India is the second-worst hit country for COVID-19 in the world. Over 6 million cases have been diagnosed so far, with that figure rising by approximately 90,000 each day. Vital funding from Rotary Stratford London and on the ground support from Rotary Jubilee Hill Hyderabad has augmented COVID-19 testing capabilities for the most vulnerable at Lepra’s Blue Peter Health and Research Centre (BPHRC) in Telangana State, India. So far, the centre has carried out more than 2,500 tests.
We are extremely grateful to Rotary Stratford London and Rotary Jubilee Hills Hyderabad for their invaluable support.
Geoff Prescott, Lepra CEO explains the importance of our collaboration with Rotary International, Rotary Stratford London and Rotary Jubilee Hills Hyderabad.
