With a rising number of positive coronavirus cases, several parts of India have gone into lockdown. And while humans have been finding myriad ways to deal with the lockdown, stray animals might end up becoming an unforeseen casualty of the lockdown.
Wockhardt Foundation, a not-for-profit organization, a name generally associated with healthcare and sanitation has aimed to support animals during this COVID-19 lockdown.
It aims to raise funds to feed to the millions of stray animals that might not find food in this lockdown. The Foundation has started this campaign to act on the advisory of Animal Welfare Board of India that highlights the need to care for animals in case of a lockdown.
Sir-Dr Huz, CEO of Wockhardt Foundation said “At time when all funds are being directed towards humans, we felt we need to support our animals, too.”
Wockhardt Foundation has partnered with Bezubaan Public Welfare Trust for this project.
