Recently, unprecedented floods in many parts of Kerala have devastated the landscape – destroying homes and livelihoods, displacing thousands, and taking many lives. These are the worst floods the state has seen in the last century. Kochi Biennale Foundation urges material and monetary donations from any who are able.

The Chief Minister’s Distress Relief Fund is a targeted effort by the Government of Kerala to provide immediate assistance to those affected by the disaster. Along with the distribution of basic goods and immediate care, the Fund also will work to rebuild damaged infrastructure all over the state.
