Vineet Mishra, a businessman from Rajendra Nagar, works for the same NGO that helped Nushak’s family. He said, ‘When we started getting requests for help, we started a helpline on 23 April. Apart from arranging beds and medical supplies, we have recently distributed ration to around 100 families. We have even tied up with various dealers to provide ‘antifungal injections’ to the hospitals with black fungus.

Riya Pushkar, general secretary of the CWC body, said, “We collect all the leads available on social media, verify them personally and also make the authentic leads go viral so that the victims are helped at the earliest. We arranged for ICU beds, essential medicine, plasma donor and food distribution information on a daily basis.
