Dear supporter,

It was during the same time last year that Tamil Nadu faced the worst rains. The timely supported extended by individuals like you saved many from going without food and shelter. We can’t thank you enough for your support. We have put together a month-wise update of the rehabilitation efforts in the past few months. Here’s an update for the last 3+ months.

Here's an update for the month of August to November 2016

August 2016

Major Activity- The 'Reverse Osmosis Processed Water' Plant in Murichambedu village in Ponneri Taluk was inaugurated. 

The village is 20 km from the ocean and the groundwater has high salt content and is not suitable for consumption. The floods made it worse last year but now with the RO plant in their village, families have access to clean drinking water. 


Good news is this progress has brought some attention to the village from the officials who have promised to take care of the installation in the nearby villages. 


September- November 2016

Major activities- Painting, roofing and tables for the schools damaged in the floods

Schools in Vanipakkam, Murichambedu, Aladu, Akkarapakkam, Vembedu villages in Ponneri Taluk, Thiruvallur district, were affected by the rains last year. Roofs of the school buildings, benches and desks were damaged. Few of these schools observed lack of adequate attendance and in the rest of the schools, the students found it difficult to continue without adequate classroom resources.

Funds were utilised to repair the roof, benches and paint these schools. Below are the images taken during the painting and repair of these schools
