Will tragedy prevail over humanity? Kerala needs all your support now

Kerala, an abode of god, is where mountains meet the sea and are gifted lush green hills along with 44 rivers and 30 tributaries, backwater canals of 1,500 km and 55 dams. However, the once called God’s Own Country has turned into God’s Own Curse with devastating floods bringing Kerala to a standstill.
The situation worsens every minute with more than 300 people dead and lakhs of rupees worth infrastructure lost with the rising level of water. The state and its 14 districts are declared on red alert and around 1.5 lakh people are rescued safely to the relief camps set up across the state.
But more than this, people are deprived of the basic necessities like food, clothing, shelter, medical aid and proper hygiene.
