During the recent floods that affected India (mostly in the State of Kerala), producing 1000 fatalities and damaging thousands of homes, Carmelites, both of the Province of St. Thomas and the General Delegation of St. Therese and St. Albert, have been providing assistance to the people most affected by the floods. One example is in Chris Cappell College where shelther and all their basic necessities have been offered to some 650 people. The college buildings can be reached only by boat. Even though the level of the water is going down, many families are unable to return to their homes, and in some cases have lost their homes and continue to live in a state of emergency.
If anyone wishes to offer financial assistance to the work of the Carmelites in Kerala, that may be done through the Carmelite Curia, using the normal channels.
