Shirdi: Shri Saibaba Sansthan Trust (SSST) in Ahmednagar district of Maharashtra today decided to contribute Rs five crore towards the relief work in flood-hit Kerala. Chairman of the Trust, Dr Suresh Haware, made this announcement here today.
“The SSST has decided to contribute Rs 5 crore to help the people of flood-affected Kerala. After obtaining permission from the Maharashtra government, a cheque would be handed over to Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis,” he said.
Heavy rains and consequent floods have claimed 231 lives in Kerala since August 8, besides causing an estimated loss of Rs 20,000 crore to the state. Around 13 lakh people are currently put up in relief camps as the southern state is facing its worst flood in 100 years.
