The flooding in Kerala has seen a lot of people come together to provide relief and temporary aid to the people affected.

After a brief lull, rains started lashing several parts of Kerala since Sunday morning, posing problems to relief work by multiple agencies in flood and landslide-hit regions.

As heavy floods continue to devastate Kerala, celebrities and politicians are urging people to do what they can to help those affected by the rain.

The Cheif Minister of Kerala, Pinarayi Vijayan, put out a tweet on Saturday with a distress relief fund asking people to contribute generously - to help better the situation.

Following this, several prominent celebrities took to Twitter and asked people to help contribute to the fund.









The Association of Malayalam Movie Artists (AMMA) has donated Rs 10 lakh and Kamal Haasan donated Rs 25 lakh. Surya and Karthi have contributed a total of Rs 25 lakh.

It also saw politicians visit Kerala to assess and help the situation.
