The Kerala flood situation has ravaged the state after unprecedented rains for the last two weeks. The rains have triggered severe waterlogging and landslides claiming the lives of at least 167 people. On August 12, Centre announced an assistance of Rs 100 crore to the state for the relief work. At the time when the people of Kerala needs all the help they could get, many people from around the world are gathering money, food and other required things for the victims. In a unique way to help people, two kids from the state are doing their bit in helping the flood-affected people. A brother-sister duo from Kochi broke their piggy bank and donated all the money they had collected in last two year to Chief Minister’s flood relief fund.

According to News18, on August 11, two kids, Haroon and Diya, children of a Kochi-based couple Sidhique Mallassery and Fathima Siddique broke their piggy bank and decided to help flood victims. The kids have been saving the money for last two years to buy a study table. They saved a total of about Rs 2000.

Following this, their mother, Fathima, narrated the incident on a Facebook post which in a very short time has gone viral.

In a very emotional post, she said, “The kids saw us donating clothes and other things to the relief camps. They (children) asked us if they can give away their entire money from their ‘baby bank’ to the Chief Minister’s Distress Relief Fund. I was so happy to hear that.”

ഹാറൂണിനും ദിയക്കും കഴിഞ്ഞ രണ്ടു വർഷമായി കിട്ടുന്ന പൈസ ഒക്കെ സൂക്ഷിച്ചു വെക്കുന്ന പതിവുണ്ട്. രണ്ടു വർഷമായി കിട്ടുന്ന…

“They were able to collect a total amount of Rs 2210. I know it’s not a huge amount but they have done their part. Now we have decided to donate the money to CMDRF,” Fathima said, adding they didn’t allow her to take money from their ‘bank’ when a small shortage came to buy fish earlier.

Their mother also stated in her post that her family wished to contribute to the CM’s relief fund and challenge the alleged hate campaign that discouraged Keralites from donating to the CM Flood Relief Fund.


Help appeal

Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan had also appealed to the people to contribute for the relief efforts in the state. CM Pinarayi Vijayan is urging the people to help and he said, “Kerala is experiencing an unprecedented situation due to heavy and continuous downpour and resultant floods and natural calamity. We need enormous help and liberal support from the NRI community across the globe. I appeal members and collaborators of Lokakerala Sabha and Norka Roots to extend your generous support and assistance to bring back our brethren to normalcy and the flood-hit areas to stability.”

Meanwhile, there have been many official camps that are set up for the donations, here are a few details of the verified camps.
