SABAW united with our national organization SABA North America, SABA Foundation, and 26 other SABA chapters in the US and Canada to launch a Coordinated Campaign Supporting COVID Relief in India: https://www.sabalegalfdn.org/indian-covid-relief.
All individual donations that we receive at the link between May 10 and May 31, 2021 will be used to support reputable charitable organizations fighting COVID in India, of which UNICEF will be the first one. All donations should go to the SABA Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, and will be tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. We are still in the process of vetting non-sectarian organizations and any additions to the charity slate will be announced publicly.
The current surge is overwhelming Indian health care infrastructure: patients are not able to access hospital beds and oxygen is in short supply. We named UNICEF and its Indian Humanitarian Rush Aid relief efforts as the first charity in our fundraising efforts because it is on the ground, working with partners to deliver urgently needed medical equipment, PPE, hygiene supplies and critical care to those in need. UNICEF’s Office of Innovation has been focused on Oxygen Therapy as a key component of its effort to save lives of children. As a result, UNICEF has been able to procure 15,000 oxygen concentrators as part of its COVID-19 response, helping more than 90 countries across the world. UNICEF (USA) has already shipped 3,000 oxygen concentrators to India last week.
The ongoing crisis in India requires an all-hands-on-deck approach. As South Asian American attorneys across the U.S. and Canada, the members and supporters of SABA Foundation, SABA North America, and local SABA chapters feel a special obligation to help in any way we can. Please share this information with your friends and community (social media links below). Together, we can make a difference.
