A catastrophic second wave of COVID -19 pandemic has brought India together, united in grief and pain, but with an overwhelming desire to help each other through the toughest of times. As India prepares itself for a possible third wave of COVID-19, the time for us to stand together once again, is now. NDTV in partnership with ChildFund has initiated India’s Helping Hands, a campaign supported by WhatsApp. The campaign aims to raise funds for resources that will be critically required should a third wave hit. The funds will be used to build COVID centres for children, run vaccination drives in rural India and protect the people of rural India. In the long run, the funds will help skill people and make them self-sufficient once more. To contribute, click here.
