As you are probably aware, MAUK have been busy raising funds to help victims of the Floods that devastated our beautiful Kerala and took the lives of many of our brethren.
We have promised to keep you informed regularly about our efforts . We now write to give you with an update as Phase 1 of our relief efforts ended on 30 September 2018.
Realising the magnitude of the disaster, MAUK was one of the very first organisations to swiftly evaluate the situation in the affected area through our members/volunteers who have been on holiday in the area and our local contacts.
In the initial days following the floods, MAUK volunteers collected essential non-perishable items including food, medicine, clothes and dry cleaning products and forwarded it to members of the Loka Kerala Sabha who arranged cargo and distribution facilities. Our task was made easier by the coverage we got from BBC London News. We have also used our social media pages to request for support. As it was not MAUK practice, we did not provide a live update of our efforts through social media during this stage.
