NRIVA (NRI Vasavi Association), a non-profit organization based in the USA, stands in solidarity with families across India who are battling the devastating second wave of Covid-19.

NRIVA’s COVID response team quickly set up a Call(Chat)-A-Doc facility with Medical Professionals who treated 1000s COVID patients across the world including more than 20 doctors who are available to answer, review the reports, guide, suggest, and counsel COVID patients and impacted families. We also have set up a volunteer army to guide the families with the right information and also helping them to find hospital beds, plasma, oxygen concentrators, connecting with the blood banks, medicine kits, serving food, etc.
We also developed an NRIVA COVID Response App with a vast database of information that can help 1000s of families with the right information to find the services needed during the COVID time.
NRIVA humanitarian efforts have received an overwhelming response from the community members for the outreach we provided. A very BIG thanks to all donors and volunteers as NRIVA was able to procure 100’s of oxygen concentrators and cylinders, 500+ plasma donations, 10,000 thermometers, more than 5000 medicine kits, 100s of oximeters, and serve 1000’s needy families with food and groceries with their help.
