Now, a crowdfunding initiative to end farm distress

Hyderabad, April 20: Farmers in Maharashtra, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu continue to end their lives but the response from governments both at the Central and State levels has not been proactive.

Now, a group of IT professionals and an NGO are doing their bit to alleviate the situation and equip farmers better against hostile conditions.

They have decided to raise funds on a crowdfunding basis to help farmers. Against a target of ₹1 crore, the initiative has so far raised about ₹60 lakh.
