HFTP Helps


Deadline, May 31, 2021

Ready to take part in relief efforts to allay the heightened Covid-19 crisis in India, HFTP Helps has organized a fundraiser to support organizations providing much-needed medical equipment to India.  

HFTP Global is working in partnership with its HFTP India members and HFTP Dubai Chapter to encourage its network of hospitality professionals to donate to the HFTP Helps Covid-19 India Relief Drive. The aggregated donations will be distributed to vetted organizations working to supply equipment such as oxygen concentrators and ventilators.

HFTP Helps is organized via the HFTP Foundation which is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. All donations are tax deductable.

India, with the world's largest vaccine-making capacity, had donated or exported more than 66 million doses of vaccine before its own needs jumped because of the recent surge in infections. It is currently in dire need of oxygen and will soon need ventilators to meet the surge of critically ill patients.

“With this unfathomable crisis emerging in the region, it is critical to model the same kind of compassion India offered the world prior to the surge. This very much aligns with the tradition of Seva, the practice of selfless service. Beyond its role as a professional organization supporting industry education and resources, HFTP has traditionally drawn from its network to support communities in need. Our ‘hospitality’ roots `inspire us to give.”
