New Delhi: Amazon Pay announced the launch of UmmeedKeChehre – a digital-led campaign to salute the unseen and unsung heroes of the ongoing pandemic who continue to work tirelessly to help and support others.

The campaign unfolds with a digital film that captures the extraordinary efforts and commitment of individuals and groups, including the frontline staff, lab technicians and lesser-known heroes like drivers, watchmen and many more who are selflessly doing their best for the society and people.

Speaking about the campaign, Amazon Pay India, CEO, Mahendra Nerurkar said, “UmmeedKeChehre, is our digital campaign to thank lakhs of Covid heroes for their commitment and aims to spread a strong message of positivity and hope during these tough times. It salutes the spirit of hope that is being exemplified by these ordinary folks through their extraordinary acts of serving and caring for people and communities.”

As part of the campaign, people can pay gratitude towards Covid heroes by making donations through the partner NGOs’ Milap, Give India, Akshay Patra, Help Age, Humanity for Habitat, or also have an option to or share an Amazon Pay digital gift card as a gesture with their Covid-19 heroes. The campaign runs across multiple media channels to connect and encourage people to join the movement and share a ‘Thank you note’ for their Covid Hero on their own social media channels using #PayYourRespect.

The company said it is also enabling procurement, airlifting, local transportation and seamless delivery of critical medical equipment to hospitals and communities where it’s needed the most. “We have scaled up relief efforts for our employees and their families too, including access to medical infrastructure and other supplies, quarantine facilities, financial support, and more. Further, we have committed to provide vaccination support for our employees, sellers, partners and their dependents; and our on-premises vaccination camps are functional for employees and associates across multiple cities,” said the company.
