ON THE FRONT LINES KEEPING US SAFE: Mumbai cops are our COVID-WARRIORS and we need to help them.
The Mumbai police are working around the clock to limit the damage that the COVID-19 pandemic can cause. They are distanced from their families and at the risk of constant exposure. They are actually risking their lives to keep Mumbai safe. As of 3 JUNE, 2020 over 1526 of them have tested positive to COVID-19, and 19 of them have succumbed to COVID-19. Let's lend a helping hand and generously support this campaign. Funds will be used to assist the families impacted.
The Mumbai Police has been ensuring strict enforcement of the lockdown in the state. Unfortunately, the police force is extremely vulnerable to COVID-19. The families of those who succumbed to COVID-19 need help. Your generosity matters. All funding has 80G tax benefits. Funds collected will be given to the Mumbai Police Foundation.
FAMILIES LIKE THOSE OF CONSTABLE DEEPAK HATE FROM BANDRA POLICE STATION NEED HELP.

How does crowdfunding work?
Crowdfunding in India is a relatively new concept & is growing very quickly. It’s a concept that allows a large number of funders (like you) to fund an idea or a cause or event by giving small amounts of money online. Fueladream.com is a crowdfunding platform in India that allows for such pooling of funds. You can fund innovations & ideas on FuelADream and be the first to get these products or make them come true. You can also do a good turn by funding charities and causes. When you fund a charity it’s more like a donation & you get small innovative rewards like a shout-out on an FB page or a thank you email from the beneficiaries.
