Weʼre raising £5,000 to raise funds for flood disaster relief operations
- Oxford, UK
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Kerala, the southern state in India, is going through the worst flood the state has seen in a century. As the death toll has risen to 400 with more people feared missing, rescue operations conducted by the government and private individuals are underway to mitigate the distress caused by the floods and landslides.
Around 1,000,000 people have been spread across around 5600 relief camps throughout the state. They are in urgent need of supplies including food, medicine and sanitary products. Even though the rains began to ease, there are still families stranded in their houses without food or water. With families displaced and homes damaged beyond repair, any contribution you could make will be helpful. Your donation will be sent directly to the chief minister’s distress relief fund which will give a boost to the rescue and relief operations.
Alternatively, you can send money to the fund directly using the information on Kerala government’s web page https://cmdrf.kerala.gov.in/ . Should you wish to know more information about the flood please see the links below.

Dear Friends, Thank you very much for your support so far. Even though the rain began to ease down and flood water is retreating, there are around a million stranded in need of basic supplies. Whatever support we can offer will go a long way in helping the relief efforts. Please contribute or share if you have not done so yet.
