Chennai Rains Relief Fund (Nanmai)

Heavy rains have battered many parts of Tamil Nadu and Pondicherry, including worst affected cities like Chennai and Cuddalore. Flood water has drowned many homes in multiples areas in the cities and villages. Lots and lots of people have been affected by these floods and we are witnessing plenty of stories of selfless acts by many heroes rising up to the occasion helping each other get through this disaster.

My name is Jude Prakash currently in the USA, originally from Chennai, India. I'm trying to raise money to help those good souls who are actually doing the ground work in Chennai and Cuddalore. The funds raised will be given to aid the relief work across all rain affected locations in Tamil Nadu.

Who will receive the funds?
www.nanmai.org  will be receiving the funds and will be distributing relief packages/food to the affected in chennai.
