MakeMyTrip Foundation helps flood-hit Uttarakhand & HP with ₹5 crore relief fund

MakeMyTrip Foundation has pledged ₹5 crore towards relief efforts in Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand, following heavy rainfall that caused extensive damage. The foundation will work with partners to provide immediate aid to those affected.

MakeMyTrip Foundation started the immediate deployment of 5 crore towards the relief operations after seeing the enormous destruction brought on by severe rainfall in Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand, the business said in an official release.

“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,” said Deep Kalra, Founder and Chairman, of MakeMyTrip and Trustee of MakeMyTrip Foundation.


“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,” Deep added.

According to the official data issued last week, Himachal Pradesh rainfall has caused extensive damage in the hill state, resulting in cloudbursts, landslides, and floods that have so far claimed 108 lives.

Himachal Pradesh continues to be the most severely damaged state in North India, and as a result, Union Home Minister Amit authorised the early release of the second installment of the central share of the State Disaster Response Fund (SDRF), totaling 180.40 crore.
