Rotary Club of Bombay Bay View joins hands with 'Ketto' to raise funds

MUMBAI: Ketto – Asia’s largest visited and most trusted crowdfunding platform and Rotary Club of Bombay Bay View – World renowned for its social work initiatives together are raising funds for families of Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel martyred in the suicide attack in Pulwama, Kashmir. The campaign is titled as, “Lets Salute and Support 40 CRPF Brave heart’s Families of Pulwama Terror Attack”

All funds raised from this campaign will be donated to the Families of CRPF personnel martyred in the suicide attack in Pulwama, Kashmir. The raised funds will go to the CRPF via BharatkeVeer Corpus Fund and Ketto has waived off its fee for this campaign. Ketto and Rotary Club both are requesting all citizens and the Good Samaritans to join this battle and gather pledges or contribute for this cause.

In a first major militant attack in 3 years, a massive explosion targeted a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) convoy on Thursday afternoon, killing several CRPF Personnel and wounding several others. Jaish-e-Mohammad has claimed responsibility for the attack and identified the bomber as a local militant. Sources say that the attack was likely carried out by a suicide bomber, who rammed an explosive-laden car into the CRPF bus.

Police state that the terrorist was named Adil Ahmad from Kakapora in Pulwama who joined the JeM in 2018. Over 20 people were injured in the terror attack, which reduced the bus to a mangled heap of iron. CRPF Inspector General in Kashmir Valley Zulfiqar Hasan described it as a “vehicle bound attack” and said Jammu & Kashmir Police has taken up the further investigation.

Kunal Kapoor, Actor and co-founder of Ketto said, “My heartfelt appeal to people, to come forward & support @ketto for their campaign to rehabilitate the families of @crpfindia martyrs. India lets stand up for those who gave their lives for our safety. Jai Hind”

Varun Sheth, CEO and co-founder of Ketto said, “Our deepest condolences to all the CRPF martyrs who lost their lives in the terror attack. Although no amount of money can bring back our Bravehearts, in this tragic moment we wish to stand by their families and wish to offer our crowdfunding platform to raise money their families. We will waive off all fees attached to this cause. We further wish to state that we are ready to share our technology and the entire team with the CRPF if they require any help.”

Anand Mane, Past President – Rotary Club of Bombay Bay View said, “I strongly condemn the attack on CPRF personals. May their families get the strength to bear this loss and as their families are left with little means of financial support we at Rotary are collaborating with Ketto to raise funds so that it will help sustain them.”
