Communities around the country need help. Facebook Fundraisers allows people to leverage the full scale and power of the platform, and their passion, to direct resources to initiatives that can protect and save lives,” said Ajit Mohan, the head of Facebook in India.
Facebook said it now maintains partnership with 11 state governments in India for its WhatsApp helpline and 9 state governments for Messenger . The helplines are available in several regional languages including Hindi, Telugu, Marathi, and Odia. ■
