Geelong Maitri Inc.: Stand with Kerala – Flood Relief Appeal
Kerala, a southern state in India, is in the midst of an unprecedented tragic flooding event.
Hundreds of homes have been totally destroyed and approximately 1 million people have been displaced, staying in relief camps and shelters for their own safety. Tragically 223 deaths have been reported to date. Never before has Kerala witnessed a calamity of this scale.
Although the floodwater is finally receding in some areas, the path to recovery is long and arduous. Redevelopment will be a task of months and possibly years, but immediate concerns are to secure clean drinking water and prevent outbreaks of waterborne disease.
Geelong Maitri is an Indian Diasporic social club involved in many cultural and community activities in Geelong for the last 10 years. We believe that it is our duty to help the affected rebuild their lives.
You can help us make a genuine difference to those impacted by this devastating event. Please donate generously to the “Geelong Maitri: Stand With Kerala – Flood Relief Appeal”.
Diversitat, is a registered charity and not-for-profit community service organisation, and is partnering with Geelong Maitri for this appeal. All donations will be directed to Geelong Maitri.
