Kerala has suffered severe devastation. But the time to rebuild has come.
The Better India & GiveIndia have come together to build a community of givers who can help rebuild Kerala sustainably, through monthly contributions.
These contributions will aid rehabilitation efforts in Kerala at an individual and community level for various interventions, and help restore the lives of the under-served – ranging from livelihoods, health, shelter and sanitation.
For this, we are working with three NGOs on the ground – HelpAge, Goonj, and IDEA Foundation. The project aims to help over 41,000 affected families.
GiveIndia and The Better India have come together to help Rebuild Kerala by supporting 41,000 affected families. You too can be a part of this movement and help us raise funds for the NGOs working to rehabilitate these families. If all of us come together with a small monthly contribution, we can make a real and meaningful difference in helping restore normalcy to those who need our help the most.
While this relief work helped save many lives and provided immediate aid to those who needed it the most, now comes the time to rebuild the state from scratch.

The agricultural department is now spreading awareness among the farming community to ensure that they make use of the soil for irrigation. It is also a great time to start organic farming.
