As peninsular India is staring down the barrel of climate catastrophe as a result of climate change and faulty land use practices, flood is becoming an annual occurrence in Kerala. Around 2400 families are taking refuge in Adimali and Cheruthoni flood relief camps. This project aims to provide flood relief to them in the form of ration kits, clothes, utensils and educational support to 600 school-going children of the camps.
Kerala is witnessing high-intensity floods due to the incessant rains as a result of cyclonic activity. Residents are cut off in parts of the coastal state. The heavy rains triggered landslides and swelled many rivers across the state. Roads are swept away, houses are damaged and trees uprooted. Several villages in hilly areas are cut off. At least 26 people have perished.This project will directly impact 2400 families in Cheruthoni and Adimali who have been shifted to the relief camp.
Voice Trust aims to provide aid to 2400 families in the form of dry rations, new clothes, sanitary and baby napkins, water drums, food, and stay needs for one month and will assist in securing clean water in the relief camps. In a bid to rehabilitate people affected by flooding, we will buy equipment for the workers. School-going children will be provided assistance to continue their studies until the situation is under control.
The project will provide nutrition, health and livelihood support to 2400 families. This will have an overall impact on the lives of over 9000 individuals affected by the climate catastrophe.
