    Covid-19 has affected innumerable lives. And it has been the lowest income and marginalised sections of society that have been hit the hardest. If you've been looking for a way to make a difference, we've got you sorted.

    Here's a list of NGOs and organisations you can donate to and lend a helping hand.

    Hemkunt Foundation

    Hemkunt Foundation is a Non-Profit Organization based out of Delhi that has been doing a tremendous job at providing Covid-19 relief not just in Delhi but in other cities as well. They initially started out by distributing food during the first wave and quickly expanded their aid by procuring thousands of oxygen cylinders for those tragically hit by the second wave. Not just that, folks at Hemkunt are also distributing oxygen concentrators, masks, hand gloves, face shields and other must-haves. They're also providing a free ambulance service across Delhi NCR for those infected. 

    You can donate at Hemkunt here and fill out this Google form for volunteering with them. 

    Give India

    They are India’s most trusted donation platform and are collecting donations to provide meals and protection kits to daily wagers who have been rendered jobless due to the virus outbreak. Till date, they've got a whopping 6,46,622 helping hands supporting their cause (and it's only increasing). Just by donating a sum of INR 500 and upwards, you'd be sponsoring a protection kit for the needy. 

    They're currently running donation drives for an array of campaigns ranging from funding Covid hit families to oxygen supply. You can look at their campaigns here and send in your donations. 

    World For All

    Well, apart from us, it's the stray animals too who've been affected by the lockdown. While they were blessed with regular feeders and animal lovers across the city, the lockdown has left them uncertain and confused. World For All urges all the animal lovers out there to do their bit by helping the strays receive a wholesome meal. They are aiming to cook and feed 300+ strays in Mumbai and thus need your help to help them do it.

    You can donate online or by cheque too. You can send money across Paytm on 9820403978.

Along with a few other organizations, Mukti has taken up the initiativeto procure a large number of oxygen concentrators that can help patients with low levels of oxygen saturation to breathe easier. These concentrators will help extract oxygen from the air and supply directly 5/10 ltr per min. One oxygen concentrator can serve around 10 patients for over two months.
