The devastating floods in Kerala have left in their wake death and destruction of unprecedented scale. The response from across the state, the country and the globe, has been immense.

Pallium India is making special efforts to reach out to people suffering from serious health issues and their families, who are affected by the floods. As can be imagined, their plight in the aftermath of a natural calamity could be much worse than that of healthy people. They need palliative care much more than during normal times.

We are mounting a campaign “Let us not leave them adrift” to provide support to them. We need your help.

We seek:

1. Palliative care doctors, nurses, social workers and other healthcare volunteers, willing to contribute their time to visit the affected areas and provide care. If you are interested, please let us know your name, email ID, mobile/Whatsapp number and location.

2. Cash donations to support the costs involved.

Pallium India, Indian Association of Palliative Care (IAPC) Kerala, all our partners and volunteers from the state will be actively involved in responding to the crisis.
