The terrible floods in Tamil Nadu, especially Chennai, have taken everyone by a rude surprise. The floods were expected in the region but nobody thought they would be so devastating. So far, close to 300 people are head and lakhs are homeless or stranded.
While there is no harm in praying for the victims and dedicating numerous social media posts to them, what they practically need it help… and lots of it!
