Kerala floods have taken away lives of hundreds and made many people homeless. In light of these issues, many E-commerce websites have joined hands with the government in donating to Kerala’s Chief Minister Disaster Relief Fund. Paytm introduced an option of donating money directly to the CMDRF and collected Rs.30 Crore from 12 Lakh Paytm Users. Similarly, Amazon also partnered with an NGO to supply essentials to the Flood affected people. Flipkart, BigBasket, and Zomato also helped Kerala in contributing donations and food to the affected areas. Therefore, we can say that while the mainstream media could not help out much, social media has yet again shown its power.
