Why am I fundraising?
While Chennai/Cuddalore rain relief is in progress, next step in bringing lives to normal is to focus on Rehab. GHF Rain Relief team is working on ground in North Chennai (Mint, RR Nagar-Kuppa Medu, Korrkupet, Anarthanayaki Nagar where we run our grooming centeres. We also have team working in Cuddalore focusing on relief for now. To plan rehabilitation, in selected places of North Chennai and few Villages in Cuddalore, we need lot of support in putting together a Rehab kit and if necessary, to rebuild homes. To start with we are reaching out to support through Milaap

I am already contributing to Chennai Rain Relief? Are you not part of the groups that are working on ground?- Calamity like this needs all the support from multiple groups (NGOs, Govt, Social Groups, Volunteers etc..) and the level of damage that these rains caused can't be set alright by any single group. We are trying to do our bit in the areas where we are already working (through our Grooming centeres). Idea is to help. So as long as you are doing your bit, it shouldn't matter whether you contribute here or somewhere else
How will know that the funds raised are spent for the right purpose?
- GHF team takes responsibility to publish the expense statement for all the funds collected for Rain Relief. Once we are done with Rehab, we'll be sharing the entire expense details will all the donors. We'll also keep you posted with frequent updates of the work that we are doing for Rain Rehab
