Open your Flipkart app and donate to support Kerala flood relief
The flood situation in Kerala has reached alarming proportions. According to official sources, over 160 people have lost their lives and thousands rendered homeless as incessant rainfall, the highest in a hundred years, wreaks havoc on the southern state. With rivers in spate, bridges washed away, airport runways waterlogged, and railways and road networks crippled, the relief challenge is a daunting one. Over 2 lakh people are living in 1,500 relief camps across the state. Even as NDRF and volunteer relief teams battle rising waters and the threat of landslides to rescue and rehabilitate the affected people, they need all the support they can get, not only for immediate flood relief but for rebuilding and rehabilitation efforts.
