How long has Penny Appeal USA been helping people in India?
Since 2016, we have been providing families in India with clean water, warm meals, emergency aid and more.

We were on the ground in 2018 when the monsoon season caused the worst flooding that Kerala, India has seen in the past 100 years. Flooding and landslides affected all 14 districts in Kerala causing extensive damage to infrastructure and agriculture. Over 5 million people were affected, with the death toll exceeding 500.

Communities were left to use contaminated water, gather it from a nearby stream, or use unreliable piped water sources. With so many water sources destroyed and thousands of families living in relief camps, the possibility of an outbreak of waterborne disease was inevitable.

We provided flood victims with access to safe, clean drinking water at both the household and community levels. Water Purification Units were set up in homes and in communal areas and community members were trained on how to use them.

We were there for Indian families when they faced catastrophic flooding and we will be there as they endure the life-threatening effects of COVID-19, with the help of our supporters.
