Shahid Afridi conveys his good wishes for the Kerala flood victims

More than 400 people have lost their lives and millions have been displaced by the horrific floods in Kerala.

Kerala has been affected by torrential rains and flood

Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi on Monday (August 20) posted a heartfelt message for the Kerala flood victims. Morgan sent across his prayers and wishes for the Keralaites through a tweet.

Afridi, who enjoys a massive fan following across the border, took to Twitter and wrote: “Deeply saddened by the devastating floods in #Kerala #India. The @SAFoundationN shares your pain & stands with our brothers and sister in need. May Allah ease your sufferings & you find quick relief. #KeralaFloods #SAF #HopeNotOut for Humanity.”

It is worth mentioning here that Afridi opened a foundation in March 2014, which aims to provide best medical facilities to the downtrodden.

Besides Afridi, leading non-Indian cricketers such as Eoin Morgan, AB de Villiers and Danielle Wyatt have also tweeted in solidarity for the people of Kerala.

After a week of fierce downpours, rainfall eased on Monday and flood levels have fallen in many districts of Kerala. Army helicopters and boats kept up missions to find trapped survivors and drop food and water in isolated villages.

The situation was so grim that more than 400 people lost their lives because of torrential rains and flood in Kerala. After taking stock of the situation, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has announced a grant of Rs 500 crore apart from the Rs 100 crore declared by Home Minister Rajnath Singh last week.

Aside from the PM Relief fund, various ministers of state, officials, celebrities and people from various walks of life have contributed money and valuables to provide relief to the flood-ravaged state.
