On 25th April 2015 Nepal was hit by an earthquake of 7.8 Richter scale magnitude followed by aftershocks. The earthquake claimed lives of over 6,000 Nepalese all over the country. Not to mention more than 10,000 people were injured. Frightened and scared, this catastrophe has forced many people are forced to live in open grounds. Hence, the need for relief is more than ever.
On such shortcomings, Dokobeats.com, an online movie watching website where people can watch Nepali movie at reasonable prices, has extended its hand to provide relief to the victims. It has managed to donate Rs. 70,000 for victims as a relief. Further, they have worked hard and collect Rs. 2,00,000. With the sum, they have supplied 900 Mineral water bottle and 250 kg of biscuits and noodles each.
Mr. Ashok Khadka, Chairman of Dokobeats, told us
“We are just a start-up and were about to launch our services. We had allocated the Rs. 70,000 for upgrading, promoting and marketing of the webapp and its services. But its more needed there than here. So we donated every penny. We hope our small effort can bring big changes in other people’s life and encourage other IT companies to do as much as they can.”
It’s really good to see small start-up companies working on philanthropic programs during such crisis. The efforts conducted by the start-up companies like Dokabeats send a positive message to the world and we hope other big established companies will do such work in the future.
