Google announced on Thursday that it would contribute $50000 to Pakistani flood relief efforts.
Vice President of Google Southeast Asia Stephanie Davis announced on LinkedIn that the tech giant would contribute the sum—roughly 110 million rupees—to the Centre for Disaster Philanthropy through Google.org.
She continued by saying that the Center for Disaster Philanthropy would in turn give sub-grants to neighborhood organizations that are actively involved in crisis response and recovery.
“Our thoughts are with everyone who has been harmed by the severe flooding in Pakistan. We have also seen #Pakistanis and communities banding together to aid one another, even though they were terrified of having their homes washed away and essential agriculture ruined. We are moved by their courage and wish to support them, Davis said in the post.
She continued by saying that the business would continue to look for ways to use its resources and tools to aid Pakistan.
