The organization's COVID Relief Fund will provide medical services and food to families in need, daily health checks, home education for children, access to vaccinations and much more.
"India is facing a devastating second wave of COVID-19 and their healthcare system doesn't have enough resources to care for everyone", Lily Collins said, urging supporters to donate. "They are in dire need of protective equipment, oxygen, medicine and food to save lives. I have such beautiful memories of the time I spent in India and the country will always have such a special place in my heart".
Friday, India reported the largest daily spike in new COVID-19 cases, bringing the total of new cases for the week to 1.57 million, with more than 21 million total coronavirus infections. Reports indicate that of these only 3.5 million people are actively being treated for COVID-19, as the growing number of cases is engulfing the country's health system and devastating the population. "As COVID rages in India, GoCampaign needs your help to provide food, medicine and resuscitators to those who need them"Star Wars fan favorite Ewan McGregor said."Any amount can make a difference and can help save lives".
Finally Robert Pattinson, new interpreter of the superhero Batman, said: "Think of GoCampaign as a truly significant investment fund. Your money will be invested in children, in a diversified portfolio designed to achieve maximum results. And the common thread is the real heroes, their proven track record, their commitment to serving children".
For the past eight years, GoCampaign has partnered with grassroots organizations including Dharavi Diary, Red Brigade and Bal Ashram Trust to provide support to India. The organization has set itself the goal of raising $ 250,000 from individual donors within the next two weeks.
