It is during times of uncertainty that the strength of humanity is tested. The COVID-19 pandemic that is haunting the globe right now has left many to wonder if there is even light at the end of this long dark tunnel!

 

While a COVID-19 free world is the dream of many health care workers and researchers who are tirelessly working to find ways to contain this virus, the COVID 19 Tamil task force has been put together with the only aim of helping and supporting all Americans in this time of need.

 

The task force has trained board certified doctors and volunteers who irrespective of their origins and roots stand united by the common humanitarian goal – support and help individuals and communities who have been impacted by COVID -19
