Faisal Edhi offers Foundation’s help in tackling India’s Covid-19 crisis

Faisal Edhi chairman of the Edhi Foundation and the son of renowned philanthropist Abdul Sattar Edhi has written a letter to Indian PM rime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday.

In his letter, Faisal Edhi has expressed his concern about the Covid-19 pandemic situation in India and offered his help in confronting the epidemic.

A press release from the organization said that Faisal Edhi would depart with his team of volunteers as soon as he receives permission from the Indian government.

“We, at the Edhi Foundation, have been closely following the current impact that the Covid-19 crisis has had on the people of India”, the letter stated.

“We are very sorry to hear about the exceptionally heavy impact that the pandemic has had on your country, where a tremendous number of people are suffering immensely,” said Faisal in his letter.

He stressed that Edhi Foundation sympathizes with India during this difficult time and offered help in the form of “a fleet of 50 ambulances along with our services to assist you in addressing, and further circumventing, the current health conditions”.

“We are willing and ready to deploy our team into any critical areas of concern at your direction without hesitation,” he said.

“We look forward to assisting you in managing the current humanitarian crises, and hope only to provide our help in whatever way that we can, for the benefit of the people of India.”

COVID-19 has become a public health crisis in India leading to a collapse of the healthcare system. 

India reported 332,730 new cases and 2,263 deaths in the past 24 hours as fire in a hospital treating COVID patients kills 13 in Maharashtra state.
