The government machinery is unable to fully manage the scale of the tragedy, while the army, navy and NDRF are helping the situation, there is a strong need for citizens like us to step in and help save Chennai and Chennaiites.
Bhumi along with a consortium of non-profit organisations and individuals has been working for the immediate relief of flood affected individuals. Since, the tragedy has struck our volunteers have been collecting and distributing tonnes of relief material and thousands of food packets every day.
We have been careful about avoiding duplicating the efforts of the government or other organisations and only supplementing existing efforts.
Thousands have been forced to abandon their homes and displaced into relief camps and other temporary shelters. The money will be used for their immediate relief like food, clothing, mats and blankets. There is also a requirement to provide clean drinking water and take measures to prevent the spread of water and mosquito borne communicable diseases.
Rs. 250/- goes towards food for a family of 3-4
Rs. 10000/- to provide blankets, mats and food for a group of people.
