Emergency: COVID-19 Overwhelms India
India is in crisis. The country is battling a growing humanitarian disaster, as the coronavirus pandemic spreads and claims more lives every day.
The need is urgent. With your help, CNEWA will rush aid to our partners on the ground to help distribute personal protective equipment (PPE), hygiene kits, and provide essential food and health care. Will you please give whatever you can to help our brothers and sisters in India?
Pope Francis recently expressed his solidarity and closeness to the people of India. More than 245,000 people have died from COVID-19 in India, and the numbers grow by the hour.
Please keep India in your prayers. During the month of May, the Holy Father has called on Catholics around the world to join in praying the rosary, asking Our Lady to intercede to bring an end to the pandemic. And we ask you to please include in your intentions Bishop Jacob Mar Barnabas Aerath, who has personally overseen many pandemic relief efforts throughout northern India, and is currently in critical condition due to COVID-19. Our Lady of Good Health, pray for us!
Thank you for your support and prayers during this desperate time.
