We will run this till August 31st. We will be closing any fundraising after that and process the transfer of funds.
I/We will personally make sure that 100% of it gets to State's Disaster Relief Fund. We will save proof of transfer of this fund to government authorities.
As of now, we have a team of 5 running the campaign let me know if you or your team would like to actively join this campaign and I will add your names here. Let's join as one country and support the fellow brothers and sisters.
Transfer of funds.
We will directly transfer all proceedings from this campaign to the Kerala Government Distress Relief Fund.
Clarity of Usage of funds?
Total estimated damage as of yesterday (08/14) was Rs.8000 Crores which is around $1.1Billion US dollars. This will only rise in the coming days since the rain is still going on without a break. But who would benefit? - Unfortunately, we won’t get that level granularity for the funds we send.
I still got questions, is there someone I can talk to?
I, Sanal Panicker will be reachable, you can click on the mail campaign organizer and reach out over email. We can even talk over the phone - let me know.
