GiveIndia and Oyo Care have launched a fundraising campaign #ShelterForAll with an aim to raise ₹10 crore to offer rooms as isolation and quarantine shelters for Covid-19 positive patients in need.
Through this initiative, GiveIndia will begin with opening doors to three dedicated Oyo Care properties as quarantine centres with meals in Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Gurgaon/Delhi NCR for symptomatic as well as asymptomatic Covid-19 patients during their recovery.
As the campaign progresses towards its goal, more and more hotel partners will be equipped to turn their properties into quarantine facilities across cities.
“While patients who need critical care are running out of beds and oxygen, those who are positive and mildly symptomatic are also in grave need for spaces to recover. A huge chunk of the population in our country doesn’t have the means to find a shelter when recovering or isolating themselves at home or can’t afford facilities available outside their homes. We hope this campaign will raise awareness of underprivileged Covid-19 patients, their basic right to shelter for isolation and a chance to recover,” says Atul Satija, CEO, GiveIndia said.
