Praava Health has received a donation from One Million Masks - a charitable organisation based in New York in the United States to support its work in the global fight against Covid-19.

The donation is being made to offset the cost of sequencing Covid-19 samples - a project that Praava is currently working with the research foundation Child Health Research Foundation (CHRF) to identify which variants are captured in the samples being processed at Praava Health, said a press relesae.

Data from Praava Health’s samples are contributing to GISAID, a global, open-access repository of SARS-CoV-2 genome sequences. The amount of the donation is not being made public.

One Million Masks is a grassroots initiative started by NewsCred CoFounder and CEO and CEO at Welcome Software Shafqat Islam.
