Ashwini & Arun Kumar's India COVID-19 relief campaign

Fundraising for Save Lives, Save India

We have been active volunteers of Vibha.org for 13 years now. In these 13 years we have reached out to you multiple times for education of underprivileged children, but this is the strongest we have to felt to seek your support. We have seen the situation first hand in Mumbai and Bangalore, where the heath-care system is trembling with fear. We have experienced the pain and suffering of losing dear ones. One of the most powerful emotions anyone can feel is fear, and other one is love. Spreading love comes naturally to all of us. If you are planning to help financially or by volunteering your time, Act Now because it is time! 

Thank you,

Ashwini & Arun Kumar
