2021 COVID HELP Appeal

Namaskar Mandali,

You would have seen the havoc caused by Covid-19 in India.  The news coverage is heart breaking.  I am sure all of us would want to help India at the time of this catastrophe in some shape or form.  At this time, all we can do from half the world away is to offer financial help to buy equipment such as oxygen cylinders, vaccines and other equipment.  You can send your donations to MSSO (Mararashtra Seva Samiti Organisation) which has been actively helping charitable activities in Maharashtra.  MSSO has ties with the following three hospitals:

  1. Hospital at Lok Briadari Prakalp, Hemalkasa (looked after by Dr. Prakash Amte)
  2. Vivekanand hospital at Latur (looked after by Dr. Ashok Kukade)
  3. Walawalkar hospital, Dervan, Konkan (looked after by Dr. Suvarna Patil)

All fund raised by this donation drive will be used for dealing with Covid-19 in India.

The MSSO donations can be sent either on line by credit card or by cheque.  It will be much faster to send donations on line.
