Kerala Disaster Relief Fund

Thousands have been affected by the devastating floods in Kerala, India. We, Kerala Samajam of Greater New York, Inc. is raising funds to aid those suffering in its wake.

The state has seen the worst flooding in the living memory, due to heavy rains continuing since July. For the first time in the history of Kerala, all the gates of 37 reservoirs had to be opened to release excess water, which caused widespread inundation of rural as well as urban areas. Kerala’s undulated topography paved ways for several landslides and flash flooding in many places washing away and destroying many habitations. Hundreds of people have reportedly died and the toll is going up everyday. The extent of damage and loss can’t be ascertained yet as road communications to many areas are cut off and isolated. However, total loss, as of now, is expected to be over $1 billion.

 Thousands of relief camps have been opened catering to the needs of over 250,000 displaced people. The country’s Air, Navy and Army forces are engaged to upscale the rescue operations. The coastal areas habitations are also facing serious danger due to intrusion of seawater and overflowing of rivers.
