Airbnb is partnering with GiveIndia to raise funds for underprivileged segments of the society who are directly impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.
On 11 March, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19 a global pandemic. To combat the coronavirus and flatten the curve, the government has taken swift action to slow the spread of COVID-19, including a nationwide lockdown. During these unprecedented circumstances, India’s underprivileged communities have been especially impacted by the scale and impact of this crisis, with little or no access to required essentials.
The funds raised by Airbnb and GiveIndia will help support affected daily wage earners and migrant labourers, some of whom are stranded miles away from their loved ones. The funds will go towards providing families across the country with food essentials including rice, daal, salt, oil, soap and more.
In these difficult times, we are appealing to members of our Airbnb community to support this fundraising initiative. Together, we can create a positive impact that can help our marginalised and vulnerable communities. Your support and contribution will give these families hope and strength as we fight this crisis together.
