Feel free to ask any questions you may have in the comments section. The situation is grim. Our fellow citizens need us at a time when they've lost everything--homes, material possessions, and loved ones. Please help as much as you can! We will notify donors on this blog when we stop accepting contributions for this particular effort.

Note: We have partnered with Goonj in previous efforts and trust their work. India Helps is an entirely volunteer-run, good faith initiative. We do not accept ANY part of your contribution for ourselves. Please arrive at your donation decisions independently.
