As you will have seen in the media, the state of Kerala in southern India has suffered terrible floods. Hundreds of people have been killed and many more are missing; countless homes have been washed away, and the monsoon season is set to continue until early September. The leading Catholic volunteering charity, the St Vincent de Paul Society (SVP), is very active in Kerala and they are doing great work helping the victims of the flood in local communities. However, they desperately need funds. Please contribute to the SVP’s Kerala appeal.
To donate, visit www.svp.org.uk telephone 020 7703 3030 or send cheques made out to SVP (write ‘Kerala appeal’ on the back) to SVP, Romero House, 55 Westminster Bridge Road, London SE1 7JB. And please remember our sisters and brothers in Kerala in your prayers.
