India has become the epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic. With record breaking daily infections, despite extremely low testing rates, it is difficult to fully grasp the scale of India’s second wave. One thing is certain, India is in a crisis and their healthcare system is completely overwhelmed.
I’ve been speaking with my partners in India about how to help the region where I produce my product. I have been put in contact with Ramkrishna Sewashram Hospital, a non-profit NGO based in Mirzapur, India. Mirzapur and the surrounding region is where a large portion of my rugs are produced. This small hospital has quickly pivoted to treat COVID-19, but they are in dire need of supplies and support to keep up with the flow of patients.
