Heavy rains have caused the worst flooding in India's Kerala state in nearly a century. According to its chief minister, at least 300 people have died as a result of the monsoon floods in the past two weeks. More than 300,000 people have been displaced since August 8, the Kerala State Disaster Management Authority (KSDMA) officials said on Friday evening, adding that 2,600 villages have been flooded.

Mercy Relief will be conducting its first phase of emergency relief operations together with its ground partners to ascertain the urgent needs of the disaster survivors. Mercy Relief's initial response will be distributing food packs which include staples such as rice, wheat, dal, salt, sugar, cooking oil and biscuits.

Together with your help, we will be able to provide timely and effective aid to the affected communities in Kerala.
