Help flood victims of Kerala, India

My home state of Kerala has witnessed the biggest rainfall since 1924, caused flooding and landslide. More than 370+ people have lost their lives in the state. Thousands of people have been put up in relief camps across Kerala, According to the government, 1,000,000+ has been displaced, 20,0000+ houses have been damaged or completely destroyed.

Some of the affected areas are very close to my home district and would like to run fundraiser to help fix homes to
those are financially challenged. I will try to fund as much as possible to local groups(Wayanad & nearby areas) fixing homes and hand over essentials to affected people.  Money left will go to the Chief Minister's Distress Relief Fund (CMDRF).

ORGANIZATIONS I AM WORKING WITH, 

1. SHRADHA - An association registered at CALICUT, KERALA INDIA to help people who are in need. 
    LEADER: MADHUSOODANAN K. 
2. BHODHAPOORNIMA - An organization originally registered to help promote meditation and Yoga, but turned to flood relief activities due to unprecedented damages caused across state
    LEADER: SHABEER KK. 


Both organization leaders are personally known to me (one person is my college friends, another person I know for more than 20 years doing social work), who I trust them to use money properly. 


Update:

      1. Paid Rs. 40,000 in advance (~ 600 USD) to a group to buy tarpaulins & other essentials to affected people in Wayanad. 
      2. Paid Rs. 50,000 (~750 USD) to a group working with the tribal community at Wayanad Dt -
