It’s been more than a few months since the coronavirus outbreak started in China, and people are still scared to step out of their homes. The situation seems to be getting a little better by each passing day, but there’s a lot to recover from.
As we collectively do our best to fight the deadly COVID-19 virus, tons of donations have started pouring in from wealthy individuals across the globe. In India, a lot of celebrities have come forward to donate and help our nation fight through this pandemic. Now, Google CEO Sundar Pichai has also come forward to extend a helping hand.
The Google chief has donated Rs 5 Crore to ‘Give India’, thereby matching Google’s earlier donation to the non-profit organization to help fight the pandemic. ‘Give India’, for those of you who don’t know, is one of the non-profit organisations that are working hard to gather all the help we need.
We believe that Sundar Pichai’s generous donation will definitely help them do their best and support those who are in need. Sundar Pichai’s contribution will go towards the daily wage workers who are believed to be the ones that are most affected during this pandemic in India. Give India confirmed the same in a tweet.
It’s worth pointing out that Sundar Pichai’s donation is an addition to the existing amount donated by Google India. On top of that, Google had announced an over $800 million commitment towards efforts to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic. So we’re essentially seeing a lot of help from Google, which is great.
In addition to Google, a lot of other tech companies have also stepped forward to help the world. Apple is also doing its part, and so are other companies like Tata, Paytm and more.
