SCIAF is responding to the emergency situation in Kerala and have sent £30,000 to help families there. This money will provide rice, oil, beans and basic household items like soap, toothpaste and buckets to thousands of people left homeless.

More than 350 people have been killed, most in landslides, since the monsoon started in June and 725,000 are now in emergency relief camps, while thousands more are awaiting rescue.

In our parish and in our Diocese we have a good number of people who originate from Kerala and who will have families affected by this devastation. It would be good for us to offer support at this difficult time.

More details from SCIAF can be found here.
