India has been hit hard by the pandemic, previously reporting the world's highest daily coronavirus deaths.

Proceeds will be used to provide critical facilities such as oxygen concentrators, cylinders, ventilators, and essential medicines as well as ICU units.

Funds will also go towards supporting the staffing of vaccination centers and those who have lost livelihoods due to Covid-19.
