In August 2018, the South Indian State of Kerala It was the worst flooding in the state in the near centaury. Massive flood across Kerala have taken the life of the 350 people and displaced over eight lakhs.
The heavy rain started on August 14th afternoon and it lasted for forty eight hours continuously. The flood was worsened when water was released from thirty four dams. The authorities were forced to open the door for the first time and this led to the major disaster.
As the water was flowing higher and higher, people were taken to different places. All the Christian Institutions were opened as relief camps. Our colleges and schools were also opened as relief centers. There was no difference between religion and they stayed together as one family under one roof.
Many of our children are affected by this flood. We visited more than thirty houses of their children and witnessed their miserable conditions. They lost all their basic amenities. The houses were filled with mud and dirt in massive amounts. Many lost their boundary walls. It takes a long time to restart a new life.
Varapusha, Muttinakam, Kothad, Cheranalloor, Vaduthala, Chittoor, Kadamakkuddy, Pizhala, Koonammave and Alwaye - Wayanad too.
the 17 August 2018:
Since 14 August 2018 Torrential rains touch Kerala without stopping.
The island of Vypeen is ravaged by the floods many homes of our sponsored families are destroyed ... and the displaced population in makeshift camps.
the provisional balance sheet: 164 dead but the rain continues ... more than 60 000 people have been displaced.
From the water to the roof of the houses, a hospital that always works with water almost to the knees ....
Godfathers have a thought for your sponsored families and for the sisters in charge of the children.
I had a whastapp from Ronald Peters telling me that his house is destroyed that they have nothing left and his family is moved to a relief camp.
Sister Jose Maria sent me photos that I can not relay because they are protected by copyright.
