We’ve seen Chennai come together to #KeepChennaiMoving these past few days and we want to do our bit to help. Today, through the uberAID option in the app, between 9AM – 1PM – you will be able to request a car to come to your door and collect supplies that you wish to donate.

We have partnered with Practo to seamlessly collect your donations and deliver them to Chennai – where help is needed the most. Bangalore, let’s help to #KeepChennaiMoving.


Slide over to the uberAID vehicle option and request a vehicle between 9AM and 1PM, today and an uberAID vehicle will come to your pickup location to accept your contributions for free.

Through our app you will be able to request a vehicle to come to your pick up location, collect your contribution and deposit it safely to the Practo collection points. Practo will then deliver these supplies to Chennai. Thank you for contributing and helping to #KeepChennaiMoving.
