Jay Shree Swaminarayan,

No doubt, you will have seen in the news that the catastrophic second wave of COVID-19 has overwhelmed the healthcare systems in India. To see their struggle is heart-breaking; hospitals are unbearably full and oxygen supplies are running low.

To aid this, East London Mandir have opened up a fundraising programme for the purchase and distribution of essential kits such as masks, sanitisers, medications, oximeters, ventilators and oxygen concentrators, all with the help of local organisations.

Please donate generously and safely via https://www.eltemple.uk/donation (by BACS, PayPal or in person at the mandir desk) and identify your donation as COVID-19.


As of the 5th of May, with the support of our members, we released £7,295.08 with Gift Aid, to Sewa International (SewaUK) who are already on the ground, and will be using our funds to purchase 5 and 10 litre oxygen concentrators. 

On the 19th of May, a further £6,049.19 was raised and released to Shree Swaminarayan Mandir – Bhuj, who will be using these funds towards the Covid-19 crisis.

That’s a total of £13,344.27 raised for the Covid-19 India Appeal, we thank everyone who has made this possible!
