Virtual Benefit Concert 2020 with international Artists
At the onset of Covid 19, when the world was shut down. DanRan Team came up with a novel virtual concert option. This was more than just music – it’s about a mission. The COVID-19 pandemic may have forced everyone to stay at home, but it hasn’t stopped acts of kindness nor silenced messages of hope. Here is a community-lead effort to have a global impact.
On May 12, 2020 (International Nurses Day), The “Daily Show with DanRam” gathered 14 GLOBAL musicians to put on a Virtual Benefit Concert for nurses on the frontline of our pandemic. It’s a one time historic event that could make a lifetime difference for those nurses.
Due to overcrowded hospitals, milder COVID+ patients are asked to take medication at home. Unfortunately those under the poverty line can't afford this crucial medication. We've so far sponsored 50 medical kits based on written prescriptions by doctors who are identifying such patients.
We source ingredients, cook every morning and distribute 200 meals a day outside 2 government hospitals. These are COVID+ patients and their immediate families who are currently in the red zone. The meals are high in protein with added immunity boosters to help patients recover faster.
When we heard the plight of families who had lost their only breadwinner to COVID, we knew we had to do something. We have donated a month's supply of hygiene and food items to 30 families so far. We meet each family and know that these provisions are a God send in their time of need.
Although expensive, this hospital equipment is often the difference between life or death. Despite a critical shortage, with incredible perseverance we managed to buy and gift concentrators at 2 hospitals. The deans of these hospitals have promised to use this equipment even beyond the COVID crisis.
