Kerala has witnessed its worst floods in over a century. Twelve out of 14 districts have suffered severe damage to houses, roads and agricultural lands. Overflowing rivers and water released from dams resulted in the loss of 350 lives and, according to one estimate, losses of almost Rs 35,000 crore. There is a fear of epidemic as the floodwaters recede. And the massive rehabilitation effort has just begun.

The Care Today Fund has committed Rs 8,98,700 to the ActionAid Association to support relief operations in the worst flood-affected districts. The relief effort will deliver 400 mattresses; 200 units of hygiene kits, including sanitary napkins, soap, detergent, shampoo and towels; 400 saris; and 200 units of general kits consisting of mosquito repellent, mosquito nets and antiseptic liquid. The first relief distribution effort consisting of mattresses, clothes and hygiene kits was distributed to 109 families in Pettimudi, Idukki district, on August 24.

After completion of relief work, the daunting task of rebuilding damaged houses, social infrastructures and livelihood will begin. The Care Today Fund team visited the flood-affected areas to understand the scope and the possibilities. As always, we will continue to keep you informed about the projects and the use of funds.

The Care Today Fund appeals to all concerned citizens to join hands and assist in rebuilding flood-ravaged Kerala.
