Review meetings were organized during March - May 2018 period with flood affected families of Cuddalore. They appreciated the emergency relief extended to them by many friends through Global Giving from January 2016. Though, their priority was rebuilding of homes destroyed by floods, still, they accepted educational supports for Children and livelihood schemes for single Women and Widows. During the final review meeting held by the local collaborating organization HESAT, the flood affected families appealed for the following:
- Guide books for 272 school Children with minimum of INR 300 per student.
- Goat rearing for 60 single Women and Widows with INR 5000 per Woman.
- Growing of herbals for native medicenes by 120 Women with INR 1500 per Woman
NGOs do continue to motivate flood affected families for approaching Government for schemes. It takes more time. In the meantime, it is important that you and we work through Global Giving for extending minimum supports for the integrated developments of flood affected families in Cuddalore. Please consider whatever you can.

True,the main objective of this project was to rebuild homes destroyed by floods in Cuddalore and Villupuram Districts.
