Dear Supporter,

We have put together a month-wise update of the rehabilitation efforts on the ground in Tamil Nadu. Your support has made this possible and we can't thank you enough. Here's an update for the month of January and February.

January
Major Activities- Distribution of relief kits and visits to the villages with relief teams for assessment.
Volunteers working closely with the Kolapasi team identified villages in need of help. The distribution of relief kits continued till mid-January. Relief kits were packed overnight and distributed in 3 villages in the Ponneri Taluk, 50 kilometres from Chennai. Total of 1500 relief kits were distributed by the team. Milaap Fellow, Vishnu, who had visited one of the villages with the Kolapasi team had shared pictures of the damage caused by floods. The full update can be found here


February
Major Activities- Search for schools affected by the floods, damage assessment .
During the rehabilitation efforts, volunteers identified few schools that were badly damaged due to the floods. Though these schools reopened after minor construction and infrastructure-related work, the school authorities were worried that the students from the underprivileged background will not be able to afford books and other study materials again.
Volunteers were assigned to identify more schools and analyse the requirements.

Invoices for every transfer made towards relief efforts are shared here

Thank you!
