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

IFSC: SBIN0070028

SWIFT code: SBININBBT08

3.  PayTM

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.

Open the PayTM app and tap on the Kerala Floods icon on the homepage, and contribute through this. If you do not have the mobile app, please follow this link to make your contribution.

Your help and support in its smallest form can contribute towards building another livelihood.
