Several Indian-American organisations have mobilised resources and raised millions for Covid-19 relief in India, which is battling the second wave of the pandemic, according to a media report. In May, Indiaspora, a non-profit community of global Indian diaspora leaders, announced the launch of the ‘ChaloGive for India’ campaign which began with an initial $1 million raised through their private donor network of members, reports American Bazaar.

In a tweet the community said: “Thank you for the outpouring of support toward Covid-19 relief efforts in India. We are launching ChaloGive to continue the momentum. “No matter where you are in the world, you can give and make an impact.” Another leading community organization, the American India Foundation (AIF) announced in May that it has partnered with digital payments leader Paytm “to provide oxygen concentrators in India”.
