Helpling Others Get Medical Care

For much of the population in India, there is no access to healthcare. It's not free, and the poverty rate is so high. Nearly 60% of the population lives on less than $3/day.

Direct Medical Access

Direct Access to medical care is something the poor in India don’t have the luxury of experiencing.

For much of the population in India, there is no access to healthcare.  It’s not free, and the poverty rate is so high.  Nearly 60% of the population lives on less than $3/day.  If you can’t afford to see a doctor, you just can’t get the care you need.  You have to pay to go to the hospital, or even get a check-up.

Now that Covid 19 has become rampant in the country, there is nowhere to turn.  Only people who can afford it can get treatment for Coronavirus and the supplies of oxygen, ventilators, and other health care items are running out.  There are grave shortages of supplies during this extreme emergency.  The Mantis Foundation is helping to care for those affected by Covid 19 and providing care.
