Fortis Project Sewa – A Beacon of Hope
In the week gone by, the heavens opened in Uttarakhand and poured relentlessly leading to floods which washed away dreams, hopes, homes and unfortunately lives.
With more than tens of thousands stranded across Uttarakhand, rescue operations are ongoing and will take time to evacuate the stranded. With infrastructure like roads, bridges and establishments ruined, Uttarakhand needs our help
