12 May 2021

Partnering with UNICEF to help save lives

The SA Indian Medical Association (SAIMA) is a member based organisation of Medical Practitioners, Dentists, Nurses, Allied Health Professionals, Medical Students and International Medical Graduates in Adelaide, South Australia. Interested in the Indian subcontinent, sharing a love of South Australia and moved by the COVID-19 situation in India, SAIMA are fundraising to help UNICEF save lives and deliver urgent supplies to health centres in India.

India’s current COVID-19 crisis has seen the death toll surpass 250,000 people, and the total number of infections rise above 23 million. More than 390,000 new cases are being reported daily, and hospitals and health centres across the country are collapsing under the number of new cases, with oxygen, hospital beds and essential drugs running out, even in large towns and cities.

Please join with SAIMA and help UNICEF rush critical lifesaving supplies and services to protect families and communities in India.

Your support will:

  • Increase access to life-saving oxygen by delivering Oxygen Generation Plants to hospitals to treat severe and critical COVID-19 cases.
  • Provide rapid, accurate testing machines in some of the most affected districts.
  • Support the ongoing distribution of COVID-19 vaccines through the UNICEF-supported COVAX initiative.

Your donation can go a long way to saving lives.

$50 can help deliver enough vaccines to protect 10 people from COVID-19
$95 could help deliver 5 affordable, reliable and accessible COVID-19 testing kits
$234 can help keep an OXYGEN Generation Plant running for 2 hours
