If you haven’t been following the news, Kerala, one of India’s southern states, has been hit by heavy floods, resulting in the death of more than 350 people already. Various governments, celebrities, the public, and companies have come forward to contribute to the relief work in the state. Being a major player in the country, Samsung has also announced measures to help the disaster victims.

“To help the flood affected in the state, Samsung India will contribute INR 1.5 crore to the Kerala Chief Minister’s Distress Relief Fund (CMDRF) alongside donating 10,000 bedding sets to the people of the state”, the company said in a statement. The employees of the company will also be making voluntary contributions to the cause.

“We have donated $300,000 as relief fund towards the cause. We wish speedy recovery for those who are affected,” said DJ Koh, CEO of Samsung’s Mobile Division, according to reports in the media.

Waives off labor charges and discounts part costs

In addition to direct monetary help, Samsung has also deployed customer service vans to help affected people in the state. The company is waiving off labor charges and discounting the cost of parts by 50% for repairing its products damaged in the floods.

“Samsung India has deployed its Customer Service Vans and will set up a relief camp in the state of Kerala, as part of its efforts to reach out to persons affected by the recent floods,” the company said in the same statement.
