Double Roti, Zomato and Old Baking Company Are Providing Relief To Those Affected By The Chennai Floods

Rains are still ravaging Chennai – so much so that the Army and Navy has been called into the metropolis to help rescue operations. Amidst the destruction, the floods have brought out thousands of Good Samaritans across the city. Some companies, for instance are opening their doors the stranded while others are providing food to those in need. Here are three such efforts:

Double Roti
