The SCSTEDS team did a comprehensive analysis and identified the neediest families in the area. The focus was on families that have lost everything in the rains and not received any other relief.
In the first phase, kits were distributed to 600 families on the 20th December, 2015.
The packing of 600 relief kits for the households / families and transporting to the STEDS office was completed by the midnight of the 19th December. The project team ensured that the material were stored with atmost security at the project office.
The response from the beneficiaries was a very positive one and there was a great deal of joy at the kind of materials received. They felt that it was a comprehensive kit which would certainly help them to restore the basic needs within their homes and help them get back to cooking safe food for children. All of them shared their heartfelt gratitude to CRY and STEDS for the much needed support.
The second phase of 400 families will be done in May, after the Tamil Nadu state elections, as distribution of these items was in violation of the election commission norms. A separate report on the same would be updated post distribution.
