The devastating floods in Kerala, the southern state in India, during this monsoon has resulted in more than 400 lives lost, more than 20,000 homes destroyed with over 1.5 million people displaced and in camps waiting for the water to subside. Rescue operations are still underway. The people of Kerala have lost their families, homes, livelihood and much more. This has been the worst floods in the state in over a century. Please donate to help this community reeling from this devastating natural disaster, to aid the rescue and relief operations underway now and then to help rebuild the roads, dams, bridges, schools and buildings destroyed in the floods.

Care & Share Inc

http://careandshare.com/keralafloods2018.html This is an organization which is collecting money to contribute towards Kerala Chief Ministers Distress Relief Funds (CMDRF). This is a well managed fund exclusively setup for the Disaster Relief and is under audit. There is assurance that this fund will be used for the needy in Kerala. I have personally verified through the leadership team driving the volunteer activities about the usage of CMDRF. All large corporations are fund raisers are donating directly into this fund. It will first be used for immediate relief activities like food, drinking water, clothes, medicines , cleaning kits etc. to flood-affected communities and then after the first few weeks to provide continued assistance and long-term rehabilitation; restore infrastructure like roads, schools, dams etc. and rebuild lives along with way.

Goonj

For the last two decades, Goonj has been deeply involved in disaster-related work across the country. It has an existing network of communities and partners that are active throughout the year in areas of rural development. At the time of disaster, this network is intensified as a powerful tool for change. https://goonj.org/ Goonj's Team headed by founder Anshu Gupta is in the field assessing the situation and is setting up relief operations the way it has done in the last twenty years. First, Goonj will address the basic urgent needs of the flood-affected communities. Later in the rehabilitation process, through the initiative "Cloth For Work" material kits will motivate and trigger local communities to action and restore infrastructure like roads, schools, dams etc. and rebuild lives along with way. The affected communities are not mere passive recipients but collectively work with us as an equal stakeholder - be it in assessing the critical situation or in the decision-making.
