Kerala was affected with the 2nd worst flood after 1924 which severely affected 13 districts out of the 14 districts. Fishermen became the superheroes during the Kerala flood rescue mission. Many of these fishermen transported their boats from Trivandrum to different parts of Kerala to rescue stranded people.

You can contribute online for the Kerala Flood Relief at Chief Minister’s Distress Relief Fund donation page. The donations are exempt from income tax as well as FCRA 2010.
