In the last two decades many studies have consistently presented forecasts and demonstrations of an increase in the frequency and intensity of natural disasters. They result in tearing the fragile socio-economic fabric of the society, often leading to monumental tragic disasters such as material damage to property, loss of life and means of subsistence for affected communities. The aftermath spread of infectious diseases due to the degradation of sanitary conditions is a price to pay. Chennai
Chennaities woke up to uprooted trees, broken branches, fallen sign boards, hoardings, damaged compound walls, vehicles crushed under fallen trees, power cut, a day after severe cyclone Vardah ripped through the city. Schools bore the wreath of the cyclone too. Their roofs were ripped off resulting in water logging in the premises. Dampness creeped into the walls resulting resulting in moulds being formed. There was widespread short circuit of electrical wiring and the same needs to be redone.
What is that we can do to help those affected? Keeping our focus of restoration of school system at the earliest we need funds to repair school buildings, clean the entire premises, remove stagnant water, whitewash the classrooms and redo the wiring. A thorough disinfection of the premises is also needed before children can be brought in to study. SO LET"S JOIN HANDS IN REBUILDING BY CONTRIBUTING GENEROUSLY TO THE CAUSE OF VARDAH CYCLONE VICTIMS
This project will support at least 100 schools to be restored back.
