Humans of Bombay & Hemkunt Foundation raise over INR 1.6 Crore
India’s largest online storytelling platform, Humans of Bombay, joined hands with Gurugram based NGO Hemkunt Foundation, to start a fundraising campaign for Covid-19 Relief in the country. With the help of these funds, Hemkunt Foundation is committed to providing O2 Cylinders, free of cost, across the country. The cylinders are being distributed to those in need by conducting drives and hospital tie-ups.
Through the #HelpIndiaBreathe fundraising campaign, the Humans of Bombay community has been able to raise over INR 1.6 Crore in less than 6 days. The partnership’s goal is to crowdfund INR 3 Crore in the next one week.

Speaking about the fundraiser, Ms. Karishma Mehta, Founder & CEO - Humans of Bombay said, “At Humans of Bombay, we have always promoted a community-first approach. Our nation is fighting an unprecedented battle against COVID-19, and so it is imperative now more than ever to come together in solidarity. The extraordinary generosity shown to our Fundraiser will bolster Hemkunt Foundation’s tremendous efforts in providing free Oxygen across India. While we have been extensively sharing the Fundraiser with our own community of 2.7 Million+ people via our socials, we urge more and more people to come forward and donate to the cause. Every bit will go a long way in saving lives. We are confident that together we will – India will overcome.”

We believe that the O2 For You by Hemkunt Foundation project is a worthy cause that will do a great deal of good for many people. This is our time to save lives, it really is now or never. We are working round the clock and will continue to do so until we win the battle over coronavirus.”
