Some more info about the organisers and the situation in Kerala…
Taunton Malayali Association is a registered charity and local community group. The Malayali people originate from a beautiful state in the South West of India called Kerala. Kerala has a large network of waterways and at the start of July Kerala suffered the worst floods in almost a century after unusually heavy monsoon rain. Around 1/6 of all people living in Kerala have been affected by the floods and hundreds have been killed – it has devastated people’s property and lives. People affected by the floods are now facing the difficulties of increasing levels of illness and disease and the enormous task of rebuilding their homes and lives. Taunton Malayali Association is running a fundraising campaign on a local level to help support people affected by the crisis in Kerala. They are a direct link to the people in Kerala which means any money raised will be going straight where it’s needed.
