The Qatar Charity, through its representative in India, has launched emergency relief for those affected by the huge floods in the Indian state of Kerala with a total value of half a million riyals for the first stage.

This humanitarian interface coincides with the launch of a fund raising campaign targeting more than QAR 4 million to meet the urgent humanitarian needs of 60,000 people through food, medical and shelter assistance. Floods in the southern Indian state of Kerala have killed hundreds of people and displaced other thousands, causing major damage to homes and infrastructure. Qatar Charity urged philanthropists in Qatar to help people affected in Kerala, by providing food, medicine, medical assistance, restoring and rebuilding homes and reaching out for the victims as soon as possible.
