From ensuring assistance in providing immediate and timely support for healthcare emergencies in the communities to dealing with emerging requirements for COVID testing, COVID care kits, home isolation support, COVID Care Centres, oxygen cylinders, hospitalisation, arranging tele-consultation with doctors, and sourcing medicines among other requests, the Dream a Dream team helped fulfil 463 medical requests over the last few months. A secondary outcome of the COVID-19 induced healthcare crisis was the economic crisis due to the extended lockdowns resulting in increased hunger and poverty.
