The gale winds of Cyclone Gaja have wreaked havoc in Tamil Nadu’s delta and coastal districts. Leaving many people homeless and destroying crops and infrastructure, Cyclone Gaja has brought normal life in these regions to a grinding halt. Thiruthuraipoondi, Thanjavur, Pattukottai, Pudukottai, Nagapattinam, Dindigul, Tiruvarur, Cuddalore are some of the districts that have suffered major damage due to the calamity.
At least 40 people were killed in this severe cyclone. As many as 82000 people were evacuated before the cyclone. The cyclone has uprooted more than 200000 trees (predominantly coconut trees) and has damaged several electric poles and crops in the state. Boats were blown away and fishing industry is totally affected and therefore people’s livelihood is at stake.
Our Ashram is currently doing relief work, so we know the real situation there and able to identify the right people who are most affected by this catastrophe.
Satguru Charitable Trust, a non-profit charity organization, is appealing to you to help us to provide immediate relief to the people affected in these villages. We have been receiving calls directly from the people in affected areas and we go directly to these villages for providing relief work. All these funds raised will be used to provide Food and Tarpaulin for the people in these villages.
Your kind-hearted generous contribution to help them during this difficult time is highly appreciated.
