Dear Friends,

In the past two weeks my home state of Tamil Nadu has been beaten down on by torrential rains and this has resulted in some of the worst flooding they have seen in almost a decade. My home city, Chennai is reeling under this disaster and is partially submerged in many areas where my family and friends live. They say they haven't had rains and floods like this in 100 years. The city is at a stand still.

There are many slum community that lives on the banks of the Coovum River, Adyar River in Chennai. The river is really a large open sewage system. Despite their poverty, the people of this community are some of the most loving and giving people I have ever met. Because of the floods they have lost about 100 homes and all their belongings.
