 1,000 orphanages and old-age homes across major cities.
- $21 for each family essentials' kit (Ration, Basic Medicines, Masks, Sanitizers etc)
- $201 for community homes with 20-30 people, such as orphanages and old-age homes (Ration, Basic Medicines, Oximeter, Masks, Sanitizers etc.)
-$501 for oxygen concentrator. We are about to ship 200 oxygen concentrators to India.

There are 800 staff members and around 1200 inmates in Cobb county Jail.
Inspired by Sewa International 100+ people are stitching DIY masks in Atlanta to cater the local need. Today, we distributed 350+ masks to Cobb County Sheriff Neil Warren. Masks will be distributed to staff and inmates.
He has all praise for our volunteers. Couple of weeks back, we had distributed 3 ply masks to Forsyth County Sheriff and Fire department office.
Description: The coronavirus is causing financial difficulties for businesses across the U.S. Many small business owners are unsure of what steps to take to mitigate risk, protect employees and support customers. The social distancing has forced businesses to collaborate virtually. Many small businesses may not be prepared. Some organizations may adopt remote work policies, whilst others may not be able to do so. Some businesses are finding innovative ways to reduce risk for their customers and also their employees. Prof. Sheth will share some of his perspectives on how the small businesses could manage the impact they are seeing from this pandemic and what strategies they can use in the short and long run.
