The entire world stands by in hope of some respite from the unprecedented scale of the pandemic. New Jersey is among the most heavily impacted regions in the world. Those on the front lines are putting themselves through a physical and psychological gauntlet to serve the rest of the community, sacrificing their safety and time with their families to pull us out of this mayhem. They need help.
Dr. Ramya who works at St. Claires Hospital shared that “Doctors need N-95 masks as they get even visibly dirty within couple of hours and we are wearing the same mask all day long.”
Dr. Santosh from Newton Medical Center responded by thanking North Jersey VT Director, Ms. Anjani Ji for offering to help them in this critical situation and stated how the doctors are getting affected by the virus, getting critical within no time and were being on Ventilators because of the scarcity of the PPE equipment.
With your support, VT Seva, North Jersey was able to rise to the occasion and provide the following support to the community:
6000 meals to children of low income families through Parsippany Food Pantry
4413 N-95 masks to Newton Medical Center, St. Claire Hospitals, and other local hospitals
1350 meals to most vulnerable daily wage workers in India
VT Seva North Jersey team actively partnering with Parsippany Food Pantry since January 2020. We donated 1200 lbs of food and personal supplies in January 2020 and look forward to partner with them to help fight hunger in North Jersey community.
Thank you for your continued support and we hope you join us in serving in these times of need!
