650 families who are clients of Kalangarai were severely affected by the cyclone that hit South India on November 15. Many houses and belongings were destroyed. Kalangarai provided immediate relief in supplies such as food, mats, utensils, clothes, etc. and are now starting the second phase of rehabilitation by repairing thatched houses with coconut seedlings, replacing cement sheets on cement houses and tiles on the tiled houses. Please consider making a donation to help with rebuilding their homes.
Thank you for your support!
