Kerala Flood Disaster Relief 2018

In mid of August 2018 massive and devastating flooding occurred due to torrential monsoon rain in the southern Indian State of Kerala, costing an estimated $3 billion in damages. 

Over 350,000 people had to abandon their homes and are being placed in 3,026 relief camps, and approximately 800,000 people are displaced.

At least 357 people have died in slightly over a week, and tens of thousands of homes are destroyed.

Immeasurable damage has been caused to not only the state of 
Kerala, but to the people as well. 

Limited transportation--due to the extended closure of Kerala’s main airport, Cochin Airport, and the flooding of roads and railroad tracks--created complications for rescue efforts.

Please donate! The amount does not matter, any contribution is some contribution, and no matter how little, the money you donate will help them to get back to their normal life.

This flooding has been the worst flood in Kerala for nearly a century.

There were two victims whom I know quite well; both being the care taker for my mother in Kerala. They were severely affected by this severe weather. Both lost their entire home to the flood, along. with all of their belongings.The victims are Mathai V.J. and Muraleedharan B. These two need all the help they can get.

We are a family from New Jersey, and we have many family members and friends who are currently struggling to deal with the aftermath of the floods. This money will be used to aid in the rebuilding of their homes which were destructed due to the flooding and mudslides.The money will be eventually distributed to each of the individuals. Copy of the payment will be posted on this site once it is being issued to them.

Again, please consider donating; no matter the amount, every donation will help to rebuild Kerala after the destruction of the cataclysmic flooding.

We want to extend a great thanks to all of the caring and kind-hearted people who choose to donate. It means a lot to us and to the people of Kerala!

Please spread the word to your family and friends, and on social media.
