THE STORY:

SANKARA CANCER FOUNDATION INC wrote -

Sankara Cancer Foundation is raising funds to help the Chennai flood victims get adequate shelter and health care to prevent spread of water-borne disease and help treat those with malnutrition and illness. The Chennai floods are a historic once-in-a-lifetime event that is ravaging the city with over 175 cm (5.74 feet) of rainfall causing massive flooding and displacement of millions of people. The Chennai metro area is home to over 8 million people with conservative estimates, from various sources, of about 25-30% or so being displaced by the flooding and losing access to food and shelter. Please donate generously to help us reach those in need. We’re aiming to reach at least 100k people with our efforts. We are working with local hospitals to help them provide the shelter, food and treatment for flood-related illnesses.

We are both US citizens settled in the Boston area in US since 1991. Our parents who continued to live in India were impacted during the floods. Krishna's father was initially treated for chikungunya and later correctly diagnosed and treated for typhoid. We are very thankful to the Chennai-based volunteers who helped them and millions of other people. Nobody but the volunteers reached them to provide them the timely help. This natural disaster is similar in magnitude to Hurricane Katrina, however the tax-money based resources will not be sufficient to address the need for humanitarian help, especially to educate,diagnose and treat water-borne infections in the flooded Chennai area. We know that our little drop in this bucket will make a difference. 4 years ago
