Chennai Flood Rehabilitation

Make it Count!

Dear All,

As you may have heard, southern India experienced unprecedented rains in the last week of November,2015. Chennai has been one of the worst affected with massive flooding resulting in a humanitarian crisis.  More than 300 people have died with about 1.8 million displaced from their homes and needing rescue. Preliminary estimates of the economic loss of the floods are at more than USD 15 billion.

We are calling out to all generous hearts for donations to help rehabilitate the affected. To this regard, we are working with BHUMI , a leading non-profit volunteer organization. Out of the plethora of social causes available, BHUMI focusses on orphanages and old age homes.

We are impressed with the clarity, focus and organized manner in which BHUMI goes about its work . For the rehabilitation efforts as well, BHUMI has a well defined strategy and action plan   focussing on short term, medium term and long term tasks. 

Donations will directly reach BHUMI USA which are tax-deductible (501 (c)3), from where it will be transfered internally to BHUMI India towards the Chennai flood relief and rehabilitation efforts.  
Once you make a donation, you will receive an email receipt which you can use for tax exemption.
BHUMI USA is a certified non-profit approved by GoFundMe and listed for the matching donation program by many corporate organizations in the US.

If you have already donated through another organization, sincere thanks for your generosity!

Warm regards,
Kavitha & Uthra


P.S.
We are in contact with Dr. Prahlathan  (M.D Opthamology),who is the co-founder of BHUMI.  We were touched by his simplicity and his zeal for selfless service.  You can read more about him and BHUMI at the links below.
