Flooded Kerala need your Generous Help

Kerala, one of the Southern states of India is affected with flood due to heavy rain fall. Kerala floods were a result of the usually severe amount of southwest monsoon rains. 35 out of 39 reservoirs in the state were opened for the first time in history and all five gates of the Idukki Dam were opened at the same time for the first time. Heavy rain in Wayanad has left the hilly district isolated. Districts, Ernakulam and Alappuzha is covered with water about 70%.Over 400 people died since 29th
May as per the chief minister of Kerala. Out of these numbers 200 were dead in past 5 days due to heavy rainfall and over 215 landslides. The numbers are raising every moment. Over 300,000 people are moved to more than 2400 shelters across the state. The reports state, over 10,000 kms of roads were destroyed. About 30,000 houses were damaged or completely destroyed.To put this in perspective why all this is happening in Kerala is because, even in ‘normal’ years, my state gets the highest amount of rainfall among the major states in India. The average annual normal rainfall for Kerala is nearly 3000 millimetres – 2924.3 mm, to be exact. By contrast, neighbouring Tamil Nadu gets 912.4 mm rainfall. Karnataka gets 1147.1 mm, Andhra Pradesh 890 mm, Telangana 942.6 mm and even compared to UK, which receives 885mm.The normal rainfall in this period should have been 1606.5 mm. But this year, from 1 June (the onset of the South-West monsoon in India) to 16 August 2018, Kerala has received excess rainfall of 30-40% (varying with districts). As expected, many districts has seen many landslips and casualties.The shutters of 35 out of 39 dams in Kerala have been opened to release water, letting through a minimum of 0.75 million litres of water/sec from major dams. A red alert has been issued in all 14 districts and hundreds of thousands of people are living in relief camps. More people are being evacuated from their homes as the torrential rains haven’t stopped. Cochin International Airport has been closed till 26th August due to the floods. Hundreds of thousands of people have lost their homes, livestock, properties and lands, literally everything they had.Reports on mediaBBC :

Need of the hourPeople are being evacuated by the help of over 100 units of Army, Navy, Central Disaster Management, Local Government Services, and lay people. As the water is not been reduced, the lives of people are in danger.
As a second phase support, we need to help the people sheltered with food, clothes, medicine, water, toiletries, sanitary napkins, and all other necessary items.
Once they are in a process of return to their houses, as expected more than 30,000 houses are either destroyed or damaged. They need help to do this as their agricultural income has completely loss, their live stock all gone, were not able to do any jobs for past couple of weeks.It is a time for us to extend our generous hand to work on this. More than 3000 volunteers of Hospital Ministries India, True Light Ministries India and other organizations will extend their hands to work on this situation as they do now on this first phase.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
