Devastating floods in Chennai – appeal for donations


flood 1A you may be aware, Chennai and its rural areas have suffered their worst rains for decades, with floods causing widespread damage. Our Share and Care project in the village of Katchur in Tamil Nadu has also been severely affected. The village itself is cut off, with extensive damage at the Share and Care school and hostel. Foundations of buildings are damaged, the paddy fields have been completely washed away, wiping out next year’s rice crops, and stores of food supplies have been ruined by flood water.

flood2Please help with a donation this Christmas time. We will ensure that your money is spent on the ground, wherever it is most needed, to help alleviate the crisis for these children and the aged housed at the Share and Care Centre. We have just sent off CHF 5’000 to help meet immediate food needs.
