Hello Dear Friends,
Kerala is suffering from its worst ever natural disaster in a century. 350 people dead till August 19th. An estimated $2 billion in damages. People disappeared. Houses, road and bridges washed away. The whole state is in a situation of red alert.

With more than 300,000 people sheltering in relief camps and thousands of others on high ground in areas cut off by floods, supplying food, medicine and clean water is a growing challenge for authorities.

Power, especially to charge mobile phones is something that is a big issue due to the unavailability of electricity in areas where citizens are stuck in their homes, and where water levels have gone up so high that they have to be rescued.

We, at Inspire, have come up with a quick, low cost solution to the problem. Using 4 AA cells, a battery casing and a USB cable, we have come up with a 'Instant Power-bank' which can be used to charge phones. They will be made shock and water-proof and will be dispatched to flood-hit areas by the Trivandrum district administration.

Each unit costs Rs 60 and contains :

We have dispatched about 250 to the district administration and are targeting at least 1000 more. With one unit costing Rs 60, it would cost a total of at least Rs 60,000 to make those many devices.

These units will prove invaluable to the people who are stuck in the rescue zones, unable to reach the outside world. They may very well be the difference between life and death for people

Kindly help save these people by supporting our efforts and donating, sharing our fundraiser.

We are grateful to you for reading this.
