Donate for Kerala Flood Victims - Fundraiser - Relief & Rehabilitation

Kerala has been struggling with floods for past 10 days, leaving thousands of people at the relief camps who needs food, clothing and other essential supplies. I'm raising fund to help Kerala flood victims, we are sending supplies to relief centers setup at Wayanad, as more people have moved to relief camps there is a need for essential supplies. After the relief work, we will focus on the rehabilitation efforts. Please donate whatever you can, even a small amount would make a difference.




Thanks to all the good hearts for the quick contribution, on Aug-17 at 4pm, we supplied 125 kg rice, 5000 biscuits, 50 bedsheets, 50 towels, 50 toothbrush and 500 sanitary pads through the BMF to Wayanad relief camps.







All the essential items we supplied were loaded along with other contributions to 2 trucks and sent on Aug-17th late evening around 8pm by BMF (Bangalore Malayali Friends) and sent to Wayanad relief camps






For the 1st phase we spent around Rs.20,000 to buy the items 125 kg rice, 5000 biscuits, 50 bedsheets, 50 towels, 50 toothbrush and 500 sanitary pads. Please find the bill attached below
