We have seen reports and coverage of severe flooding and scenes of devastation affecting the Indian state of Kerala due to unusually high rainfall during the monsoon season. The flood, which has been categorised as the worst in nearly a century, has so far claimed 445 victims and displaced a million people. Additionally, more than 10,000 kilometres of roads have been destroyed or damaged and wiped out 50,000 houses.
 
In response to this traumatic occurrence, which has imposed a heavy toll on the people in Kerala, the Rahmatan Lil Alamin (Blessings to All) Foundation (RLAF) will be starting an online collection in aid of the survivors of the Kerala flood at the Muis website https://www.zakat.sg/ePayment/donations.aspx starting Tuesday, 28 August to 7 September 2018.

sIn addition, all 70 mosques in Singapore will participate in a special collection through donation boxes beginning Monday, 3 to 7 September 2018. All boxes will be marked “In Aid of Survivors of Floods in Kerala’’.

Members of the public can also offer their donations in cash or cheque. Cheques should be made payable to “RLAF” with the words “In Aid of Survivors of Floods in Kerala” written on the back. Cash and cheques can be delivered to the following:
