Asha COVID-19 Emergency Response: ASHA USA organise the first Virtual Fundraiser to raise funds for Asha
Amidst the outbreak of COVID 19, Sacramento Chapter of ASHA-USA organised the Virtual Fundraiser, the first of its kind on June 27, 2020. Every year Friends of Asha- USA organises ASHA (Day) fundraiser event in the month of September but this year the Friends of Asha decided to prepone the event to raise the funds for the work of Asha during COVID 19. It was not only a great way to network and fundraise virtually but also the donors got an opportunity to hear a live update on Asha’s emergency COVID-19 response from Asha Founder and Director Dr. Kiran Martin.
Dr. Kiran updated the supporters on the situation in Delhi. The nationwide lockdown from 24th March to 8th June highly damaged the living conditions of most slum dwellers but Asha anticipated the situation and immediately responded. Dr Kiran also replied to the queries of the attendees. Click on the link to watch Dr Kiran narrating the Asha’s COVID-19 emergency response: https://youtu.be/99DOqKJqYV0
