While full recovery from the disaster will definitely take a few years, most people need immediate help to meet their very basic daily needs, until they can go back to their homes and start rebuilding. At this time, the Columbus Malayalees Group, Indiana have launched a fundraising campaign to support with the emergency relief. If you are able to, we humbly request you to contribute to help the people in Kerala. We will make sure that the contributions you make goes to Chief Minister's Distress Relief Fund. Even a small contribution will make a huge difference!

Note:  We are Columbus Malayalee Community residing in the United States of America, who have roots and families tied to the state of Kerala, India. The money collected through this campaign will be used to assist the people affected by the flood situation in Kerala. All the contributions you make will be transferred to Chief Minister's Distress Relief Fund - CMDRF (https://donation.cmdrf.kerala.gov.in/) who in turn will spend the money to rebuild the infrastructure of Kerala state impacted by the floods. 

Thank you for your support and prayers.
