Last week, the Indian army was attacked by a terrorist group called Jaish-e-Mohammad in the Pulwama district of Jammu & Kashmir. Forty Indian Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) jawans were martyred and several others injured. Several non-government organisations and government organisations have come forward to help the families of the martyred and make donations for the same. If you too want to contribute to it, here are two ways in which you can directly donate to families of the soldiers martyred at the Pulwama terror attack.
The official website set up by the government to help the families, Bharat Ke Veer is actually the brainchild of the Union Ministry of Home Affairs and is supported by actor Akshay Kumar. You can directly donate to an individual braveheart's account or the Bharat Ke Veer corpus. Click here to direct to the website.
Just like they did during the Kerala floods, Paytm has once again added an option on the home page called 'CRPF Bravehearts' that lets you donate whatever you want directly to the families.
Bollywood hasn't held back in this time of need. Many actors in the country have begun making noteworthy donations to the fund. It started with Akshay Kumar donating Rs 5 crores through the Bharat Ke Veer initiative. Amitabh Bachchan also donated Rs 5 lakhs to each family of the martyrs, and the makers of the movie, URI: The Surgical Strike stated that a part of their donations for the families of the URI terror attacks would go the families of the Pulwama martyrs as well. Cricketer Virendra Sehwag also made a commitment to take care of the education of the children of the soldiers. Badshah, the rapper also took to Instagram to share the fact that he donated Rs 3 lakhs to families and encouraged his followers on social media to do the same, and actor and singer Diljit Dosanjh donated Rs 3 lakhs to the families.
Salman Khan's PR team disclosed that he will donate to the Bharat Ke Veer portal via his NGO, Being Human. The team of Total Dhamaal donated Rs 50 Lakh, the lead actor Ajay Devgan announced on Twitter.
