Kerala flood relief

The State of Kerala in India, is experiencing an unprecedented disaster due to heavy floods and landslides. This flood which has already claimed nearly 400 lives and has displaced almost 725,000 people living in relief camps with difficulties accessing basic necessities such as clean water and food.

Having our Movement's founding roots in this state of Kerala, the international Jesus Youth community has responded to this crisis through the formation of the #NallaAyalkkaran initiative

The Jesus Youth movement, supported through continuous intercessory prayer, has been cooperating with the government and other agencies to coordinate relief camps, bringing supplies to remote and isolated areas. There is a dedicated team of Jesus Youth directly coordinating with the government rescue operations wing, to locate and save lives. We have seen many examples of heroism, such as the Jesus Youth from the coastal regions of Kerala coming out with their boats and rescuing many lives using their skills courageously, by even risking their own lives.

Once the immediate rescue operations end, Jesus Youth is focusing on a process of long-term accompaniment in order to reinstate and rebuild lives. As part of this process, we have identified the following areas as our priority

1. Along with the existing volunteers, we plan to train and deploy 1000 Jesus Youth volunteers to provide immediate manpower assistance in the affected areas all over Kerala.

2. Provide 100 trained teams to give emotional and psychological assistance to the victims of the disaster.

3. Provide support for the maintenance and reconstruction of destroyed houses.

4. Supply appropriate kits with basic materials to restart their lives, since most people escaped from disaster areas in an emergency with empty hands, leaving everything.
