As the flood situation in Kerala continues to escalate, in a press meet on Thursday Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan requested people to make generous contributions towards the Chief Minister’s Distress Relief Fund. Stressing on the damage the state has suffered in the last few days due to torrential rains and flooding, Pinarayi said the government needed more help to rebuild the state.

Celebrities in Kerala and other states have been making significant contributions to the relief efforts while encouraging their fans also to do the same. The twin pillars of Malayalam film industry, Mohanlal and Mamoothy donated Rs 25 lakh each towards the relief fund. The Association of Malayalam Movie Artistes (AMMA) have, reportedly, handed over a sum of Rs 50 lakh in two installments to the chief minister.

Young actor Tovino Thomas went a step further. He opened the doors of his house in Irinjalakkuda for the public. He has announced that the people who have been affected by floods can stay in his house, where he will also provide basic necessitates for the flood victims until the situation comes under control.

Actor Siddharth has also begun a social media challenge to encourage people to make monetary contributions for Kerala. In a statement that was posted on his Twitter account, the actor said, “I implore you to contribute whatever you can to this urgent cause. Please post your donation proof online if you wish to inspire others to do the same. Let us call this the #KeralaDonationChallenge. We all know how much the internet loves a challenge.”

He also tweeted a bank letter as a proof of making Rs 10 lakh donation to the Kerala relief fund. It may be recalled that the actor also played a very active role in relief efforts during 2015 Chennai floods.

Not just Siddharth, other Tamil actors have also been very sympathetic to the plight of people in Kerala. Actors Kamal Haasan, Suriya-Karthi, Vijay Sethupathi contributed Rs 25 lakh each to the relief fund. Karthi on Thursday met Pinarayi Vijayan and handed over the cheque. “Just met the hon’ble CM of Kerala. I understand the state needs more funds than relief material. Please donate generously to ”CMDRF”. #Keralafloods #CMDRF @CMOKerala (sic),” he tweeted.

He also met Mohanlal and gave the cheque of Rs 10 lakh as Suriya’s contribution to the AMMA fund.

The complete text of his post is below:

Hi Friends and Fans..! I have decided to contribute “1 crore to Kerala”. I’m feeling very disheartened that it has been destroyed by flood and people suffering a lot they are like our brothers and sisters.

While seeing I wanted to do service by directly visiting the place but they informed its hard to get Into all places because it’s raining heavily and told to wait till it reduces.. now that the rain has reduced I thought it would be right if I go through government because they know which areas are more affected thus I have got an appointment with Kerala CM this Saturday. I want to give my donation to CM and place a request to him asking him to help me to do service directly to the affected people. Thanks for all those who have contributed to kerela and who are going to.. I pray to Ragavavendra swamy for Kerala to rebuild soon.

Raghava Lawrence is the latest celebrity to contribute for the relief work from Tamil Nadu after Vijay (Rs 70 lakh).
