Kerala students

With more than half of Kerala submerged in water due to rain, members of Kerala Students Association of University of Mysore (UoM) embarked upon a meaningful fund collection campaign for flood victims in city yesterday.

The students got themselves divided into seven groups and set out with a cardboard-box with a label ‘Help Kerala flood victims,’ seeking funds from shops, business establishments and general public, explaining the gravity of the situation in a friendly way with no element of compulsion. Moved by the humble request the students got a good lot of contributions.
