As you may be aware, COVID-19 has created a severe crisis throughout India. Canadian news has given extensive coverage of the tragic numbers of infections and deaths, along with the lack of availability and access to vaccines. And the news has correctly reported that India's medical system is right now on the verge of collapse. Calcutta Mercy Hospital, like others, is receiving calls 24 hours a day from those who are suffering and desperate for immediate help. Mercy Hospital has, for many years, provided free medical care for the poor, but now, the administration, doctors and staff are facing a catastrophe such as never before seen in their lifetimes. The greatest immediate need is for the funds to purchase oxygen, medication and supplies to provide critical care to patients. Your full donation will be directed immediately to Mercy Hospital in Calcutta.
