As Kerala battles the worst-ever floods in over a century, people from all corners of the country are putting in an effort to help the victims. And now the UK-based NGO Khalsa Aid International has also joined.
The group’s volunteers from their Indian wing have reached Kochi, Kerala. Collaborating with Gurdwara Sri Guru Singh Sabha in Kochi, they have set up a community kitchen and are cooking meals to feed those stranded in the rains. Currently, they are feeding three meals daily to more than 2000 people.

Not only is Khalsa Aid helping the victims, but also various Indian states have announced relief packages for the flood-hit state. NGOs, celebrities and various citizen-help groups have joined the cause with donations and supply of relief materials.
The rescue operations are in full swing, however, people outside the state can also take part in flood relief campaigns through donations. For more details, click here.
Actor Siddharth has tried to turn the obsession of viral challenges into a good cause by starting the #KeralaDonationChallenge. He has donated a sum of Rs 10 lakh towards the cause and has put up a picture of a receipt with a letter, pleading support from people.
