What is Friend Ship?
makefriendship.org is a platform for you to show some love and gratitude to the fishermen community, who had selflessly helped Kerala survive the worst floods seen nearly in a century.
This forum helps you to contribute to their community, through life insurance policy benefits, to each one of them, at a cost of Rs.24. The money that is credited to the account of a fishermen society will get transferred to ‘New India Insurance company’ who issues policies for the fishermen.
For every policy bought, we will share the contact details of a fisherman, whom you can befriend with. You can contact them, express your gratitude and assure that you are there for him as a friend. The insurance policy is only the first step, more of a humble gesture that
Multiple policy supports.
Suppose you wish to pay for multiple policies, for e.g. 10 numbers, but wish to get the contact details of only a single fisherman, we will give those extra 9 contacts to schools, enabling students to participate in this for free and understand the community.
They will also be engaged in an activity of making tiny paper boats, on which they can decorate and pen a few words of gratitude for these brave men! This can cultivate a friendship between the families of the student and the fisherman. Such gestures shall etch the importance of kindness and empathy forever in the hearts of these young minds.

Friend Ships sailing back to the fishermen…
These Friend Ship boats made out of love and gratitude, are collected and given to the fishermen as a ‘Token of Gratitude’, along with their insurance policy as a symbol of the boats that saved thousands of people in distress.
A small token for the real heroes of Kerala Flood 2018 to know that, they are always remembered!
