The Prem Rawat Foundation (TPRF) is providing $100,000 for COVID-19 relief in India and Brazil. The grants will fund medical care and supplies to help disadvantaged people grapple with the intense outbreaks of the disease that are now occurring in both countries.
TPRF is providing a $75,000 grant to Americares India for prevention supplies and essential medical equipment across 10 states, including ventilators, oxygen tanks, concentrators and pulse oximeters. The grant will also help support mobile clinics that provide primary care for approximately 600,000 people in impoverished Mumbai communities.
In Brazil, TPRF is providing a $25,000 grant to Doctors Without Borders / Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) to support infection prevention measures at high-risk facilities such as retirement homes and homeless shelters in Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Boa Vista, and several remote areas. The grant will also support MSF’s efforts to provide ICU-level care at facilities that lack it.
These new grants follow numerous initiatives that TPRF has taken since early 2020 to help people cope with the pandemic. TPRF will continue to monitor the situation, and with your support, will be able to continue to find ways to make a difference.
