Kerala Donations

Dear IDS Supporters,

As you may already be aware, an unusually heavy monsoon season in Kerala caused extensive flooding in late August, resulting in nearly 400 deaths, thousands stranded, and over 800,000 individuals displaced from their homes, unable to return until the floods recede. The monsoon rains have since begun to ease and rescue teams have been deployed, but thousands of people remain distraught in camps.

While immediate relief efforts have already begun, IDS is looking to partner with local organizations in India, such as GOONJ and possibly others, to provide long-term rehabilitation efforts, including home reconstruction, education, and livelihood projects for the flood victims.

We ask that you please consider making a donation to IDS to support humanitarian efforts to help all those in Kerala who have lost their homes and left to rebuild their lives.

Your kindness and timely help is much appreciated!
