Scenes of people in India begging for oxygen during the nation's record Covid surge have shocked and moved the world. joker123 wallet And no-one has been more moved than the global Indian diaspora. So how are those in the UK responding to the crisis?In a Hindu temple in Wembley, north-west London, the small congregation is chanting a special prayer for people thousands of miles away.
The Hanuman Chalisa is a devotional hymn believed to have immense power for helping those in need.But for many people in Britain's Indian communities, their minds are on very practical ways to help as well."There isn't a member of the diaspora who hasn't been touched by the events going on in India," says Manoj Badale, chairman of the British Asian Trust.
"I have plenty of family in India, my sister's a doctor, my niece and nephews are doctors. We're hearing terrible stories. It's really astonishing how the challenge has exponentially increased over the last week."
The trust, run by British Asians to support development projects, is focusing its efforts on "the single most clear and present danger" to people in India: lack of oxygen.
The Prince of Wales has endorsed the trust's emergency appeal, saying those suffering in India were in his thoughts and prayers.
He said Indian aid and ingenuity had been a support to other countries through the pandemic. "As India has helped others, so now must we help India," he said.
The prince has made a personal donation to the trust's Oxygen for India campaign.The appeal has already raised hundreds of thousands of pounds to buy oxygen concentrators - devices that can provide the enriched gas straight from the air, to treat patients when hospital supplies are under strain.
The trust is not alone: another independent Gofundme campaign run by British Indians blew past its initial goal of £160,000 - enough to buy 200 oxygen concentrators - in just one day.
Its total now stands at more than £300,000.
