Following heavy rains in Kerala, the whole state has suffered casualties from the flood. With over a hundred people dead, many still struggle to receive government relief. The CM of Kerala Pinarayi Vijayan has opened up a donation portal in light of these unfortunate events to ensure that the death toll is kept to a minimum.

#KeralaDonationChallenge. It was awesome! Will you? Please?”
Along with his tweet, he had also posted the photo of a letter which described the gravity of the situation in Kerala and demanded news coverage and media attention on the issue. That letter was addressed to the people asking them to come together as fellow human beings and help the people suffering because of nature’s wrath.
