Stand With Kerala - Kerala Flood Relief
Views : 2096
- by Exec Committee on Tuesday, October 30, 2018

Hi,

My home state of Kerala in India, is going thru its worst floods in almost a century.

The rains have been almost non-stop since the onset of Monsoon in late May. There are over 80 dams (35 major ones) and reservoirs in the lush green state known as God’s Own Country and marked by National Geographic, as one of the 50 must see destinations of a lifetime .

Now all these reservoirs are full and overflowing due to the heavy rains and the famed backwaters and wild life sanctuaries are over flooded. Some estimates say that almost 70% of the state is flooded and 13 of the 14 states affected, with lots of people displaced and in relief camps.
