Story

The second wave of COVID-19 has struck India, making India win at breaking the world record of the highest number of cases in the world in a day- 386,452 

A devastating surge in coronavirus infections has exposed India's dilapidated health infrastructure and a deep shortage of oxygen - a key treatment for seriously ill Covid-19 patients. COVID-19 is a respiratory disease where oxygen therapy is crucial for severe Covid-19 patients- whose oxygen levels in the blood are low.

The funds we receive with the help of your contribution will be donated to the Hemkunt foundation. Hemkunt Foundation has recognised the need of the hour and has started distributing Oxygen Cylinders to COVID-19 patients only for free. They have been involved in relief activities since 2010 and has arranged for 4,200-odd oxygen cylinders in the last three weeks also being published by Forbes India.
Where are the funds going to go?

The process in action will be transparent for each person to view their contribution and you could also visit their social pages for daily updates!

I sit here, watching my friends, relatives and people in our country suffer or witness the suffering of their loved ones. And so do you.
These funds are all for the people who are in desperate need of help, don't forget the roles could be reversed tomorrow. Join me in helping our own nation now.

Jai Hind!

FAQs from Milaap's website:

1. What is Milaap?
Milaap is a free fundraising platform for individuals, charities and organizations to raise money for their needs and causes. Most people use crowdfunding to raise money for themselves, for friends and family, for their favourite charity and for causes of national and/or social importance.
Milaap charges NO platform fees on donations.

2. I made a payment but did not receive a payment receipt
Payment receipts can be downloaded by logging into your Milaap account and then clicking on ‘Dashboard’. All payment receipts can be found on the dashboard. Alternatively, if you have just made a payment by scanning the QR code, by entering the UPI ID or a bank transfer to the account provided on the campaign, please click on this link to download your payment receipt https://milaap.org/payments
Please keep the following details ready while trying to download your payment receipt
  • Mode of Payment - (Paytm, UPI, QR, Bank Transfer)
  • Transaction Reference Number / UTR 
  • Amount
  • Full Name of Donor
  • Email ID of Donor 
  • Phone Number of Donor
3. How do I know if the money I donated reaches the beneficiary?
We’d like to assure you that your donation reaches the beneficiary as we have several parameters in place for that. Firstly, the moment you make a donation, a mail goes out to the campaign organizer, and later you receive periodical emails whenever they post an update.
You may even contact the campaign organizer with the button available on the campaign page for information regarding their campaign. We make sure that funds are transferred to the beneficiary against relevant documents, bills/invoices, and that an update is posted on the campaign page to maintain trust and transparency.

4. Is my donation eligible for tax exemption?
Only donations made to fundraiser campaigns that are legally registered non-profits (NGO) or charity may be considered eligible for donors to claim as a tax deduction. Look for a note  '80G tax benefits for INR donations' below the  'Donate Now' button on the fundraiser. You can also filter for fundraisers with tax benefits on the listing page here
Milaap is not an NGO and is only a custodian of funds hence can not provide tax exemption.

If you have donated to a campaign that provides tax exemption, you can download the tax receipt from your dashboard. To do so, you will have to log in to your Milaap account using your email ID or registered mobile number and then visit your dashboard to download tax receipts.

5. Is Milaap a genuine and trustworthy platform?
Milaap provides a platform for people to raise funds for medical and social causes. Milaap has various measures set in place to ensure the authenticity of fundraiser campaigns. A campaign organizer is notified each time a donation is made on his/her campaign. Donors are notified about the progress of the fundraiser through periodical updates on the beneficiary or on the activity/project for which funds are being raised.
Funds raised are transferred to the beneficiary of the respective fundraiser campaign after a detailed verification process. Verification includes the collection and verification of Identification proofs, bills, etc. Funds are transferred only after the verification is completed.

6. What does Milaap do with the funds if a patient dies?
It is very unfortunate when a patient, for whom funds were being raised, passes away. At Milaap, we follow the following protocol when it comes to withdrawal of funds in the scenario that the patient passes away.
What happens to the funds raised when the patient passes away before the treatment could begin and no funds were transferred yet.
  • Donors are notified first that the patient had expired and no funds have been transferred yet.
  • Upon confirmation from the patient’s family and hospital, that there are no pending bills, donors will be notified of the funds available which they may re-route to another patient or seek a refund.
  • In case of a refund, they’ll be issued the same. The same process holds in case they want their donation to go to the original patient’s family/next-of-kin
