Kerala Floods

Incessant rains and severe flooding by overflowing rivers have affected over 32 million people, including approximately 16 million children, across 13 districts of the state of Kerala, India. It is the worst flooding seen in the state in a century.

Incessant rains and severe flooding by overflowing rivers have affected over 32 million people, including approximately 16 million children, across 13 districts of the state of Kerala, India. It is the worst flooding seen in the state in a century.

Kerala is reeling under this spate of floods. People have lost their homes and agricultural land. Roads, railway tracks and bridges have been washed away and cut off due to landslides across the state, and Kochi Airport has been closed due to rising water.

So far, the government has opened 2,000 relief camps for 300,000 people and has been providing cooked food for those in the camps. World Vision India is in the state to conduct rapid assessments. They have initial plans to reach at least 20,000 households – including around 40,000 children – in five districts by providing food, non-food items such as mosquito nets, hygiene kits (soap, toothpaste, toothbrush etc), child-friendly spaces and education support.

World Vision India is appealing for USD4 million in funding. If you would like to help the survivors of this enormous crisis, please donate to the relief effort today.

Kerala Floods survivors need necessities to survive. With your help, we can do much more.
