Jacqueline’s quest to spread positivity
Jacqueline Fernandez will be flying to Aluva, in the northern suburb of the city of Kochi in Kerala, to help rebuild homes that were destroyed in the Kerala floods in August.
A source reveals, “Habitat for Humanity India is launching the second edition of Jacqueline Builds. The actor will be visiting areas such as Thuruth and Naduvannur, in Kerela, which are half an hour’s ride apart from each other. During her visit, Jacqueline plans to interact with the affected families. Meanwhile, she is involved in helping the relief work team mobilise funds of over ₹50 lakh by encouraging individual donors and corporates to contribute. From her end, she’s trying to be completely involved in the entire process.”
Talking about it, the actor says, “Habitat for Humanity helped me put together Jacqueline Builds, for Tamil Nadu back in 2016. When we started we did not really expect the amount of help that we received from all over India, hence the second edition of Jacqueline builds for Kerala was but natural. Our small support will help to not only rebuild their homes but also their lives, in a way , by bringing some positivity around. The most important thing in this initiative is we start from bottom — right from carrying the bricks to putting cement and constructing a whole new place which they can call a ‘Home’. The happiness they get and the relief they get as they again will be having a shelter to live under to be with their family, is priceless.”
