How can Wikimedians from other parts of the world donate money or material supplies to this initiative? Deryckchan (talk) 20:53, 1 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Hello Deryckchan, this particular initiative is funded by WMF, through A2K's (APG) program and this does not have an option to donate. Thanks for your kind message. If the program gets expanded requiring donations, we'll let you know. Regards. -- টিটো দত্ত (কথা) 08:27, 3 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

add minimum financial support for non-government contributors[edit]

Thanks indeed for this initatives. i filled the google support form. More than a decade (SUL), i am contributing for Tamil WMF projects. Due to my community friend's support, i am still practicing in WMF projects. As a private legal typist, i am earning a low income 1.2 to 1.5 lakh INR per annum. My laptop, my internet connectivity, etc., are gifted by CIS (INDIA) and also from my community friends. I travelled many Indic meet-ups which are arranged by the CIS. During that time, i meet many other Indic community friends. Kindly select atleast 2 contributors from each Indic community and give financial stipend support (per month around Rs.3000-00) for a year.--Info-farmer (talk) 09:51, 6 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Can we leverage this GoFundMe campaign?[edit]

Indians from my alma mater have announced [1] run by [2] with reporting at [3].

Frankly, I was expecting to see a donations link on Google's main page by now, but perhaps we can--as a stopgap measure--ask that such links be included on a Wikimedia- wide global site notice to set an example for the for-profits. My understanding is that this should be proposed on email to wikimedia-l, so please do so to second this motion. Thank you. 2601:647:4D00:2C40:D4C6:B464:AD8:7BF2 17:26, 10 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Oxygen tanks?[edit]

My understanding is that the most severe shortage at present is inhalation-grade oxygen tanks and pressurized oxygen generation equipment. Do we have the capacity to facilitate procurement and shipping of those? 2601:647:4D00:2C40:D4C6:B464:AD8:7BF2 17:29, 10 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

No, we don't have the capacity or the funds to do that. Sorry. -- Bodhisattwa (talk) 06:25, 24 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
