Many of our members had expressed concern over the dire COVID-19 situation in India. The South Asian Bar Association of British Columbia partnered with Hillsdale Investment Management and other SABA chapters throughout the country (SABA Toronto, South Asian Bar Association – Calgary (SABA Calgary) and SABA Edmonton) to create a donation matching program so that your donations could have a larger impact. This program was circulated over our social media profiles over the last few weeks.
A huge thank you to those who donated through the SABA & Hillsdale Help India fundraiser for UNICEF India. We have now surpassed our goal and raised more than $36,000! Your generosity has made a difference: over the last month, a total of 16630 oxygen concentrators; 15961 oxygen cylinders; 19 oxygen generation plants; 11516 ventilators/Bi PAP; and about 6.9 L of Remdesivir vials have been delivered/dispatched. SABA would also like to thank Hillsdale for matching donations up to $15,000! We and UNICEF India appreciate the support.
