KARE

The journey so far

Since the devastating Chennai floods, KARE has been providing valuable assistance to people affected by natural calamities. The initiative which was started to provide hope to the people in need has come a long way since 2015. The volunteers of KARE, in 2018, supported people affected by the GAJA cyclone by distributing relief materials and other essentialities. The team also aided the people affected by the Kerala Floods in 2019 by assisting them with relief materials. The COVID-19 pandemic which has drastically affected the lives of many, since 2020, brought the team together once again to facilitate awareness and support. Various activities such as circulating weekly response bulletins, informational posters, infographics, booklets and the distribution of food packages to the frontline workers are undertaken by the team. Besides these, KARE has also conducted emotional wellbeing sessions with YourDost. A helpline number for people to connect with counselors and to receive appropriate COVID-19 related information has also been launched.
