Case Study

Kalpakkam - Anaicut Cluster

Chellamma, an 85 year old lady, living in a smallhamlet Velur near Kalpakkam was one of the affected victims of current flood. She was already suffering from a hip injury. Hence during flood, she couldn’t move out of the house even though water stagnated in her house and outside. Since the lake banks were broken, water flew through the entire village. She has been surviving currently on food given by good samaritans in the locality. She was left on the road and her son is not able to take care. Most of the people in that locality who were doing daily labour in a big construction firm are all now unemployed due to recent flood. Due to remote access, not many NGOs are visiting and offering help. Due to AID INDIA’s grass-root presence, our team visited each family in that hamlet and distributed dry rations, blankets and mats.

Key Highlights

1) Eminent Carnatic Music vocalist Ms. Aruna Sairam had words of praise for AID INDIA as well as Balaji Sampath during her concert in Narada Gana Sabha, Chennai. Her fans were also inspired by AID INDIA’s story and willing to support the cause by extending the chain of human goodness.

2) AID INDIA’s Chennai flood relief work was covered by Thanthi TV in a documentary 'Manitham' that got aired on Dec 20th. They covered AID INDIA’s flood relief efforts and systematic distribution mechanism. Watch the documentary here:

3) Scope International, a Corporate, had sent 30 volunteers on a daily basis during last week to help AID INDIA’s team on sorting, packing and distributing relief materials to affected victims.

AID INDIA volunteers Selvakumar and Shyam visited two villages Boothampadi and Kalkonam in Kurinjipadi block of Cuddalore district. In both these villages, they had done the assessment of damaged huts in the presence of Panchayat presidents. Indira from Boothampadi completely lost everything in her hut. She just has a grinding stone at home. Also, Senthamarai, working as a coolie, also lost everything in flood and is currently living on the remains of her damaged hut. 3 houses are severly damaged by the floods as well. In Kalkonam village, more than 10 thatched huts and few brick houses are affected badly.
