The deadly second wave of Covid-19 hit India in April last year. There was a sudden spike in demands for medical Oxygen, hospital beds, medicines etc. The Sewa International was at the forefront providing humanitarian services to the needy.
Sandeep Khadkekar, Sewa’s Vice President for Marketing and Fund Development, said,“Non-profits supporting India’s Covid-19 crisis received a groundswell of support, including Sewa International. Our earnest thanks to Benevity Inc. for keeping track of these trends and identifying Sewa’s increasing support from corporations and their people.”

Even a cursory look at their activities in the last two decades is enough to say the organisation has been brilliantly guided by its vision statement.
