India is in the grip of a second deadly coronavirus wave. People desperate for medical care are struggling to pay for oxygen and medication.
As a community Athlone has benefited from the large Indian community in our region and we want to support their families who may be caught up in this devastating wave. We have created a GoFundMe page for local businesses and individuals to come together for India to get urgent medical supplies to critically ill people.
We will be supporting The Hope Foundation which is on the ground in Kolkata offering real support to people.
We are urging businesses to get involved in this fundraiser and we would like to suggest that businesses match fund donations given by their employees. So if you are an employee of a match funding business make sure to reference the company so we can track donations for match funding. Athlone based company Sidero will match funds donated by their employees and we urge all businesses to get on board the match funding proposal if possible.
Please show your support and donate whatever you can to help the most vulnerable people in our society. Link to donate below:
