We thank the donors of Global Giving for their kind support towards the members of the communities who were badly affected by the destruction caused by the cyclone “Gaja”. As you are aware, the relief work was carried out by our team through the National Mother and Child welfare Organization.
We wish to inform you that now rehabilitation work is being taken up in the cyclone hit region by the government. And hence while requesting you to close the campaign seeking donation for the Gaja cyclone hit victims, we again thank the donors of Global Giving for their timely support and solidarity with the cyclone hit communities.
Thanks to the generous people who believe our project is progressing positively and for helping most affected people by Cyclone Gaja of Vedaranniyam and Thalainayar block of Nagapattinam District of Tamil Nadu.
Our first effort towards this relief programme was to conduct a face-to-face survey with the residents of the focused area with support of NAMCO organisation. Our team of members was at the project site a week ahead collecting complete details from each family. The survey recorded details from 200 families. Following are the findings of the survey conducted.
The primary purpose of our mission is to provide poor, marginalised farmers with agricultural tools. Most of the farmers have lost and damaged their tools in the cyclone. 70 women farmers received their tools with support of Global Giving donors.
Ms.Rani and her family live in the Vedaranniyam block of Nagapattinam . The main occupation of the family is agriculture. They own 1.5 acre of agricultural land. They cultivate rice and timber value tress. The income generated from the agriculture support the family. The cyclone has affected their land and damaged their tools and properties.
The cyclone has affected their main income generation activities. They were in immediate need for the tools. With the support of GlobalGiving donors the family received the required agricultural tool.
“We have received the regular relief work from supporters, but the tools was one of the most important and essential one which will support our life” remarked Ms.Rani.
