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.
