Delhi witnessed one of the worst riots this country has ever faced over the past three days. Many families were torn apart, their houses burnt down, lives lost and dreams shattered. Even Schools were not spared & burnt down reminding the capital city the horrors of what happened with Hindus of Kashmir in 1990.
Indians all across the globe stood up for their fellow Indians, by coming forward to help the riot affected families on a crowdfunding platform called CrowdKash. The riots claimed over 42 lives in the capital city and Northeast Delhi was the worst affected area. Kapil Mishra and his team of on ground activists have come forward to help out all the Hindu families get back on their feet to overcome this inhumane trauma set on them by the Anti-Hindu rioters.
A crowdfunding campaign worth Rs 50 Lacs was initiated on India’s most trusted crowdfunding platform, CrowdKash. In less than 48 hours, the crowdfunding campaign touched over Rs 45 Lacs through contributions by 2803 individuals.
The goal of the campaign as mentioned on the website reads: “We currently have an on-ground team that is looking for such families who’s lives have been shattered. The goal of this campaign is to identify families who are massively impacted due to the riots and help them with monetary assistance. We believe that this would act as a short term relief for these underprivileged Hindu families who have been impacted by the riots. We may extend the goal amount if we find more such families that deserve our help and assistance. We will extend the fundraiser amount as we progress and ascertain the losses of lives and properties of these families. The list is growing. The funds will be transferred to the impacted family accounts directly. Regular updates will be provided and will be managed with full transparency.”
Some silver lining one can observe from the cycle of events is that now citizens no longer complain and lament about the fact that there’s no one to help the victims; rather pro-actively take up initiatives that will create a major impact on the lives of the underprivileged citizens of the country.
Since the fund was Hindu specific, a section of people tried to derail the fund collection by launching a DDoS attack on the site followed by threats from middle east to close the fundraising. The Activists remained unfazed and were successful to thwart all attempts to sabotage the humanitarian efforts.
