The intervention encompasses the strengthening of the health institutions with required infrastructure, expert manpower and other essential resources.

The current manpower is equipped to handle Paediatric cases which are the key concern under the Omicron pandemic spread.
Mindful of the importance of cohesive rural healthcare, the services aimed at strengthening the facilities in place with infrastructure support to improve the quality of healthcare. An efficient rural healthcare system is a testimony of a country with strong healthcare that is focused on disbursing quality and dignified healthcare to all people irrespective of the difference in class, caste, religion, gender or economic status.
Talking about this initiative, Sandeep Nailwal, Founder of Crypto Relief said, “Amid the third COVID wave, we are closely working with the group of health institutions to provide healthcare needs during this surge. The infrastructure provided by CRF will help with quality healthcare services and aid relief from the major health crisis.”
In addition, Sandeep Nailwal’s Crypto Relief fund was instrumental in building rural and tribal district’s capacity in six districts for the COVID current wave, where far-flung districts such as Pulwama, tribal areas such as Lasadiya and aspirational districts such as Nuh have been provided necessary medical capital equipment, medical personnel and capacity building to support healthcare services to directly impact health outcomes and additionally adding 500 more COVID beds in remote areas.
