While it continues to rain on and off and the conditions for many in low-lying areas of the city remains severe, City of Chennai is slowly getting back onto its feet. We are very deeply touched by devastating floods and damages it caused to everyone, particularly poor people living in low lying areas.
We have picked a slum area of VOC Nagar, Chennai, a dwelling of more than 5000 households and talked to few residents and social worker, and assess that people are in dire need of some assistance for us. All their belonging have submerged into the water. Many organizations have taken up the tasks of supplying food and water. However, the people from the area are asking for blankets and bedsheets as to be a big immediate help and future help keeping upcoming winter season in mind.
Be Educated along with Indian Community have pledged to supply 3000 blankets in this area. We checked the price and it seems each blanket will cost a mere $5 including logistics. If we all come forward and chip in few the goal in within reach.
May we request you to come forward and donation few blankets for needy residents of VOC Nagar (a low lying slum area in Chennai-12). Please remember area we picked up is one of the poorest area of city, people has lost almost everything, so this small gift (one blanket) helps to save their children from wet/chilly nights.
You may contact and assess the situation directly from our local volunteers in the areas if you wish.
