As news media outlets report heart-wrenching stories about the exponential COVID infection and death rates in India, our hearts cry out.
We live in an interconnected world. None of us can be free of COVID-19 until all countries have overcome the pandemic. Just as the disease knows no borders, our care for each other doesn’t either.
Join our campaign: To India, With Love.
Together, our individual contributions can make a big impact.
We are focusing our efforts on the highest need items:
• Oxygen concentrators and ventilators
• New COVID care centers
• N95 masks and PPE for hospitals, medical centers, and residents
• Trauma relief and stress relief for affected families and medical professionals

Field reports from the ground
Timely access to medical care, oxygen supplies, beds and personal protective equipment (PPE) is imperative to minimizing the loss of life. As migrant workers and daily wage workers have lost their livelihood as a result of the pandemic, millions are struggling to keep their families fed.
IAHV, in partnership with Art of Living India, has mobilized a volunteer network of doctors, set up beds, and established supply chains where they can purchase and distribute critical equipment to hospitals across the country within 5 days.
In India, IAHV and Art of Living have deep networks built over decades within India, who are capable of distributing goods to hospitals and providing services in communities. Because our work is driven by volunteers who are committed to service, an incredibly high percentage of funds raised go directly to the projects. IAHV has helped transform over 30,000 villages in India, with thousands of volunteers education, tribal welfare, vocational training, microfinance, leadership training, and SME development – and our commitment to supporting the health and wellbeing of Indians exists before and beyond this crisis moment.
