Many people in the Delhi/UP border regions of India are currently suffering fever, some the more potentially dangerous and fatal virus dengue. A number of members of the Amida group based in the area of Shanti Nagar have fallen ill and at least one, Amida shu member Rakesh has been hospitalised. Rev. Suvidya, our minister, also has a worsening fever. This morning he put out a call for help on Facebook as members of his community have little money and will struggle to pay for the anti-virals to treat their symptoms. I spoke to him on Friday and at that time he was also telling me that Rakesh's family would only be able to pay two thirds of his hospital bill (about 50,000 Indian Rupees). In paying what they can they will be in debt and most likely have little money available to buy food and other essentials.
On the behalf of Amida Delhi we would like to ask for your help by making a donation so that members of the community can buy the medicines and obtain the medical care they need. We know times are hard and that there are many other causes and citizens of the world facing extreme hardships; burdened with illness, disease and famine. However this is a group of people who are also our colleagues, who are doing Amida's compassionate work with others and who really do need our support at the moment. If you can spare something please do donate by following the link (:: here) on the left of this page "SUPPORT NEPAL & INDIA" and click the "DONATE" button.
All money will go to Rev. Suvidya to directly enable the provision of medicines and care to his congregation.
