Israeli NGO IsraAID and Israel-based NGO SmartAid have begun sending planeloads of medical equipment and supplies to COVID-ravaged India. SmartAID will explore technological solutions to help the country cope with an unprecedented upsurge in CIVD-19 cases. India is reporting more than 350,000 new cases per day — although many experts believe the actual figure is far higher.
Quote: “The scale of the crisis currently unfolding in India is simply overwhelming,” said Yotam Polizer, CEO of IsraAID, an Israeli non-governmental humanitarian aid agency. “As a humanitarian organization that has responded to COVID-19 in 17 countries up-to-now, we felt we could not just stand by.”
