“Care with Prayer” is an initiative of IBC for mobilising sponsored aid by organizations and individuals to help people in need at this very difficult time of the second wave of Covid -19 which is more devastating and fatal than the first wave. The experts and WHO have already sounded warnings about the Third Wave.
The Government and local administration and bigger relief agencies are putting resources into rushing critical equipment, material, medicines into the health infrastructure and emergency Covid Care Centres. Various NGOs including faith-based organisations are doing remarkable service by setting up Oxygen banks, CCCs, providing hospitals with Oxygen concentrators, running free ambulance services and also providing care by way of food distribution to both patients, care givers and needy in lockdown.
The deadly surge in COVID-19 cases is placing an enormous strain on health and critical care facilities in India and Nepal. This second wave of the pandemic is larger and spreading more rapidly than the first, and is leaving a trail of despair.
The talk of looming third wave is even more worrisome and is also a reminder that the pandemic is far from over and will continue to challenge. We need to continue to work together and take life-saving preventive measures to contain it.
IBC is continuing to work with its national and international partners and hospitals toincrease access to life-saving oxygen by providing refillable Oxygen cylinders, Oxygen Concentrators and support communities and essential workers by distributing critical lifesaving materials including N 95 masks, PPE kits, gloves, Oxymeters, sanitizers to keep frontline workers including Police, para-medics, health and sanitation workers, ambulance operatorsand care giverssafe as they work around the clock.
IBC intends to serve as a "bridge of compassion" to enable sponsored Aid items received through our network and partner organizations to reach the needed recipients in the fastest time possible.
We are also making efforts to install oxygen generation plants in hospitals for uninterrupted supply of oxygen not only for COVID-19 cases but all critical treatment.
IBC with presence in 36 countries is registered under Societies Registration Act 1860 and has grantee status with the Ministry of Culture, Govt of India.
