The UCDF is transferring small grants into the accounts of driver partners every day to help them meet their immediate needs, Uber said.
Uber said it aims to raise an additional Rs 25 crore through contributions from its employees, riders, CSR funds and citizens through a partnership with Milaap, a leading crowdfunding organization, to look after the welfare and wellbeing of driver partners on its platform. Uber employees have already contributed Rs 17 lakh to the fund. UberMedic, UberEssential and Uber’s delivery service driver partners are also eligible for grants under this initiative, it said.
