Support flood victims in Chennai
Donations to this NGO have 50% tax exemption for Indian donors.
Chennai has been paralyzed by the worst flooding in a century. All the water reservoirs around the city have also been overflowing flooding the city and displacing thousands.
The government machinery is unable to fully manage the scale of the tragedy, while the army, navy and NDRF are helping the situation, there is a strong need for citizens like us to step in and help save Chennai and Chennaiites
Bhumi along with a consortium of non-profit organisations and individuals has been working for the immediate relief of flood affected individuals. Since, the tragedy has struck our volunteers have been collecting and distributing tonnes of relief material and thousands of food packets every day.
We have been careful about avoiding duplicating the efforts of the government or other organisations and only supplementing existing efforts.
Thousands have been forced to abandon their homes and displaced into relief camps and other temporary shelters. The money will be used to faciliate their immediate relief like food, drinking water, clothing, mats and blankets.
When people start returning to their homes there is also a requirement to provide for long term relief and rehabilitation including prevention of communicable diseases. The money will also be used to support shelter homes and orphanages affected by the flooding.
