Underprivileged people in Kerala need your help to rebuild their lives.
Kerala has a long rebuilding task ahead. Estimates of damages are in tens of thousands of crores, and over a million people are in relief camps. While the floods have affected the rich and poor equally, the poor face a much more difficult road ahead.
Goonj will work with the poor in Kerala to help them rebuild their lives. They have years of expertise in disaster relief and rehabilitation.
Goonj will focus on areas which are far flung and underserved communities. Their primary target will be areas that are more difficult to reach so as to avoid duplication of efforts by other organisations or the government.
As on date fund requirement stands at about INR 10 crore for the operation over a period over 1 year.
Goonj has already initiated action in the districts of Alappuzha, Idukki, Malappuram, Palakkad, Kannur and Wayanad and further expansion is in process.
It will take time, and commitment to rebuild Kerala. We cannot afford to let it be just another headline, and move on to the next breaking news. Ordinary people have been the true heroes in the story so far. And ordinary people like you can make the future better as well, by committing to help not just rescue, but also rebuild Kerala.
Let’s not forget those who have lost everything. Let’s not abandon them when they need us the most.
