Kerala Flood Relief: Severe floods affected the  south Indian state of Kerala, due to unusual high rainfall during the monsoon season. One-sixth of the total population of Kerala had been directly affected by the floods and related incidents. Heavy rains in Wayanad and Idukki have caused severe landslides and have left the hilly districts isolated.
A high rainfall in Kodagu district, Karnataka nestled in the Western Ghats, caused severe landslides, flooding and large-scale displacement. More than a thousand houses were destroyed, about 5,000 people were displaced and at least 16 killed.
Salem Diocese took initiative to support flood affected  Kerala districts and Kodagu district in Karnataka through relief materials and monetary support. Messages were passed to all parishes. Relief materials were collected from all parishes of Salem Diocese and materials were sent to Adoor and Changanacherry parishes through CRI, Salem. The Flood Relief collections were sent to Caritas India, TASOSS, Kolping India and Mysore Diocese. We thank all the clergy, religious and parishioners for the immediate response and support for the Flood affected areas.
