ARW’s Contribution to COVID-19 Relief in India

India’s COVID-19 cases are reaching new devastating heights everyday with over 3 million active cases. We are facing the largest humanitarian crisis we have seen in our lifetimes. As a global community, it’s time we join hands to contribute and stop this crisis.

 

ARW is participating in a volunteer effort power by Pathcheck Foundation – whose mission is devoted to containing COVID-19 and providing relief to India. A team of dedicated volunteers from all around the world are coming together to address poor resource allocation and gaps in data that can be fatal if neglected when fighting a pandemic.
