Council Members Respond with over $30 million for India’s COVID-19 Relief
For Immediate Release
The Canada-India Business Council stands with the people of India in helping fight their second wave of COVID-19. Our members have supported the Indian Red Cross and CARE India through their Canadian counterparts amongst other charities to provide local, on-the-ground assistance in cities across India. The financial donations by our members have helped set up temporary COVID-19 hospitals, supply hospital beds, medical oxygen, lifesaving medicine, provide personal protective equipment (PPE), emergency care for migrants, and implement infection control activities in communities across India.
Victor Thomas, President and CEO says, "The support by our members for emergency relief efforts in India the past 15 days has been overwhelmingly responsive and generous. We are dedicated and committed to the bi-national economic corridor and will support India in their time of need."
Our member companies and member provinces have made generous financial contributions and provided supplies in excess of $34,050,000. We will continue to work with the Government of Canada and Indian High Commission to explore every avenue to help the people of India during this crisis.
