Update on the Relief materials distribution (24-Nov)
Relief materials distribution are going on in full swing at the villages around Mannargudi by our on-field volunteers. Several of these villages haven’t received any form of help till now as they are located very interior and with the damages done by rain they are mostly inaccessible.
Our volunteers were split into groups of 3, with one set already helping clear out government schools and other buildings for the past week. Another team goes scouting around Mannargudi, with the help of local support, looking for villages that are badly affected and in need of help. Another group has unloaded the relief materials, that was sent from all over Tamilnadu, at a school in Mannargudi which is currently functioning as our distribution hub.
Once the needy villages are identified and the required items are listed, our hub volunteers load the necessary items onto their own cars and tata ace’s and proceed for distribution. After the previous update that we sent, we now have handed over some medicinal supplies and napkins to the medical camp setup at Aarukatuthurai in Nagapattinam District. This camp is run by Nagai district Chief Judge. Apart from that relief materials were distributed in below list of villages. In certain areas our volunteers distributed materials as kit, which contains various essential things, by going door to door focusing only on homes that are damaged. As of date, we have distributed relief materials in the below villages around Nagapattinam, Thiruvarur and Thanjavur districts.
- Pullavarayan Kudikkadu
- Vadachery – Pattukottai
- Velankanni – Nagapattinam
- Karuvelankadai, Nagapattinam.
- Maharajapuram, Vedharanyam.

Your continued support is needed more than ever.
While our volunteers are doing as much as they can to help, distressful images continue to pour in from the interior hamlets around Mannargudi where our volunteers go scouting. Severe damage to many homes of the poorest who were living there. Many are still staying in camps and schools, unable to return to their once home. Yesterdays’ rain made the situation worse in many places. Your continued support is needed more than ever.
