Challenge

Kerala is a place with lot of water ways. It is known as God's Own Country. The heavy rains from the beginning of August inundated the rivers and canals and water levels went above the bridges by submerging the houses. Human loss is estimated above 354 persons so far. Many are missing. Houses have been destructed. Family belongings including school going Children education materials have been washed away. Around 2400 families of Cheruthoni and Adimali regions are in refugee camps.

Solution

A new life will begin for over 2400 families of Cheruthoni and Adimali regions with help from friends all over the world through Global Giving for supply of new clothes, sanitary and baby napkins, water drums, food and stay needs for one month, tools for restarting jobs and educational supports for school going Children.
