The battle to stop the ravaging effects of COVID-19 in India still continues unabated. After several celebrities came together to raise funds for India to help tackle the COVID-19 crisis, American singers Camila Cabello and Katy Perry on Sunday stepped forward, urging fans to donate for India.

Taking it to her Instagram handle, Camila posted a video message for her fans where she is heard saying, “Hey guys! India is facing a devastating second wave of COVID-19. There have been 18 million cases reported and the healthcare system simply does not have enough resources to care for everybody. They need protective equipment, oxygen and medicine to save lives.” She further mentioned the fundraisers where one can donate and said, “Any amount that you can donate whether it is USD 10 or USD 1000, will be super helpful and will be super matched.”

“I love India and it’s beautiful beautiful culture, let’s help in any way we can,” the ‘Senorita’ star concluded.

Along with the video that was viewed by more than a million social media users, the songstress wrote, “India is facing a devastating second wave of COVID infections and needs resources and support to help save lives. If you can, please help @jayshetty and @radhidevlukia raise USD 1M for @give_india and their generous sponsor @indiaspora will match it! Every dollar will be doubled so we can try our best to make a difference! Click the link on this post to donate now.”

Katy shared an infographic on the resources that Indians need to effectively fight the pandemic. “You may have heard about the devastation the pandemic is having in India right now: Each day a new world record is set for the number of Covid cases (386,453 JUST TODAY according to @NPR) with the peak still to come. Hospitals have stopped admitting patients because they are running low on vital supplies and equipment, including oxygen, leaving people to watch loved ones die on stretchers outside the hospital doors. My friends at the @thebritishasiantrust are trying to help by getting as many oxygen concentrators to hospitals as quickly as possible. If you’d like to help, please consider donating at the link in my bio,” she posted on Instagram.
