Projects Update :: Anawim (Vignesh)

Dear all

I spoke with Mr. Sekar of Anawim trust. They did a physical survey of all the villages. One village, Senthilneethi, was about a 100 ft away from the shore, and has been completely washed out. There has been no loss of life, because people saw it coming and rushed to Tiruchendur. However, all their boats have been destroyed and houses too. Apparently, Govt funds are allocated to only those whose families suffer loss of life. For the current, Mr.Sekar has arranged for about Rs1000/family from IOI as an emergency fund. He said he would work on
sending what the estimated costs of rebuilding will be. The significant damage was to the fishing equipment, which will make it more difficult for the fisher-folk to get back to work. The estimated cost for Senthilneethi is approx Rs 25000/house (for 20 families) Rs 500,000. There is no chapter funding Senthilneethi at the moment. Mr.Sekar will get back to us with more details in a day or two.

Re: Mangalwadi: The situation is not serious, there was some water that entered the houses, but there was no loss of life or property. None of the other Anawim villages were affected.

Re: rehab efforts, Mr.Sekar will be visiting Anawim shortly and he said that he would keep us updated on the ongoing efforts.

regards
Vignesh

Hello fellow fisherman,

Did you know that 16% of the U.S. population goes fishing at least 16 days a year?

Did you also know that over 75% of the nations fishermen do not fish during "prime time"; fish feeding hours?

Those precious few moments before twilight can be absolutely magical. Even up until 11pm at night, the largest predators of any species feed ravenously.

Don't believe me? Check out Daniel Eggertsen's story, and a picture of a couple of his catches here : "Evening Secrets plus more"

I want you to do me a favor and try it out so I can see what you think of it, and if it works for you as well as it did for me.

You will be one of the first to try it out.

Gone Fishin',

Neil
