Once again, heavy rains have returned to flood several parts of central and southern districts of the State of Kerala. The incessant rainfall has caused flash floods and landslides, putting children at risk of displacement, loss of home, family and belongings.
According to media reports, at least 27 people have lost their lives and hundreds have been displaced. Children face a high risk of water-borne diseases and infections such as diarrhoea and conjunctivitis spreading due to standing water and open defaecation. Children are sharing flood shelters with large numbers of unknown people, and this poses a significant risk for children, particularly of abuse and trafficking.
Save the Children Responded in 2018 and We Are Ready to Help Kerala’s Children Once Again
As per the Indian Income Tax Department’s rules, a donor is required to add their address and PAN number in case they wish to receive the 80G tax-exemption certificate
With YOUR support, our team had swiftly responded to the devastating 2018 Kerala Floods by setting up Child-Friendly Spaces and reaching 8,000 households with life-saving relief material for reviving livelihoods and creating safe homes. Save the Children is prepared again to protect Kerala’s children in need. BUT we cannot do this without YOU.
The vulnerable communities and their children are the worst-affected. Many of them have lost everything they have. Provision of daily essentials for their survival is the need of the hour, besides safety and security. Save the Children intends to reach approximately 10,000 children impacted by the disaster. Your support will help with on-ground relief mobilization and will go a long way to help provide Food Security and Shelter, Education and WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) and Livelihood support.
THIS IS AN URGENT APPEAL. PLEASE COME FORWARD FOR THE CHILDREN OF KERALA.
