When Kerala witnessed its worst flood in a century, Aster Volunteers answered the distress call.
More than fifty thousand homes had been destroyed, and 300 plus people died. To make matters worse, more than eighty thousand kilometres of roads were damaged, stopping all incoming aid in its tracks. At this trying time, Aster Volunteers sent out Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and rescue teams to relocate and rehabilitate those affected by the floods. Squads were dispatched to flood-affected areas in Kochi, Wayanad, Calicut, Idukki and their surrounding areas. And although we’ve managed to make a considerable impact, the job is far from over. Aster Volunteers continues to help in the rebuilding effort through medical camps, school supplies for children, and a rehabilitation project for the flood-affected families who lost their homes.
