India is currently facing its biggest health crisis, with the country recording over million covid-19 cases in the past three days. The World Health Organization (WHO) chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus stated during a virtual briefing in Geneva on Friday that the situation in India is a devastating reminder of what the virus can do. Apart from citizens of the country trying to help the people in need across the country through several social media channels, hospitals are sending SOS messages on social media due to the lack of oxygen supplies and medical facilities. BTS Army has raised more than Rs in less than 24 hours and still pushing the goal forward. 20 lakh, around 8.05 pm IST for the COVID-19 in India on April 24, 2021. The target of this fundraiser is to tap into a resource pool that is not accessible to several NGOs and activists engaged in mutual aid workers. Aside from that, many are overwhelmed with on-ground work and cannot focus on the logistical aspects of seeking or organising donations. BTS Army wanted to assist in whatever capacity they can and ensure that it will be done with complete transparency.
