Each image is limited to just 50 prints, which are being sold for £100 (approximately $141 / AU$183) including shipping to anywhere in the world. The entirety of the proceeds will be divided up equally and donated to three charities working on the ground in India: 

Khalsa Aid (which is distributing oxygen concentrators in Delhi), the Hemkunt Foundation (distributing oxygen cylinders around Delhi National Capital Region) and Feeding From Far (which is working with NGO Prayatna to distribute food in Mumbai to those severely affected by the pandemic).

The image sale is taking place on www.creativeseva.com, and runs until mid June. This is a wonderful opportunity to get some fantastic pieces of photographic art, while helping an incredible cause and a nation that is in dire need of help.
