It is inconceivable that our world is currently facing a crisis of such a massive extent. COVID-19 has taken the lives of millions of innocent people and infiltrated almost every country. It has wreaked havoc amongst all populations, forcing people to isolate themselves for the past month to avoid contracting this airborne disease.
We have been given this time to make a difference and support those that are being affected by this illness the most. It is truly terrifying to hear about the conditions in hospitals as they are struggling to assist the thousands of new patients that are testing positive every single day. At some point, there were no more beds, ventilators, masks, or even available doctors. As a result, NRI Federation has made it a priority to voice our gratitude to all the doctors, caregivers, and healthcare professionals that are taking on a responsibility that they never signed up for by risking their lives with every patient they treat. They are the warriors, fighting against this virus for us.
The team at NRI Federation has been practicing social distancing and urges everyone to prioritize their health and focus on their hygiene. It is also vital that we keep our local businesses running in any way possible, whether that is ordering in dinner or picking up groceries.
NRI Federation has distributed masks and vitamin c juice packets to local hospitals due to the shortages they are facing and will continue to support all healthcare clinics.
We urge that you reach out to your relatives, whether they are in the United States, India, or anywhere else. Ensure that they have access to masks and hand sanitizer and are practicing social distancing. Make sure that your loved ones are remaining wary and remind them that even though we have been in quarantine for so long now, we cannot forget to keep our distance from others to keep our health intact now. Despite the recent protests for the Black Lives Matter Movement and opening of public areas and stores, we must not forget the very real pandemic that we have been facing and will continue to face in the months ahead.
Please feel free to contact us if you are in need or any assistance. We are more than happy to help.
