Indian expats from Kerala in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) have opened collection centres for donations to support the thousands of displaced families in their flood-hit state, the media reported on Tuesday.

After one of the worst flooding in its history last year, many parts of Kerala was limping back to normalcy when nature’s fury struck again this year. Heavy rainfall and landslides in northern districts of Wayanad, Malappuram, Kozhikode, Kasargod and Kannur have so far killed 77 people and pushed thousands to relief camps.

Though far away from the tragedy, Malayalees who form the biggest Indian expat community in the UAE, have set up the centre to collect relief materials for the affected, the Khaleej Times reported.

Shoukky Sulaiman, joint secretary of the group, said three collection centres have been set up in Dubai.

“We are mainly collecting cloths, hygiene items for ladies and kids, toiletries, slippers and some food items like oats and biscuits.

“We will be sending the collected items by cargo, which will be personally received by our members. We are all trying to do whatever we can,” he added.
