In the face of a massive natural calamity, Samsung reached out to the Kerala flood victims as they face one of the worst deluges of the century. The South Korean electronics giant company donated $300,000 (around 2 crores) as an aid for relief and rescue operations in Kerala which has been battered by torrential rains and flood.
“We have donated $300,000 as relief fund towards the cause. We wish a speedy recovery for those who are affected,” said DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT and Mobile Communications Division, Samsung Electronics.
About 1 million people are homeless and displaced are forced to live in over 3000 relief camps. The death toll is also on the rise. It is one of the most devastating floods that have wracked the country since 1924. At a time like this, Samsung stood by the state & extended its heartfelt support.
