Make giving easier #riseforkerala


Going through social media, I come across numerous posts regarding Kerala relief initiatives. Not just from India, but from across the world.

All the information is out there, but it is scattered all over. Unfortunately there is not much I can do to support the cause from here, other than donating money and sending them my best wishes. But you could! So here is something which I think might help. I am consolidating all the important information I have come across, below for us to help people in Kerala. I hope this helps:
