What started as an internal initiative to help the victims of the Chennai floods soon snowballed into a global relief operation with its head quarters at the Brave New World office. The idea to collect and distribute power banks was born from the realisation that the main problem was the lack of communication owing to the loss of electricity. The flood victims were unable to charge their phones and couldn't get in touch with their families and the relief workers on-ground.
Our platform allowed Indians from across the world to reach out and help those in need. Help poured in not just from those who had families in the affected areas, but from those who wanted to help make a difference. All they had to do was order supplies online and have it delivered to our office, and we took care of the rest.
