Especially bad this year. Texas' troubles pale in comparison. About time British media picked up on this story.

It was in the Times this morning, as a sidebar to Houston.

Apparently, this is not front page news in India, either.

It has only hit the international news because it affected Mumbai badly.

Wow, I wasn't even aware of it! 1200 killed?! confused

Everything is America, Trump, America. The rest of the world is a footnote. It's embarrassing.

Can anyone tell me who the best charity to donate to would be? Is there an overarching organisation?

I'm at a school in Mumbai.

We are working with Goonj.
You can donate to them

There's a link to the Red Cross in the OP's link.
Thank you for posting, I hadn't heard about it before.
