With the death toll mounting to 384 and around two lakh people living in relief camps across the state, a red alert is in action in all 14 districts of Kerela. While we know, that the situation is hard to manage we can put forward our initiatives. Besides that, a lot of organizations have now come up to help Kerela Fight against these disastrous conditions. To support Kerala survive against these floods, the service sector industries are contributing a bit.
Millions of Kerala tenants are living in unfavorable conditions due to the massive 2088 mm. That is an increase of 30 percent over our expectations. Besides all the efforts the armed forces are making, some companies are willing to help. That includes, Amazon India and Paytm are accepting donations for the relief activities.
You can contribute to one of the Kerala relief and recovery programs by choosing any of the following options:
Paytm has an option to donate to one of the non-profit charity profiles. Just open the Paytm app, and you’ll see the specific option on the front page. If you don’t see the option in the first 11 navigation blocks, tap on the More option. Now, you can navigate to the “Kerala Floods” option to allow you to donate to the CM’s relief fund.
Besides that, you can also choose to donate to any other non-profit charitable agency by tapping on the “Donate To” option. To continue with the transaction, you need to enter your name and then just hit the proceed button. Once done, you’ll receive a confirmation mail from Paytm.
Now, if you keep on scrolling Amazon App on your Smartphone every day, you would have seen a list of NGO somewhere. Tap on the listing, and it will redirect to a page showing the list of NGO’s working with Amazon India. There you’ll find an NGO, collecting relief funds for the Kerela.
You can donate to these NGO’s according to what your budget allows. You have to add items to the cart and pick the NGO’s address in the delivery address option. Then you can proceed to pay like your regular Amazon transaction.
