In the month of April 2015, we saw one of the harshest natural calamities in the world history. A massive earthquake claimed more than 9000 lives and injured thousands more while also damaging properties and livelihoods in Nepal.
Around the world, people stepped up to help Nepal rebuild itself in the face of this catastrophe. People lost lives but humanity is far from being dead. We all wanted to help our brothers and sisters in Nepal. As an organisation, we wanted to best use our country-wide network productively so we thought we’d ask our customers to help us help Nepal. http://olablog.wpengine.com/contribute-to-the-pms-relief-fund-to-nepal/
Our purpose was to facilitate the contribution to the Prime Minister’s Relief Fund for our customers who wanted to help. Together with our customers, we raised a sum of Rs. 35 lakhs.
We’re delighted to let you know that Arvind Singhatiya, VP, Corporate Affairs met with Mr. Nitin Gadkari, Hon’ Minister of Transport – Govt. of India to hand him the cheque yesterday. Arvind was accompanied by a group of our Ola drivers while handing Mr. Nitin Gadkari the cheque.
We thank everyone for their contribution and pray that our contribution helps Nepal in rebuilding its future.
