The second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic has not been kind to India. There have been a lot of issues across the nation and amidst the crisis; we’ve seen people rise to the occasion to make a difference including the ones from the Indian Combat Sports community. The team of Boxx Era belongs to this list of COVID Warriors.
Based out of Delhi, the team mostly consisting of women including boxers Shivani Dahiya, Geeta Solanki, Coach Jeet Sanghavi and Riaz Bhardwaj have been running around the state with their COVID support drive.
Along with their volunteers, the team has been providing free food, medicines, and virtual doctor consultations to the needy. Additionally, they have been instrumental in finding ICU beds and Oxygen cylinders for patients across the state with a success rate of 85% thanks to their coordination with the hospitals and oxygen refilling points. The team members who recovered from COVID have also been donating plasma while providing logistics for the pick and drop of COVID patients.
Although the team is currently not accepting donations for their drive which is fully funded by the team themselves, they have set up a virtual training program designed for people who have recovered from the virus called “Co-fit: Corona Killa Series” with the proceedings from the enrollments being used to support the COVID patients.
We have seen the birth of many superheroes during these desperate times and it would be safe to say that the team of Boxx Era belong to this list.
