Google Pledges INR 135 Crore In Funding To Help India fight Covid-19

The first tranche will go to GiveIndia, while the second round of funding is for UNICEF, both of which will use the funds in procuring medical supplies while helping the families affected by the Covid-19 pandemic by providing adequate financing.

As the second wave of Covid 19 warps the nation, many companies are coming forward to help. Recently, Google has declared an INR 135 crore new round of funding for India. Not only the main company, but many Google employees have also donated a cumulative of INR 3.7 crore from their end.

The first tranche will go to GiveIndia, while the second round of funding is for UNICEF, both of which will use the funds in procuring medical supplies while helping the families affected by the Covid-19 pandemic by providing adequate financing. As a part of the new round of funding, Google will improve and highlight crucial information in community apps such as Google Search, Google Maps, Google Ads, and YouTube. This implies the content on these platforms will be available in local languages, in addition to the 8 that already exist apart from English, along with even more relevant information. Google has already partnered with the Indian government and is working closely with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation for Covid resources.
