#uberjkrelief: Join in the J&K Flood Relief Efforts

Uber is proud to announce a national partnership with #JKFLOODRELIEF, a 24/7 volunteer driven rescue and relief coordination support initiative, to help our brothers and sisters in Jammu and Kashmir in the aftermath of this devastating flood. At its core, Uber is a logistics platform. Using it to make it easier for more people to join in this massive relief effort is our tiny contribution to the people of Jammu & Kashmir.

GET INVOLVED

Uber is connecting you directly to JKFLOODRELIEF across 10 Indian cities in an effort to help raise essential resources. Slide over to the UberJKRelief option and request a vehicle between 10am and 4pm tomorrow and an UberJKRelief vehicle will come to your pickup location to accept your contributions for free.

Delhi
Mumbai
