In aid of Kerala!

Flood Relief Appeal to Kerala 

Unprecedented rains and floods have seriously affected Kerala State consecutively for the second year in a row. Many Districts in Kerala are inundated and the situation is very serious there. Even our AIPRPA Comrades are engaged in relief operations along with the State Government of Kerala. Comrade V.A.Mohanan the State General Secretary of Kerala State Association of AIPRPA has appealed for assistance from all to be directly donated in the Kerala Chief Minister’s Disaster Management Fund. I am reproducing the appeal as it is hereunder. AIPRPA CHQ endorses the appeal of Kerala State AIPRPA and seeks the assistance of all levels of our organization to Kerala at the time of their dire need – KR GS AIPRPA


Kerala State have been affected by severe flood havoc during this month (August 2019). The State had been hit by an unpreceded rain and flood last year engulfing life of several people and causing heavy damage.
The present Flood havoc has hit almost all Districts especially the Hilly Districts such as Wayanad, Idukki, Kozhikode, Malappuram & Palakkad. Other districts are also badly affected. More than 111 people have lost their lives due to heavy earth falling and bursting of rocks. All the rivers are over flown. Cochin Airport was closed for days together. Train and bus traffic were paralyzed. Thousands of people were brought to rescue shelters and about 12000 people are still in rescue shelters opened in every Panchayat.
Rescue and relief works are carried under the leadership of Chief Minister and State Government. AIPRPA Workers in the State are also engaged in rescue and relief works. The State Committee have given a call to mobilize maximum amount to The Chief Minister Disaster Management Funds. The Districts level committees of AIPRPA are fully engaged in relief works.
It is requested that possible assistance may be given to console the victims by contributing to Chief Minister's Disaster Management Fund directly or through State organizations.
V. A. Mohanan
State General Secretary
