Indian-Americans set up helpline amid Covid crisis

Washington, March 16

Several eminent Indian-American groups in the US have set up helplines and deployed volunteers to help community members, including a large number of Indian students, hit by the coronavirus crisis. Sewa International, a leading Indian-American non-profit organization, has released USD 10,000 to run its 24X7 helpline and coronavirus awareness campaign through a team of 20 physicians. It has also established various chapters across the country who are working with the Indian Embassy and consulates to help families obtain visas to travel to India in emergency situations. "Sewa has fielded calls from Indian foreign students from universities who are finding it difficult to cope up emotionally, health wise and financially," said Prof Sree Sreenath, president of Sewa International.
