A special appeal

Can you spare £10 to help save 25 houses in Kovalam being destroyed by the sea?

The currents in the Bay of Bengal have changed and houses of the desperately poor villagers, usually far from the sea, are about to disappear under the waves.

So urgent is the need to shore up the houses with boulders, that the Venkat Trust has lent the money for 25 lorry loads of rocks. This has to be a loan as the Trust’s funds can only be spent on education in Kovalam and so it will have to be repaid.

We need to raise £3500. If you can help, we would be very grateful for online donations via this link to save the houses from the destructive force of the sea.
