CM Pinarayi Vijayan reached out to the Malayalee community in United States and invited their participation in the rebuilding of Kerala. Speaking at a function in New York, CM urged Malayalees in US to join the Global Salary Challenge, a donation drive inviting Malayalees all over the world to contribute one month’s salary for Kerala. We must do our utmost for rebuilding the State that was ravaged by an unprecedented flood. The allocations as per the norms of National Disaster Management Act will be insufficient for rebuilding efforts. Crowdfunding measures are inevitable. All who are capable must join the Global Salary Challenge. Kerala is expecting a contribution of about 150 Cr from the Malayalee community in US. A meeting of the donors will be convened in 3 months. CM also invited the Malayalees in US to make investments in the State.
