This month our charity is flood relief in South India.
Over 2.5 million people have been forced from their homes by heavy rains and flooding in Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh in South India. Local communities report that this has been the worst flooding recorded in over 100 years.
With the Krishna River inundated, over 50 villages have been completely submerged or marooned in Andhra Pradesh. The famous temple town of Mantralayam has been under ten feet of water for more than a day. Rescue operations are difficult because accessibility to some affected towns is severely limited.
We are supporting relief efforts in this area
