The Global humanitarian organisation Go Dharmic (GD) has partnered with Uber India. Uber is facilitating much needed mobility and logistical support to voluntary efforts across India aiding throughout the Covid crisis. Over 1000 vital trips have been completed across multiple Indian cities helping people with critical needs. People in need of the service have been communicating via the Go Dharmic app and phone lines to receive immediate assistance and delivery of supplies to hospitals, hospices, family members and friends across the country.
The service is operational in the following cities: Kolkata, Lucknow, Mumbai, Delhi & Ahmedabad and more cities are being added daily. This vital mobility support provides Covid-related assistance and Go Dharmic has been extending this support to many other charitable partner organisations.

We remain committed to supporting our communities by offering free rides to #MoveWhatMatters, including life-saving oxygen cylinders, concentrators and medical supplies for strengthening our healthcare system and building hope during India’s hour of need!”

They have 10 street food distributions across the UK. Internationally, the charity has served up over 4 million meals worth of food including many disaster relief efforts.
