    This fundraiser will benefit

    Mar Thoma Yuvajana Sakhyam

    from Pathanamthitta, Kerala

This year August 2018 saw the worst floods in a century submerging Kerala,a peaceful harmonious State located at the southern tip of India. 12 out of 14 districts of Kerala are completely devastated leading to a larger humanitarian crisis. 

Pathanamthitta district is one among the worst affected. Our flood survivors have lost their loved ones, home, businesses, schools, hospitals  etc and are struggling to rebuild their lives from scratch.

As the initial rehabilitation efforts have started and water is receding,  we are now getting several distress calls from flood damaged schools within our district for sponsoring school kits for children. We need 5000 school kits with each kit costing INR 750.

Let us brighten up the smile on each child's face as they are the future of India. In the aftermath of floods, it is our duty to enable our children to adjust back to a school life with the necessary infra and school kit. Come support this cause and together let us REBUILD LIVES REBUILD KERALA.
