KEATS – CORONA RELIEF FUND
To provide succour, strength and support to the vulnerable sections of the society during the lockdown crisis, KEATS has stepped in do it’s best. To an appeal, the Indian diaspora in the US and other members of KEATS fraternity contributed ₹10.00 lakhs in no time. A matching amount has been allocated from the reserve funds. Support has been provided to orphanages, migrant labour and home guards. We wish to build momentum and scale up the relief operations. Request like-minded philanthropists to lend support to the cause. A small amount can also make a big difference.
Every rupee will be spent judiciously to reach the needy. Donations are exempt u/s 80G of IT act.
