Flood disaster in Kerala, Southern India

The Indian Federal State of Kerala has been hit by the worst flood disaster in 100 years. This year the monsoon has been exceptionally devastating leading to immense damage and hardship. Due to heavy rainfall 44 rivers have burst their banks flooding large parts of the state of Kerala. Up to 800’000 people are affected and to-date some 400 casualties have been reported. The damages are estimated to surpass three billion Swiss Francs. India responded immediately with relief efforts but also counts on international solidarity. 

The relief organisation “Hilfswerk GL Zürich” asks for donations for the suffering population. The funds received will be transferred to the Swiss Red Cross.

We thank you very much for your donation.
