Challenge

In the state of Tamil Nadu the town of Cuddalore is almost completely submerged. Efforts are needed to search for residents of this area and to bring supplies to those trapped or isolated by flooding.

Solution

Teams will search for survivors of the tsunami and also recover the bodies of disaster victims. These teams will also distribute supplies such as food and blankets to those trapped by continued flooding and infrastructure problems.

Long-Term Impact

The team has already distributed food packets to over 1,000 people and recovered the bodies of over 2,000 victims. Search and rescue along with food distribution will improve the health outcomes for the communities in this area.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
