Dear Ms. Smyth,
As you know the recent flooding in India has incurred much damage and hardship on the lives on the lives of its residents, as the flooding occurred in the poorer state of Chennai. Many poor families have been dislocated from their homes with loved ones missing.
On behalf of Extending Hands Foundation, a NGO, we appeal to you for a compassionate donation to support the rescue and relief work that is currently carried out by our nation. We hope to secure more foodstuff and medicine for distribution at the relief centers sent up by our counterparts in Chennai.
Your generous contribution will be greatly appreciated. Please do not hesitate to contact us for further clarifications.
Thanking you in advance on behalf of the people of Chennai,
Extending Hands Foundation
