Thank you to all our donors, we have met our fundraising goal.
Palmera is raising funding for urgent emergency flooding relief for 560 families in desperate need across remote villages in Batticola.
Family Food Ration Pack: $35 each
Post Flood Cash Grant: $113 each
Due to heavy flooding in the remote villages of Batticola, in Koralai Pattu South, families are urgently in need of aid and support. The remoteness of this region makes it difficult and time-consuming to mobilise such help.
However, Palmera works with a network of local agencies, who are present on the ground and able to respond quickly in times such as these.
Across 7 villages we have been notified of families who have not been able to access needed and critical support during this time.
Across 7 villages we have been notified of 1,661 families who have not been able to access needed and critical support during this time.
We are aiming to support 560 of these families with these critical supplies by raising $35 per family for a dry ration kit. These kits include basic food items which are sufficient for a families’ survival.
Once the flooding is over, we seek to provide a one off cash grant to 150 of the most affected families.
With the floods, agricultural lands will be completed destroyed. The poorest rely on labour work to feed their families, without this, the aftermath of the floods can be devastating.
Without this assistance, disasters such as this can undo years of progress.
Your donation towards the purchase of these relief kits will go a long way towards helping these families recover from this disaster and get back on their feet, and the one-off cash grants can provide a much-needed safety net for their future. Thank you for your support.
