assisting in the field. Fundraising is at the heart of it, the method of raising resources for a specific
purpose and in our case for support through donations from the public for the relief of those
affected in emergenciessituations on the planet. An extensive analysis is carried out in a theoretical
context regarding the humanitarian sector, the emergencies situation of a disaster, as well as
modern tactics of communication strategy using the Internet. The main pillars of the analysis of
the present research are the ways of communication and presentation of the events by the above
Non-Governmental Organizations, the procedures and means of attracting the public, the

COVID-19 pandemic that hit India very hard with thousands of deaths in its wake, as well as the
