One week after announcing a $50,000 donation to PM CARES to combat the ongoing coronavirus pandemic in India, Pat Cummins clarifies that he ended up donating that money to UNICEF instead.
Terrific work @CricketAus
FYI I ended up allocating my donation to UNICEF Australia's India COVID-19 Crisis Appeal.

Thank you Pat. You're a great guy. Just that don't put the money in PM Cares. Repeated RTIs have led to the open announcement that it's not accountable to anyone and any funds allocation won't be disclosed. Pls donate to any of the other numerous charities that are accountable.

Why would you pay to pmcares? He is already not sharing that money with people. It is a private fund with no auditing

Thank you Pat, but you just wasted your money by donating to PM Care fund…He doesn't care at all…It would be great if you had donated this amount to some NGOs.

Don't contribute to PM care fund because he is using that for his election campaign and for buying MLAs of opposition parties and he is the one who is responsible for this mess.

Thanks Pat. U r terrific bowler & human being. Ur gesture speaks volume about you. However, please don't donate the money to PM Cares. Multiple RTI's, court cases have shown PM Cares is not transparent & is a private entity. Rather donate to hospitals & those working on ground.
