KINGSTOWN, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, July 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- As the communities around the world are faced with one of the most challenging crises brought by the COVID-19 pandemic, some businesses focused on providing immediate and direct help for the most vulnerable. OctaFX, an online Forex broker, joined forces with charity organizations and individual activists in order to help India fight COVID-19.
In April, OctaFX initiated a charity campaign called "Trade from home, help battle COVID-19." The idea was to donate 0.2 USD from each lot traded. The results were incredible. In one month, from 23 April to 22 May, OctaFX's overall donation amount reached 82,332.90 USD. The raised money was distributed among various charity organizations across Asia. In India, a portion of the donation was transferred to the YouWeCan Foundation established by Yuvraj Singh.
OctaFX also asked Mohit Chhikara, a famous blogger, to deliver packages of food, masks, and other essential goods to the families in need. Mohit Chhikara was eager to help and accepted the 5 lakh rupees donation from OctaFX. He was able to meet with 800 struggling families and distribute a month's worth of food, sanitizers, and masks. Mohit Chhikara went to the Manthan football ground, gaushala in Harewali, and a school in Vikaspuri. The blogger posted a video of this memorable trip on his YouTube channel.
This successful collaboration is an excellent example of how companies can combine efforts with bloggers in times of need and provide direct help and support for the most vulnerable. The more businesses follow this example, the more people can get aid and essential goods they need in this challenging time.
