Tamil Nadu is seeing some of the worst rainfall and subsequent floods in over a 100 years. The amount of damage caused was unprecedented. Roads have caved in, and traffic has come to a halt. There is incessant waterlogging, which is hampering relief operations. Over 200 people have died, and several thousands are stranded. Rivers have overflown, and spilled on to the roads, which have been reduced to stretches of potholes. There is no food, or electricity. Chennai has come to a standstill
Floods in Chennai have killed hundreds of people and have caused widespread damage in the region. Several of our local nonprofit partners are responding to survivors' immediate needs and have asked us to help fund their relief and recovery efforts on the ground. Especially in vellacherry, semmanjery, kannaki nagar, kallukuttai, etc
All donations to this fund will support recovery and relief efforts in Chennai. Initially, the fund will help first responders meet survivors' immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter. Once initial relief work is NEEDED, this fund will transition to support longer-term recovery efforts run by local STUDENTS TEAM and VETNGO
We believe that local organisations and students team of volunteers that are deeply-rooted in local communities are in the best position to provide long-term support for flood victims. By funding the relief efforts of local organisations, donations to this fund have the potential to build stronger volunteers are better equipped to face future challenges.
