India is currently in the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. The State Government is allocating $2 million in relief funding to support those directly impacted by the COVID-19 crisis in India. The fund complements initiatives already being delivered by Western Australian Indian organisations including the provision and installation of oxygen concentrates in hospitals, the sourcing and provision of ventilators, and grants to those vulnerable and disadvantaged members of the Indian community.
Western Australians can also make donations to Sewa International Australia, a registered not-for-profit organisation that has a presence in India, which is also raising funds for the COVID-19 plight in India.
