It always stands out when a very large and successful company still takes time and resources to give back to communities in need. Qnet, a leading e-commerce company, has been donating time and money to help those in less fortunate situations. Most recently, Qnet made a public announcement of their donation of Rs. 75 Lakhs to help the victims of the Chennai flood. This announcement was made at IIFA Utsavam, an awards ceremony to recognize film talent from Southern India. It is the first festival to do just that. The donation is going directly to the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister’s Relief Fund, which will work directly with the relief victims.
Chennai is a city located in Southern India on the west coast facing the Indiana Ocean. They have been experiencing the greatest rainfall in 100 years and have suffered awful and damaging flooding as a result. Countless residents have been forced out of their homes and resources have become scarce. This donation is not the first time that Qnet has aided with the flood. In fact very recently, Qnet partnered with Lions Dist. 317 F Service Foundation to bring 200 families relief kits filled with household essentials such as cooking ware, sheets and more.
Qnet’s donations and outreach efforts are often in association with other organizations. This is to ensure the highest quality care and most effective help. Qnet’s efforts are completed through their outreach program which is known as QNET- WE CARE. QNET- WE CARE is part of their CSR initiative. CSR stands for Corporate Social Responsibility and refers to the role and responsibility corporations have in taking care of the social needs. This is exactly what QNET- WE CARE has been accomplishing through their efforts. They protect the rights and well being of those people who are less fortunate and in difficult situations. As mentioned before, it is always amazing to see a company with such large success to give back to people in need.
