Appeal to Donate ($16 or more) to Hudhud Cyclone Victims
Members of Capitol Area Telugu Society (CATS) have diligently worked to identify and bring you a direct way to help HUDHUD cyclone victims of AP. CATS in coordination with MEECONS (non - profit organization) is adopting 5 villages that has been affected and plan to help 2000 families.DONATE
· Help One Family - $16
· Help Five Families - $80
· Help 10 Families - $160
Several members and friends of CATS have been actively working through agencies and organizations and participating in relief efforts. However, several members came up with an idea to help directly by focusing on remote villages where relief efforts are not in full affect. Provide help to as many families as possible by adopting few villages.
