Case Study

Mudichur - Anakaputhur Cluster

Swaminathan, our full-timer along with 2 volunteers went to Mudichur to distribute food and relief materials. Mudichur was one of the worst affected areas in Chennai with deep water levels. Even sewage got mixed with drinking water and it was difficult to travel in that area. Hence AID INDIA team took a truck with relief supplies as well as four wooden boats. Even, our team had to travel hard to provide the relief supplies and food packets. People in that area appreciated our efforts and they also mentioned that we were the only team to step on the water even after knowing that the water is mixed with drainage water. There was no electricity for more than a week in that area. Hence all the distribution has to be done during day-time only. After distribution, we handed over the boats to the panchayat president in that locality.

Key Highlights

1) AID INDIA was part of the medical camp organized by chennai corpiration zone 4 along with Ramakrishna Mission.This camp was special beause it was for the the sanitary workers who have the unenviable task of cleaning the city post floods. More than 10 volunteers from AID INDIA were part of this camp.

2) Selva Ganapathy, long-time volunteer with AID INDIA, has received an award for his stellar contribution towards Tamilnadu Flood Relief efforts from Isaignani Ilaiyaraja. In spite the fact that he couldn't contact his immediate family for more than 4 to 5 days during the flood, he dedicated his time to rescue and help others. Kudos to his commitment.

AID INDIA team went to an Irular colony near Medavakkam to distribute relief materials such as blankets, mats, rice, dhal and other dry rations to around 300 families. The place had loads of garbage piled up on the streets. Our volunteers first gave tokens to each house and then distributed the materials in an orderly manner. In that area, our team also observed that students have lost all their text books and school bags as well. Many of those families still require clothes and utensils for cooking. More mosquitoes are there due to unhygenic environment.Houses with thatched roof were most affected as water seeped inside through roof. Sudeshna, a core AID INDIA volunteer, led a team of 6 volunteers and handled the distribution smoothly.
