We have all heard the news of the flooding in the South Indian state of Kerala, caused by the extraordinary rains that came in this year’s monsoon season. This is the most serious flood India has experienced in a century, and is a disaster of historic proportions.
The Diocese of New York has long-standing and strong ties to the Church of South India, and to the Christian community in India. As we have done for many other areas of natural disaster across our church and world, we now ask the good people of this diocese to give again to support the relief efforts this diocese may make to help those in need, and those who have lost everything with little or no capacity to rebuild. we also invite you to make donations directly through our own diocese. You may make an online donation by clicking here. Or: checks may be made out to the Episcopal Diocese of New York and sent to the diocesan offices at 1047 Amsterdam Avenue, New York, NY 10025, with the words “India Relief” in the memo line.
