Almost every brand has come forward in their own way to support the people affected by the calamity - and not just Toyota.

Honda donated 3 crores, Bajaj Auto donated 2 crores, TVS and Hyundai 1 crore, Mercedes 30 lakhs. Tata Motors, BMW, Volkswagen and even Nissan have announced extended support and services.

I may sound very skeptical and pessimist but the brand's have donated as per their sales and popularity. Mercedes should have done a lot more than that.
Donating money is good but what about people who must have cars which have gone completely broken because of such a natural disaster?
We need some sincere car brands who are here not just to make profits but also understand sentiments of a car owner. I feel for all those who must have had their cars broken down. Even a small scratch on it makes me feel bad and try everything to bring it back to its pristine condition. I know the pain they must be feeling right now.
Hopefully not just Toyota but every brand comes up with some strategy to make it back to what it was.

The amount donated is (and this is true in case of all such donations, by all companies generally) proportional to the no of employees in the organisation.
Basically, organisations just "voluntarily" deduct one day salary of all their employees and then donate it on company's name as part of their CSR activity.

Meanwhile, UAE denies to have announced Rs.700 crore aid for Kerala. The news of this aid was doing rounds since a while.

this is not CSR, please read about it... That's just Donation (Benevolence) that too voluntary for the employees. The organisation will add up money from own coffee & donate. Can you please confirm me a case where social service organisation does it & pass it as it's own CSR obligation (that's not required in first place)

Plus many people expecting one or other manufacturer to donate more is utterly stupid. How much one has paid towards such noble causes has no relation with their deep pockets.
There are heroes (& females too) who have just given up all savings for helping fellows in hardships.

Sorry but distributed with the current trend in Social Media to earn some brownie points by posting screen shot of amount donated & people asking one or others about his/ her contribution.

BTW I have worked as party of top management in CSR organisation in past.

The news was announced by Kerala CM in this twitter post -

Quote:
CM Pinarayi Vijayan informed that the United Arab Emirates will provide Kerala an assistance of ₹700 Crore. Kerala has a special relationship with UAE, which is a home away from home for Malayalees. We express our gratitude to UAE for their support. #KeralaFloodRelief
Even this tweet from our PM confirms that an offer was made -
Quote:
A big thanks to Sheikh Mohammad for his gracious offer to support people of Kerala during this difficult time. His concern reflects the special ties between governments and people of India and UAE.
However, India is not accepting foreign relief funds for Kerala or Kodagu relief. This was also tweeted by the Thailand embassy -
Quote:
Informally informed with regret that GOI is not accepting overseas donations for Kerala flood relief. Our hearts are with you the people of Bharat.

Default TVS Free Service Camp: Flood Affected Vehicles in Kerala

Hey Everyone,

In the aftermath of the recent floods that have been raising havoc in Kerala, TVS offers a sigh of relief by setting up a Free Service Camp for its customers affected by the floods.

A commendable initiative if you ask me, attaching a screen capture of SMS received.

Bajaj have also come up with similar initiative in Kerala.

Tata Motors also came up extending support to Tata cars affected in Kerala floods. Tata Motors has decided to offer free of cost towing assistance to all rain affected Tata Motors Cars and UVs.

Probably used a Jack and lifted one wheel at a time and placed one brick at a time. After a few bricks; the Jack also would have been placed on a some bricks to get the required height.
