Life is slowly getting back to normal in the flood affected Jammu & Kashmir, but the extent of damage is there for everybody to see. At Saffron Tech, we pledged ourselves to do our bit and assist in rebuilding our nation’s pride, the Kashmir valley. The Saffron family empathizes with the enormous destruction to natural life and human settlements, and we contributed with whatever we possibly could to help our brothers and sisters.

After three weeks of the natural calamity, the damages go up to 1000 crore. Water has slowly receded from the valley, but the plight of homeless residents, broken families and orphaned kids are yet to be fully addressed. Government is doing their part, people are helping with whatever means they can and Saffron Tech is doing its bit as well.

All teams, including design, dev and internet marketing, contributed to the J&K flood victims relief and the Prime Minister’s National Relief Fund (PNMNRF). The Saffron family donated clothes, utensils, health supplements, food items and daily utilities for the flood-affected victims, and has pledged to continue support to the cause.

This is not about us or the victims, it is a simple cause for humanity. At Saffron Tech, we will be doing everything within our means to help people affected due to the natural crisis in J&K.

 

Indian Army to the Rescue

The Kashmir flood claimed over 200 lives, leaving over hundred thousand stranded without food or shelter. The Indian Army came to help and has rescued over 1,30,000 people, while deploying 60,000 troops and carrying out over 120 rescue sorties by helicopters per day, besides 24×7 ground rescue operations.
