In May, when Cyclone Fani hit Odisha, we used the strength of our platform to do our bit and galvanized our resources to help those affected on the ground. With the help of our users, our teams and the team at Feeding India, we were able to make quite a difference. We raised close to ₹1 crore – which supported 10 villages – and touched a lot of lives in a positive way. Staying true to our transparency principles, we shared a cent-by-cent report on how we utilized the collected funds for Odisha.
Yesterday, a similar unfortunate calamity hit the states of Assam and Bihar and it’s time for all of us come together to extend help to those affected by the ongoing deluge of floods. Millions of people are directly bearing the brunt of these floods. Over the last 24 hours we have been seeing heartbreaking images and videos pouring in from the two states, and are now opening our platform to divert aid to the affected areas.
Starting today, you will be able to contribute food for the victims affected in Assam and Bihar – at a donation of ₹50 for one meal, ₹500 for 10 and ₹5000 for 100. To go a step further, you can also volunteer to serve food with Feeding India volunteers (aka Hunger Heroes) in the affected areas in both the states
We understand the magnitude of the current devastation in place, but also know that no amount or effort is too small when the intentions are noble. So yes, we will continue to contribute to this cause through our tiny steps #techforgood
