In these unprecedented times, it is important that we come together and help our communities as much as we can. The rising cases of Covid-19 in India has now affected more than 4.3M people in the country with the commercial capital of India, Mumbai, crossing over 1,50,000 cases; there’s an immediate need for help.
Binance Charity, the world’s first blockchain-powered donation platform, partnered with Vaibhav Chabbra founder of Mumbai’s Makers Asylum, a collaborative makerspace, to produce over 43,000 face shields to be distributed in 30+ hospitals, police stations and NGOs across India.
“The healthcare community in India is fighting a tough battle against COVID19. We are aware that it will take a while for things to get back in shape but all our doctors and nurses are giving more than 100% to keep doing what they need to. In times like these it is encouraging to have some help and we are very thankful to Binance Charity Foundation for the same”
