Projects Update :: FORWORD (Ananth)

I have gotten in touch with Ms.Shiamala Baby, of the FORWORD project in Kancheepuram, and here is the update.

She is fine, and preliminary analysis says all the kids and families are safe! The school infrastructure has not suffered much damage. But the families of the children seem to have suffered a bit. The affected families have been temporarily relocated to an Ashram nearby, and shelter has been provided. Also, relief measures have been rushed in, and as of yesterday, Ms. Shiamala Baby, has quoted to have distributed more than 100 kgs of Rice, and other items.

I have requested her to make a Damage Assessment Report, and send it over to us as soon as possible. I will keep you all updated.
