land of Kerala (southernmost state of India), famously
referred as "God's own Country" is reeling under the
aftermath of unprecedented rainfall and devastating
floods, the worst in over a century. It is estimated
that the floods may have caused over Rs. 19,500 crores
(~ USD 3 + billion) worth of damages, destroying homes,
roads, bridges and huge tracts of farmland. As per the
Government of Kerala, it has killed more than 400 people
and has displaced more than 700,000 people.
While the water has receded thousands of people
are living in hut like temp shelters.
Care & Share is
planning to build 25 houses in the districts of
Thrissur, Ernakulam and Alappuzha. Each house is around
450 sq ft with 1 Bedroom, Kitchen and Hall and costs
around Rs 4 lakhs to Rs 4.5 lakhs (appx $6,000).

Elderly people (age above
Cancer or similar life
Won’t these families get
help from the Govt?
Nobody knows that yet. Even if
Govt is doing something, it will take its own course of
time. Families with critical needs may not be able to
wait that long.
There are some funds
coming from the govt. Will the beneficiaries get double
We are doing every effort for
this not to happen. We will be distributing funds only
with the knowledge of local panchayaths. Govt funds are
routed through panchayaths. Panchayaths will make sure
beneficiaries are not paid through multiple channels.
Who will carry out the
In each location, there is a
group of masons, carpenters, roof builders, etc. They
will be monitored either by Care & Share Kerala Chapter
members or our point of contact.
How much will it cost to
To completely rebuild a house of
450 SF, it will cost somewhere between Rs 4.5 lakhs to 6
lakhs depending upon the location. We will cap our
support to Rs 4.5 lakhs (appx $6,000)
