India has become an epicenter for Coronavirus cases with many frontline workers lacking PPE.
In the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic, a lack of sufficient protective gear available to frontline workers has left a large swath of essential personnel vulnerable to the virus. Doctors, nurses, ambulance workers, waste management, police personnel, and public volunteers throughout the state of Telangana, India have suffered, especially in Warangal, an epicenter of COVID-19. Telangana continues to report a high number of COVID cases. It has risen to 50,826 positive cases and 447 deaths at the
time of this campaign's initiation on 23rd July 2020. Warangal Urban District (of Telangana) "officials locked down 15 areas in the city after they witnessed a surge in COVID-19 cases". To curb the virus from spreading further, entry of outsiders and exit of residents in these 'no-movement areas' is restricted. 79 frontline warriors have fallen prey to COVID in Warangal (Source: The New India Express, Published on 01st August 2020 08:39 AM). Rapid tests identified 117 employees with positive
cases in the last three days, however, testing had to discontinue due to a shortage of kits. The number of COVID-positive cases may go up once testing resumes. Warangal, consisting of over 5,000 frontline workers, 30% of which are at risk for the virus due to advanced age, lie vulnerable as proper PPE equipment remains undelivered. Warangal's need to meet the demands for medical equipment is only expected to rise as turbulent times call for brisk action.
Identifying frontline workers in need and provide them with PPE to limit the spread of COVID-19.
Bannu hospital has identified and contacted frontline workers in Warangal to create efficacious avenues for distribution of PPE. Funds raised by Bannu hospital will be utilized to purchase the necessary equipment and distribute it to the frontline workers for immediate use.
You can help protect 2,000 frontline workers and save lives!
Your donation will help to ensure that necessary personal protective equipment for 2,000 frontline workers in Warangal will be available through Bannu hospital whenever needed. This increase in supplies will save the lives of many frontline workers including healthcare workers during these unprecedented times.

This displays the maximum incremental additional funding the campaign could receive (Maximum Funding Amount (MFA) less Minimum Funding Goal)). For example, if the MFA is $100,000 and the MFG $10,000, it would show the difference of $90,000 here.
