In the recent Kerala flood disaster, 247 deaths have been reported and over 600,000 people are residing in relief camps. A total of 17343 houses were damaged due to this disaster leaving the people in dire need of help and support from the country and the world.
The state is in a critical condition requiring complete rehabilitation and here’s how you can help no matter where you are:
1. AMAZON or FLIPKART
Amazon and Flipkart have tied up with NGO’s striving to offer relief support to the victims. Log in to either of the apps and the flood relief banner will show up on the app’s home page. On Amazon, you will be led to a page with the registries of three NGOs — Goonj, Habitat for Humanity and WorldVision — from which you can choose the products you want to buy, which will then be donated to these NGOs. On the Flipkart app, you will be taken to a page where you can make a donation to Goonj.
2. The Chief Minister’s Distress Relief Fund
A direct bank transfer can be made to this fund. Money can also be sent through UPI.
Account name: Chief Minister’s Distress Relief Fund
Account number: 67319948232
Bank: State Bank of India

PayTM has promised users that it will match their contribution rupee for rupee. If a user contributes ₹100, PayTM will also contribute ₹100 to the Chief Minister’s Distress Relief Fund.
