Let us share that she has issued an urgent appeal to raise funds for India, which is experiencing one of the worst outbreaks of COVID-19. Ms Jayapal said on Friday that "India needs our help and it's our moral responsibility to rise to the challenge. This is a global pandemic and until we crush the virus everywhere, we cannot fully recover,".
For your information let us share that Pramila Jayapal has recently in India to visit her family before the surge spiraled out of control. She informed that all the funds raised would go to three initiatives. First is the WISH Foundation, which works round-the-clock to set up COVID-19 care centres.
