Jacqueline Fernandez has been an active voice when it comes to social issues. The actress, who has advocated many causes like marine conservation and animal welfare, is currently striving to rebuild Kerela after the unfortunate floods hit the state. On November 30, Jacqueline Fernandez is flying to Aluva, which is located in the northern suburb of the city of Kochi in Kerala, to help rebuild homes that were destroyed in August floods.
The actress will be visiting Thuruth and Naduvannur, which are half an hour’s ride apart from each other. During her visit, Jacqueline will also interact with the affected families. The actress has already contributed Rs 5 lakh towards the rehabilitation work. Jacqueline is also helping the relief work team mobilize funds of over Rs 50 lakh by encouraging individual donors and corporates to contribute.
Jacqueline said, “It was truly heartbreaking to see what citizens of Kerala went through this year. The floods may be over, but its effect on the lives of hundreds and thousands of people is long-lasting—it has not only affected families but also damaged homes.”
The actress added that she is personally looking into the details of the relief work. “I want to help the people of Kerala reconstruct their homes and recover”.
Jacqueline Fernandez also represented the voice of animal welfare at the UN on the world animal day as she took 8 million petition signatures voicing her opinion against animal testing. Recently, the actress also addressed the One Young World Event in Hague as she expressed her thoughts about sexual harassment.
