Jacqueline Fernandez has been quite active on social issues. The actress, who has advocated many causes like marine conservation and animal welfare, is doing her bit to help rebuild Kerela after the devastating flood that hit the state, according to a release. It says that Jacqueline will be flying to Kerala on November 30. She will be heading to Aluva, which is located in the northern suburb of the city of Kochi, to help rebuild homes that were destroyed by the floods in August.
“It was truly heartbreaking to see what citizens of Kerala went through this year. The floods may be over, but its effect on the lives of hundreds and thousands of people is long-lasting—it has not only affected families but also damaged homes," Jacqueline said in the release.
The actress will be visiting Thuruth and Naduvannur. During her visit, Jacqueline will also interact with the affected families. The actress has already contributed Rs 5 lakh towards the rehabilitation work. Jacqueline is also helping the relief work team mobilise funds of over Rs 50 lakh by encouraging individual donors and corporates to contribute.
Jacqueline said she is personally looking into the details of the relief work. "I want to help the people of Kerala reconstruct their homes and recover".
Jacqueline also represented the voice of animal welfare at the UN on the world animal day as she took 8 million petition signatures voicing her opinion against animal testing. Recently, the actress also addressed the One Young World Event in The Hague as she expressed her thoughts about sexual harassment.
