Cry for help from the US for a little village in Kalyan

John Verghese, from Pennsylvania, U.S.A., has written this on the Mumbai Help Blog. Can someone suggest a way to help his little village in Kalyan? Or atleast information on how the local government can be informed about their plight. Here is an excerpt from John's message:
I have a family consisting of my father, mother and a sister back home.

[...]

My family stays at a small village called Mharal which is four kilometers away from Kalyan. People generally dont know where Mharal is simply because its a village and never in any sort of limelight. [...]

Most of the people who stay here at Mharal, work at Century Rayon Chemicals, one of the biggest producers of Rayon and Nylon in the country. [...] very close to our village. Century Rayon High School is the famous school in the vicinity. [...] The river Ulhas, flows close by to this village. So there is a constant fear of floods in the monsoon season. If you travel by road from Kalyan to the famous Titwala Sidhivinayak Mandir, you will definitely come across Mharal.

July 26th was one of the worst days that Mharal had seen. Houses in Mharal were submerged under water and the only thing that is left with people are their lives. They have nowhere to go and they are completely dependent on others for their basic necessities like food and drinking water. Telephone lines are completely out of order and the whole place is in a mess.

Even my family has lost everything and they will have to start everything from scratch all over again.

I wrote this article to bring to the attention of each and everyone reading this that there is a place in the world called Mharal which desperately needs help at this time of crisis.

[...]

Regards,
John Varghese.
update: John, a message for you from the comments section:
Could you mail Suhail Kazi at kazionline AT gmail DOT com? Your email ID is not listed, so we can't contact you.
Suhail's message to you:
I just called up one long-time friend from kalyan. She stays in doodhnaka with her family. As rightly pointed out by John, she had little idea of this place - though she has heard of Ulhas river and century rayon. I have asked her (and some of my folks from mumbra) to find about marhal ASAP, and ping me.

Hopefully by morning (ie 6hrs from writing this comment -its 2:30am in Austin), we shd hv an early updt abt this place, and I can personally call up John and convey the message.

John, if you are reading this, pls write to me asap.
