The country and people from across the world have opened their hearts and wallets to rebuild flood-hit Kerala. Corporates, individuals, chief ministers, film stars and artistes came forward to help collect over Rs. 10 crore. The amount raised by the NDTV-TataSky telethon will now be used to rehabilitate villages, rebuild schools, hospitals and to reconstruct homes in worst-affected districts of the state -- Alappuzha, Idukki and Pathanamthitta. Plan India, a non-profit, non-government organisation which is overseeing this effort, aims to reach the deeper pockets of the state and help get Kerala back on its feet. The Plan India teams are already on the ground and the process has begun. Mohammad Asif, director of programme implementation, told NDTV that the money raised will be spent on kits with food and household items. Education kits will also be made available to children.
