Paytm feeds 75,000 daily wage workers in 5 cities everyday
India’s leading digital payments & financial services platform Paytm has partnered with an NGO KVN Foundation to provide daily meals to thousands of daily wagers and migrant labourers. As part of efforts to feed the needy, Paytm has provided meals to 75,000 daily wage workers across 5 cities and plans to serve 30 lakh needy people in the current crisis.
The company has opened donations through its app for people to contribute and enable Paytm in feeding stranded labourers and daily wagers in their city.
Together with KVN, they are already serving 75,000 meals per day across Mumbai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Chennai, and Noida. Going forward, Paytm will tie up with various state NGOs to take this initiative across the country.
The people willing to support the campaign can log on to their Paytm App and donate by clicking on the ‘Feed My City’ tab. Donations for this noble cause can also be made to the city of one's choice on the Paytm app.
Over the last few weeks, Paytm has launched several initiatives to fight the spread of the Coronavirus. The company is aiming to contribute Rs. 500 Crores to PM CARES Fund, and has already collected over Rs. 80 crores within the first week. Also, the company is distributing personal hygiene products, such as hand wash and sanitizers to people who do not have the means to buy it.
