India recently started seeing a dip in newly confirmed Covid-19 cases. The country witnessed a deadly second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic. It had impacted the healthcare sector and the economy in its wake.
In such unprecedented times, many people resorted to crowdfunding platforms in India to raise funds for their medical treatments and also for personal or social causes. It is a simple concept, here is how it works.
As the lockdown restrictions are eased in many parts of the country, there seems to be some sort of relief from the pandemic although it might be temporary, taking into account the possibility of a third wave by experts.
We must prepare in advance for the third wave, here are some ways in which you can help the community during these difficult times:

For medical treatment-
You can start a fundraiser on behalf of patients who are suffering from Covid-19 complications, mucormycosis or any other ailments. In this way you could help them raise funds for their treatment.
Helping the unemployed-
Many people lost their jobs during the pandemic, most of them were breadwinners and now they’re trying to make ends meet. Senior citizens were confined to their homes and couldn’t receive care.
You could do your part and raise funds to provide these people with food grains, grocery items and vaccination registrations.
For children who are dropping out of school-
Many kids are dropping out of school due to inability to pay fees or the absence of mobile phones and internet. You can start a fundraiser on behalf of these children and provide them with these basic necessities.
Starting a fundraiser to help somebody would only take 5 minutes of your time, remember you can make a whole lot of difference in the lives of these people.
As the dust settles around the second wave of Covid-19 in India, we mustn’t let our guard down, we have to prepare ourselves for the third wave which looks imminent.
