Halari Visa Oshwals support India’s COVID Relief efforts

Dear Halari Visa Oshwals in USA – Following Saturday’s JAINA program, we are wanting to engage with JAINA to join their India’s COVID Relief efforts, which will be matched if we commit by Monday (6/14).  If we get to about 50k (depending on factors like size, location, etc), with JAINA’s matching funds, we be able to provide a full unit, which would include recognition for the Halari Visa Oshwal organization. If you are interested in financially supporting this effort please reach out to Jayanti Galaiya (908 887 2905 jgalaiya@gmail.com) or Raju M Shah (443 996 3778 raju.shah@aya.yale.edu).
