The Kerala community in Britain launch campaigns to collect money and materials to support flood victims in their home state. Most of the organisations cancelled their Onam celebrations to donate the entire funds for Kerala.

Five Loka Kerala Sabha members in the country –  Thekkumuri Haridas,  C Miranda, Manu S Pillai, Rekha Babumon and  Rajesh Krishna – issued a joint appeal to the community to support Chief Minister’s Relief Fund.

“Homeland is a dream of every NRI,” the Lok Kerala Sabha members from the UK said in the statement.  “Even while living abroad, we cherish the good old memories of Kerala.  Each and every one of us is concerned about the welfare of our dear ones back home.  The recent calamity in Kerala has caused immeasurable misery and devastation and our dear ones are facing the worst and disastrous floods.  #

“Many people have become victims of this catastrophe. Hundreds of homes have been fully destroyed   and more than that have been partly damaged by the floods.  Thousands of acres farm land have been destroyed by the recent floods.  The flood and landslides have caused havoc in each and every district and the water has washed away many shops and commercial establishments.

“Thousands of people have become homeless and many buildings and roads have been destroyed in the disaster.  Kerala has never witnessed such a worst and terrible calamity in the recent past.  In this difficult situation, we earnestly request each and every one to work beyond caste, religion, political and ethnical thinking for our homeland and support our government by donating in this mission of relief and help our poor people hit by this disaster.

The Chief Minister has called for help to rebuild the lives of people in the state. “At this of point of time, nothing can help as much as money,” Vijayan said earlier this week. Kerala needs your help. Please contribute or spread the word.
