Work Done towards Tsunami Relief

Initial days when Tsunami hit, we were yet to realize the impact and the very next day we understood what a havoc it had created. Being based at Chennai, first action plan was to provide relief work at Chennai. But we found that relief was pouring in and had reached Chennai and its outskirts.
We immediately planned to reach places which was not reached and headed to remote areas of Cuddalore and Nagai and distributed basic relief material, dry ration, sleeping mat, edibles, water, medicines.
During our visit we found that relief was pouring and it was more centric towards the district main areas and it was not reaching the right people. We got in touch with the Govt Relief Commissioners and with their co-operation developed a central repository system at Chennai, Central godown from where relief material gets distributed to districts. Since then, daily the inventory was faxed to collectors from Relief Commissioners Officers and based on their requirement, relief material was sent from central godown.
As a next step, we worked with Suyam, an organisation we have been supporting for past 3 years, they stationed a team at Nagai, Akkarpettai panchayat and established a common kitchen. We provided them with another 2 tonnes of rice for this common kitchen. As schools reopened in this area last week, we provided support for 500 school bags for the children in this panchayat.
