Help KIDS fund meals for 100 differently-abled for three months.
KIDS have decided to extend this fundraiser to give it more time to reach the target.
Many differently-abled people in Kottapuram lost their homes and their life’s earnings as the torrential rains triggered floods in parts of Kerala in August. Many have to start their lives from scratch. While KIDS is providing the psycho-social counselling they need to deal with the trauma of their loss, it is important to ensure they have access to proper nutrition, especially with outbreak of diseases posing a health risk.
The floods washed away everything--my clothes, books, everything in my home vanished, and if anything remained, it was full of mud and dirt. My father is struggling to find a job and we hope life goes back to normal soon.
Once the fundraiser closes, Donatekart will procure the dry rations and deliver them to KIDS in Kottapuram. KIDS will then distribute the rice, dal, wheat flour, sugar, tea powder and oil to 30 differently-abled people working at their centre and to 70 other differently-abled living in and around Kottapuram who have been affected by the recent Kerala floods.
