The fundraising platform stated, “At the onset of the pandemic last year, when hospitals were facing a dire need for protective gear and equipment, we at GiveIndia had responded in record time to stand strong beside our saviours, our healthcare heroes. And we were able to fill the gap by raising ₹28+ lakhs through this mission and helped those who were risking their lives to save ours.”

With the increasing burden of COVID positive patients, this year, Give India has set a goal of ₹20 Crore funding and till now the platform has collected ₹8 crores.
