Mumbai: Bollywood actress and Habitat for Humanity India Brand Ambassador Jacqueline Fernandez has actively espoused the cause of Habitat for Humanity India’s initiatives in mitigating the severity of flood damages across India. She has rallied her online supporters and made a personal appeal to more than 50 million fans to donate to Habitat India for extending relief and rehabilitation efforts to affected populations. Jacqueline has been instrumental in rallying support for humanitarian causes through the launch of campaigns like ‘Jacqueline Builds’ during the floods in Tamil Nadu in 2015 and continued the crusade during the Kerala floods in 2018.
“India has witnessed the worst floods this year. The loss of lives and infrastructure is so massive that the entire country needs to come together and help the flood-affected families. Habitat for Humanity India has been working tirelessly on the ground to provide relief to the families in need. I have been a part of Habitat India’s crusade to ensure that families are provided with the necessary relief support. I appeal to all my friends and fans to come forward and help me and Habitat India to reach out to more families in need,” said Bollywood actress and Habitat for Humanity India Brand Ambassador Jacqueline Fernandez.
“The floods have disrupted the entire country. The support of the entire country is needed in the time of crisis. We are extremely thankful to Jacqueline Fernandez for taking time from her busy schedule and extending her support. She has been a huge support to Habitat India during the previous disasters as well. Her dedication is truly an inspiration to support the cause wholeheartedly,” said Rajan Samuel, managing director, Habitat for Humanity India.
The monsoon of 2019 has been a nightmare for millions of families in India. Assam, Mizoram and Bihar have been facing catastrophic floods since early July 2019, where 40 districts in these three states were submerged under water. Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka and Kerala also faced the wrath of heavy rains marooning 17 districts and displacing nearly 4 lakh families in the 3 states. Nearly 244 people have lost their lives in the floods. Habitat India has been working on ground to provide Humanitarian Aid Kits to the families affected by the floods.
