When news about floods in December in the State of Tamilnadu, many channels spoke about Chennai city and suburban areas. But, the dangers of deluge in Cuddalore and Villupuram Districts did not get prominent coverage.  That is why, VOICE Trust approached many of you through Global Giving for Recovery Programs for flood affected people of Cuddalore and Villupuram Districts.

With your help, flood affected people of Cuddalore District were helped in March 2016 with tarpaulin sheets for covering their hutments and with relief supplies for 604 families. In partnership with PMSSS – the local organization, goats were distributed to women for reviving family incomes in June and September 2016, educational supports were extended to 1000 school children through HESAT- another local organization.

During October – December 2016, participatory programs were organized in Kurinjikudi and Valasakadu Villages for selecting most deserving single women and widows for goat rearing project. This was needed because many people asked for help. PRA (Participatory Rural Appraisal) exercises had to be used for telling people that most deserving should be helped. The process is on.

The title of this project is for rebuilding houses destroyed by floods. In one photo, you can see the huts covered with blue sheets given with your help in March 2016. Please hasten to help atleast small number of people to rebuild homes.

During November 2016, Manali school children were guided with intellectual games. During December 2016, VOICE Trust joined with local people to take steps for keeping the water ways clean to allow free flow of flood waters. This was the cause for 2015 floods.

Kalaipattarai – the local partner in Chennai has asked VOICE Trust to approach you and other friends to extend special helps for 24 flood affected women with sewing machines so that they can review tailoring enterprises to enhance incomes for meeting family needs.  VOICE Trust appeals to all of you through Global Giving to help flood affected women for tailoring projects. One sewing machine with embroidery attachments will cost Indian Rupees 7,500/= your help will lighten up poverty experiencing families in flood affected areas of Chennai.
