The unexpected and unforeseen incident has left many homeless and over 26,000 hectres of crops have been damaged.
From food to water, the citizens of Kerala are in desperate need of help and the government decided to provide as much as help as possible. They have even gone ahead and requested help from other parts of the country for donations to make the situation better.
Saving their lives was our priority. Now it is our duty to help them rebuild it. Contribute generously to the Chief Minister’s Distress Relief Fund. #KeralaFloods #KeralaFloodRelief pic.twitter.com/eNHjyENt8d

If weather reports are to be believed, the chances of situations worsening in Kerala are high and many parts of the state are already submerged in water currently.
Owing to the conditions that have left many bereaved and helpless, the celebrities down South have not only pledged donation to the relief fund but are also asking fans to make donations. They are also sharing helpline numbers etc. that people will need currently. Here are a few tweets from many like Rana Daggubati, John Abraham, Nayanthara, Allu Arjun, Vivek Anand Oberoi amongst others:
Also, for people who dont have balance in their phones please call on this number to get a free recharge to be able to call the helpline numbers. We are all with you Kerala, stay strong. #KeralaFloods pic.twitter.com/lIK40HM46S
