We are thrilled to partner with Robin Hood Army (RHA) to support their ongoing #mission28states🇮🇳 initiative.
Scheduled from 31st July to 15th August, #mission28states🇮🇳 is a national initiative, through which RHA volunteers would address two key concerns: feeding the hungry by serving 5 million meals, and vaccinating 150,000 underprivileged citizens. Besides Uber, Google and WhatsApp are also supporting this initiative.
As the national mobility partner, Uber is providing the wheels to this mission with thousands of free rides for the RHA volunteers to mobilize people to vaccination centers and help deliver meals.
Anyone can join #mission28states🇮🇳 by sending a WhatsApp message to +91 89719 66164.
Earlier in March, we partnered with the Robin Hood Army (RHA), a volunteer-based, zero funds organisation, to support its #SeniorPatrol programme for vaccinating vulnerable senior citizens in India with free rides worth INR 50 Lacs.
In addition to supporting the vaccination drive, these free rides have been boosting earning opportunities for Drivers on our platform during these challenging times.
Neel Ghose, Founder, Robin Hood Army, said, “We built and ran the SeniorPatrol programme during the extended lockdown in India to serve senior citizens across 100+ cities in the country with urgent needs such as groceries and medicines. We are happy that we have been given another opportunity to support these senior citizens for the vaccination drive and our extended partnership with Uber will further help us remove barriers to access vaccination and play a critical role in serving the communities where we operate”.
Uber and RHA have come together to deploy these free rides across the following Indian cities:
|Delhi NCR||Includes Delhi, NOIDA, Gurugram & Ghaziabad|
|Rajasthan||Jaipur, Udaipur, Jodhpur, Kota, Ajmer|
|Uttar Pradesh||Lucknow, Kanpur, Varanasi, Prayagraj, Agra, Gorakhpur, Mathura|

Since the outbreak of the pandemic, we have worked relentlessly towards helping move what matters and providing support by offering free rides to local authorities, civil society organizations and State Governments, including the Robin Hood Army. These free rides were a part of the larger global commitment made by Uber to donate 10 million free rides and food deliveries to healthcare workers, seniors, and people in need, last year.
