Project Update :: Seva Chakkara Samajam (Suma)

I just spoke to the Founder of Seva Chakkara Samajam, Mr.Velayudham who are helping with R & R.

They are helping/ want to help the following affected areas :-

*** Kalpakam (? didn't catch if this is an area as well), Ayodya Kuppam, Ourur Kuppam, Olcot and Adayar.

*** With Plastic Kodums (ie. pots/buckets) for water, medicines, payi (mats I think), rice, temporary stretchers.

He mentioned that last time when they went to Olcot and gave them coffee, biscuits .... those folks (survivors) over there hadn't had anything for almost 2 days and were so glad to receive a small cup of coffee :((

I also asked him if Seva Chakkara was taking any kids who were orphaned due to this disaster and he mentioned not at this point since the Govt is trying to help out but if they do see a need for any they will be taking them in.

All the kids at Seva Chakkara Samajam are drinking boiled water and taking precautions as well.
