Together we can provide them hope!

Thank you for your kind donation and your support gives new hope to the flood victims.

With the ongoing support of Global Giving we have tried our best to assist the victims of the Chennai floods.

After the completion of our immediate relief activities, we are now focusing on next project activity – providing individuals with physical incapacities who have lost their assistive devices in the floods with aids depending on the degree of damage and assisting school children with educational supplements.

The survey taken in April 2016 had helped us to narrow down the beneficiary’s demand followed by the personal interactions held with the selected beneficiaries, school headmasters, teachers, students, parent-teacher associations, the project leader was able to evaluate the demand placed. Soon after the May 2016 Tamil Nadu State Assembly Elections, project activities which were temporarily withheld for a period of two months had regained action.

Findings of our survey reveal that children from vulnerable families and economically weaker sections are the worst affected by losing their education materials, dresses and faced with numerous other hardships. Many of the schools in the areas have been affected badly; schools have lost most of the teaching learning materials.

In line to the project activity cited in the proposal and based on the community’s need, student chairs, staff chairs, mats, file cabinet, games materials were procured and distributed to four schools;Appadurai Corporation Primary School, Panagal Park Corporation Primary School, Vanniyar Corporation Primary School and  Dr.Giriyappa Corporation Primary School who have lost everything to the floods. The most deserving students of these schools as well as children at the household levels from Teynampet area were provided with shoes, socks, uniform, stationery and ID cards.  In addition; crutches, elbow crutches, hearing aids, cot were provided to people living with disabilities.

The provision of these most basic items will allow those affected to focus on beginning to rebuild their confidence after these devastating events.

 “Losing the very few I owned in the flood, made me feel very crippled and dependent”, comments 60-year-old Sriban (physically disabled), with a twinge of sorrow. “However my timely need (crutches) was taken care " says Sriban proudly approving his gesture toward the crutches under his arm.

On July 13th 2016, it was a pleasure to have Ms.Kavita Mathew, India Partnership Consultant and Ms.Elizabeth Hobby, Volunteer from England to visit our project area. They met the beneficiaries of Teynampet as well as interacted with the students and teachers at Corporation Primary Schools in the same locality.  

In collaborating with this project you can be sure that every small part that you can give will give them a chance to start again.

We have shared the photos taken on that day and will keep you updated of our activities.
