In India, the pandemic still rages and obtaining oxygen, let alone hospital treatment, is not easy. On Lag Ba’omer, we sent out an urgent request to our communities across the commonwealth asking them to play their part in aiding the coronavirus crisis currently playing out in India.
In less than two weeks, we have simply been blown away by the generosity of response. The incredible communities in Australia, Barbados, Canada, Eswatini, Gibraltar, Mauritius, Jersey, Malta, Mauritius, Mozambique, South Africa, Uganda, and the U.K. have already stepped up and we feel so thankful to be part of this wonderful network.
The Commonwealth Jewish Council has just sent oxygen concentrators to communities across the country, thanks to many of our smaller communities around the world coming together and donating.
Here the Jews of Ahmedabad, the only Jewish community in Gujarat, receive this life saving machine.
