HARVEST, Ala. – While the pandemic is on its way to get under control here in the United States, it is still devastating populations elsewhere around the world.

Right now India is devastated and a harvest-based organization is doing its part here at home to help those thousands of miles away.

The Hindu Cultural Center in Northern Alabama is holding a fundraising campaign “Pray for India”.

The aim is to raise as much money as possible from community members to donate for the purchase of vaccines and oxygen for COVID-19 patients in India. They have raised $ 3,000 so far, but organizers said they are hoping for more.

“It’s been so bad in the last few weeks that people need a lot of help. In a country with so many people, it was difficult for the government and the communities and we thought we would do something and raise funds to help them, ”said Dr. Subir Paul.

Dr. Paul is a nephrologist who sits on the HCCNA Board of Trustees.

For members of the HCCNA community, the devastation is personal as many have family members or friends who are sick or have died from COVID-19 complications, including Dr. Paul.

The organizers have not set a deadline for the fundraiser but will continue to raise funds as long as there is an interest in helping.
