India's health care system is collapsing. India was the first country in the world to register more than 400,000 new cases in a single 24 hours, which occurred in the first week of May. Unfortunately, 3 people die every minute in India from Covid-19.
As of May 10, 2021, India currently has:
- A 7 day average of 329, 942 new cases of COVID-19
- 3, 876 daily deaths due to COVID-19
The truth is that hundreds of thousands of people in India are not even able to get tested or treated in hospitals, so numbers are likely even larger than any current data.
Water Well-ness Project is committed to helping solve the world water, sanitation and hygiene crisis.
When it comes to the pandemic, preventing it from worsening relies on swift mass vaccination, but also, fundamentally, a hyperfocus on hygiene and sanitation for all. Limiting the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus from person to person through hand washing and using personal protective equipment means less people infected and less people falling sick or dying. India is a country that at baseline, pre-pandemic, had enormous gaps in access to water, sanitation and hygiene services. 97 million people in India live without clean water available close to their home and 535 million people live without toilet and handwashing facilities in their home. The COVID-19 pandemic has placed further stress on an already fragile sanitation and hygiene system.

Please note we unfortunately do not issue official donation receipts since we are a Not-for-Profit Organization, rather than a Charity.
Water Well-ness Project is partnering with the Association for India's Development (AID), a registered charitable organization who is providing Indians access to water and soap for hand washing, masks for preventing infection, and community-level education on limiting the spread of SARS-CoV-2 in India.
AID has worked in India for 20 years promoting sustainable, equitable and just development in the country through collaborating with grassroots organizations in a number of sectors (health, environment, education, and more). They are responding to COVID-19 in the majority of states in India, both in cities and rural regions. Find latest updates on their website.
