In January 2017, Kashmir was hit by two avalanches that resulted in the deaths of at least 15 Army personnel in Sonmarg and Gurez. A number of these martyrs were the sole breadwinners of their families. However, after their death, the families they’ve left behind are in need of monetary support.
With BitGiving’s fundraising platform, you get to choose how you want to help these families. You can donate to individual families, and/or start a fundraiser for them. Or you can donate to the Battle Fund here.
Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar made an emotional appeal for the same.
Post the Uri attacks in September 2016, social media was full of people offering help to families of the martyrs. In a unanimous decision by the government and the Army, an Army Welfare Fund Battle Casualties was started.
