Aid for Kerala


 KERALA’S  CRY FOR HELP
Kerala, God’s own country, has borne the brunt of Nature’s Fury, floods of epic proportions, leaving in their wake destruction and suffering, hundreds of human lives have been lost, hundreds of thousand of individuals have been displaced, their homes and livelihoods lost, fields ravaged, crops destroyed. Humanity has rarely witnessed tragedy such as this in present times.

Understanding it’s social responsibility towards humanity, WZO Trust has undertaken to play a small but determined part, along with many other NGO’ in alleviating the suffering of those affected.

As a first step, WZO Trust has arranged to assist the flood victims of Kerala by organizing food packages and utility items through Kinder Trust, Bangalore headed by  the redoubtable Mrs. Diana Bharucha. Kinder Trust have already embarked on this humanitarian mission, by tying up with Indian Air Force to make available relief packages to those affected.

Kinder Trust, Bangalore are a well known Trust that looks after children with special needs in South India. (WZO Trust had supported them recently to purchase a vehicle to ferry children with special needs).
WZO Trust has as an initial measure, pledged Rs.500,000 from their own funds and request community members to add to the amount by contributing generously towards alleviating those affected by this calamity.
Cheques may be sent in the name of “The World Zoroastrian Organisation Trust” to:

  1. WZO tying up with Kinder Trust, Bangalore to aid Kerala flood victims and inviting Parsees to contribute for same is a noble cause.
    But can WZO make a contribution from its coffers for such cause, since WZO is formed with a specific purpose, “welfare, aid and upliftment” of Zoroastrians.???

  2. Dear Yazdi,

    I have tried to send money online. However, the amount cannot be transferred. I feel the IFSC Code mentioned in your post is incorrect.

    Kindly confirm the same.

    Warm regards
