CBM Extends Full Support to Kerala

The monsoon that hit Kerala in 2018 devastated the state by taking hundreds of lives and displacing over a million. CBM, in partnership with the Little Flower Hospital, responded to the emergency by providing medical support in relief camps and disinfecting households. CBM looks forward to providing rehabilitation services in the near future.

Kerala faced its worst monsoon in over 90 years this year. The past three months saw a 41% excess rainfall, severely affecting almost the entire state with floods and landslides. As many as 5,645 relief camps were set up across the state for over 12,47,000 people who were displaced in the torrential rains. The rains took over 370 lives and damaged more than 34,000 houses. The Government of Kerala calculated the loss to account to over INR. 19,000 crores in its initial report. 

The dire situation also witnessed the courage and fellowship of the citizens of the state as thousands of people from all walks of life have come together to open up relief camps, relocate families facing threats and rescue over 58,000 people from floods! 

CBM is extending full support to the affected people by providing medical support in the relief camps and helping those displaced come back to clean and safe households. CBM has thus far reached over 2,000 families from 17 camps with medical support and distributed over 1,000,000 medicines. 

In the weeks to come, CBM intends to expand its works to 3 districts in Kerala and reach 30,000 individuals with medical support including psychosocial care for those traumatized by the incidents. CBM will also disinfect 2,000 households, helping families to return to safer homes. The works will be done along with partner organizations and the Government of Kerala to ensure that the worst affected families get maximum support to get back their lives at the earliest.

We urge you to join us in our work. The donations we receive will be used towards relief and rehabilitation purposes and to ensure that the people get adequate medical and psycho-social support. Help us reach maximum number of people by donating here!
