The Congregation of the Brothers of The Sacred Heart Kerala Flood Relief and Rehabilitation A Project Proposal
I thank you very much for your all the support and cooperation in our mission in India for the marginalized people. We pray for your mission and good health.
You might have heard about the devastating situation of flood in Kerala killing over 350 people and rendering lakhs more in relief camps across the state. With much pain I also inform you at this point of time that one of our members Br. Anthony Adimai, SHJ, sadly lost his life in the landslide at Devikulam due to this flood. I invite you to kindly pray for the repose of his soul.
After 2 weeks of incessant rain and landslides, water has just started recedingand people who have been rendered homeless are struggling to bring back a semblance of normalcy to their lives. In the last few days I was in touch with local CRI trying to mobilise their support in various forms to extend our solidarity to the victims. Already teams of volunteers are at the site doing assessment and assisting in the rescue efforts. The local CRI members are generous to offer their voluntary service, particularly in the areas of health and medical assistance. In this context, we are proposing to intervene in one of the worst affected districts of Kerala, namely Idukki where our brother sacrificed his life. We are proposing to assist in the relief as well as rehabilitation to most deserving victims. Please find the project proposal seeking your kind financial support. The project interventions will be implemented with active voluntary support from the local CRI members.
I am proposing to send this project to know agencies in an attempt to mobilize the required financial resource. I will be very happy to receive part of the grant requested from you that will be a great support for our work. On completion of the project interventions, I will be sending report with photographs of progress made along with audit of finance received.
Thanking you and Look forward to your generosity in assisting the victims and also requesting you to kindly keep the victims in your prayers.
Yours sincerely in Christ
