Friends as you all know Kerala has been reeling under unprecedented rainfall causing massive destruction to lives, livelihoods and homes. So far this monsoon, Kerala has received an excess of 30% rainfall, not seen since 1924. The gates of 35 out of the 39 dams have been opened to release excess water adding to the woes. The official death toll is at 100 people so far, with many trapped in low lying areas and estimates of people displaced vary from 50,000 to 150,000. The state has declared Red Alert in 11 of the 14 districts.
People in Kerala are fighting against tremendous adversities. Aidindia from Chennai has already taken relief to Wayanad district. We are working with our partners to do immediate relief work.
Please donate generously and stand with the people of Kerala in their hour of need.
