Steni Simon ByExpress News ServiceTHIRUVANANTHAPURAM: As the subsiding rain provides a much-needed respite to the flood-hit victims, relief materials and funds are pouring in from all quarters of life.
Queerythm, the LGBTIQ+ community, has also started relief material collection centres and appealed to the public to extend a helping hand by contributing materials and funds for rehabilitation.
Two relief material collection centres have been started by the community in the short stay home facility for transmen at Kunnukuzhy and the Queerythm office at Kowdiar.
"As many as 12 volunteers have been raising awareness on contributing materials to the flood victims.
The community is planning to travel to the flood-affected areas in Pathanamthitta and Wayanad on Friday and distribute the relief materials directly in relief camps and to people stranded in their houses.
