Last year, incessant rainfall wreaked havoc in Tamil Nadu, and led to the loss of several lives, assets and livelihoods. With a lot of help from all quarters, the state limped back to normalcy eventually. However, some relief operations are still in progress to help victims rebuild their homes and restart their lives. Jacqueline Fernandez is backing one such initiative.

We have found out that the actor has joined hands with an NGO, Habitat For Humanity, and they have launched a Tamil Nadu Flood Relief Campaign, called Jacqueline Builds. “As part of this initiative, funds are being raised to build houses that were damaged during the floods, and to help the victims in various other ways,” says an insider.

Apparently, when a considerable amount is generated, Jacqueline will personally visit Chennai, and overlook the procedure of getting the houses built for the victims. Interestingly, Jacqueline’s entire team, including her manager, assistant, hair and make-up artists, spot boy and driver, have lent their support to the cause by contributing as much as they can. “They feel strongly towards the cause the actor is supporting. So, they are also putting in their best efforts to help her in this initiative,” adds the insider.

When contacted, Jacqueline said, “It is truly heart-breaking. My team members feel likewise, and have extended their support to the cause.”
