Gurugram, India: In the wake of the unprecedented devastation in the states of Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand, MakeMyTrip Foundation initiates the immediate deployment of INR 5 crores towards relief efforts. The Foundation will work with a network of on-ground partners, government bodies, experts, NGOs, and locals to help operationalize immediate relief efforts.
Deep Kalra, Founder & Chairman, MakeMyTrip and Trustee, MakeMyTrip Foundation said, “There is an urgent need to send essential resources to aid the people of Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand as they grapple with the extensive damages caused by the recent flooding. MakeMyTrip is a conduit for the discovery of the unparalleled beauty of these states. Therefore, it is incumbent upon us to also help the local community in their time of need.”
“The current situation in these mountain states is trying, and requires a collective effort by each and every one of us. Small contributions will go a long way in aiding the emergency response action and enhance the quality of lives of the local communities who play host to us when we visit their home state,” added Deep.
Since its inception in 2015, MakeMyTrip Foundation has consistently focused on impacting destinations, people, and the environment. It believes nurturing local communities is the key to ensuring a healthy environment for tourism while preserving them for future generations. The Foundation has stepped up to the plate all through the nation’s efforts to fight Covid by creating the Aarogya Setu app, launching CoviRide (a community participation platform to assist with transport related solutions), and working with local government bodies and NGOs for community initiatives. The Foundation also augmented relief efforts in the aftermath of Cyclone Fani in Odisha and the 2019 Kerala floods. This latest initiative is in keeping with this very value system.
