KERALA FLOOD RELIEF 2018 – AN APPEAL

We at Don Bosco Academy, McCluskiegunj today appeal to all our Staff, Students and their Parents to provide "concrete support" to tens of thousands of flood victims in Kerala, due to the deluge which is a "great calamity".

"The inhabitants of Kerala have been harshly struck by intense rains, which have caused flooding and landslides, with heavy loss of human life, with many people missing and displaced, with extensive damage to crops and homes,"

The relentless rains, floods and landslides since August 8 have claimed the lives of over 360 people in southern India's Kerala state, and the figure is expected to rise as rains continue. Over 630,000 people have been moved to nearly 3000 relief camps across the state.

Tens of thousands of people are still stranded on the rooftops without food, drinking water and electricity.  Rescue workers have yet to reach many flooded areas, some too narrow for boats to navigate.

 We ask each of you to be “generous” and “join in the relief efforts”.  “We cannot stay silent while our brothers and sisters are going through harrowing times in Kerala,” Therefore:-

  1. We request each student to do their bit by voluntarily donating at least Rs.100/- .
  2. Each of our Staff Members to donate at least One days Salary or at least Rs.1000/-.
  3. If one wishes to donate more, we would be very grateful.

The amount collected would be sent to the State of Kerala through the official agencies for relief and rehabilitation work.
