Disaster Appeal: Kerala Monsoon Flooding


Foundation Beyond Belief (FBB) is now collecting funds to support recovery efforts for those affected by the Kerala Monsoon Flooding.


Since the monsoon season started in the southern Indian state of Kerala on May 29th, over 400 people have died, which includes over 200 in the last few weeks. About 750,000 people are currently in relief camps, but thousands remain stranded without water or food.


With floodwaters up to 3 meters in some places and entire villages swept away, damage is estimated at $3 billion. Officials are calling this the worst flooding in Kerala in 100 years and the death toll and damage reports are expected to rise. Though the rain has currently lightened, monsoon season can continue until October and if heavy rains return rescue efforts will be hampered and additional lives will be put in peril.


FBB is currently vetting potential beneficiaries for this Appeal and will make an announcement when one has been chosen. As always, FBB’s goal is to maximize donated dollars to be as effective as possible, and potential grantees go through a thorough vetting process to ensure they are secular, efficient, and are committed to long-term recovery.  


As this crisis/disaster continues and more information is received, FBB may choose additional avenues for supporting those affected.


The Humanist Disaster Recovery program is sustained through a partnership between Foundation Beyond Belief and the American Humanist Association (AHA). We thank AHA for their generous support of our efforts.
