Indo-Arab Helping Hands (IAHH), a group of Indian professionals working in Saudi Arabia who earned appreciation for their work with Covid  relief in India, has now come forward to raise awareness about the post-Covid fungal infection Mucormycosis or black fungus, which has taken a toll of dozens of lives in India.

More than 11000 black fungus cases have been reported till date, throwing a fresh challenge before the doctors and scientists of the country,

IAHH founder Asif Rameez Daudi, a faculty member of King Abdul Aziz University in Jeddah,  along with his entire team recently organized a webinar on the topic “Stop the spread of Balck Fungus: Save your loved ones” to keep people abreast of the latest information on the deadly infection which doctors have described as a post-Covid complication.

The webinar, conducted by Asad Ali and Naila Saeed, was attended by a varied mix of people – a parliamentarian, an editor, as also doctors.

Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) president and MP Vinay Sahasrabuddhe appreciated the commendable social services of non-resident Indians throughout the globe and emphasized that the need of the hour was to join hands to reach out to those who really needed help. He highlighted IAHH’s efforts, calling the group “ambassadors of the people of India”.

He said by presenting the ‘idea of India’ in the Gulf countries, IAHH was strengthening the country’s cultural relations with countries in the Middle East.

When the second Covid wave was battering India, the IAHH started a drive on social media to make available plasma, blood, oxygen and oxygen cylinders to the victims.

They opened a WhatsApp group and a Facebook page to provide a common platform to the Indians in Saudi Arabia and those in India who needed help to recover from Covid.
