FLOODS IN KERALA
The recent floods in Kerala has wreaked havoc, leading to huge loss in life and property. It has been one of the worst disasters the country has witnessed in recent times. The death toll is increasing with each day passing and there has been untold crop and property destruction. There are hundreds of thousands of people in relief camps, as the houses are still submerged in flood waters or buried under landslides.
Amma is giving Rs. 10 crores [$1,238,200 Euros] to the Kerala Chief Minister’s Distress Relief Fund. Embracing the World is also conducting night-and-day relief and medical camps, providing food, clothing and medical aid. Some areas are so flooded that the doctors have had to work from boats. A 24-hour help-line has also been set up at Amrita University campus, manned by 400 students and faculty volunteers. In five days have fielded more than 25,000 calls, helping connect more than 100,000 people with relief and rescue.
Many of the Amrita Vidyalayam schools have been functioning as relief camps. The volunteers are actively involved in reaching out drinking water, bags of food, grocery, clothes, blankets and bed sheets to the affected people. More help will be planned out as the situation and needs are evaluated.
