The flood situation in Kerala state has gone from bad to worse as the number of death in the devastating floods nearing 400. With the Meteorological department predicting very heavy rains across the state till August 18, a red alert has been sounded in 14 districts and more than 1.5 lakh people have been lodged in relief camps across the state.

There are many ways by which you could donate to the Cheif Ministers Distress Relief Fund and many posts with the information is circulated on social media platforms with the hashtags #KeralaFlood #KeralaFloodRelief #KeralaFloods2018 #Donate4Kerala #DonateForKerala #KeralaDonationChallenge.
