Emergency respnse to Channi flooding

Friends,

As you would have heard the monsoon rains here are creating havoc in Chennai and neighboring districts.  Our villages in Kancheepuram have also been severely affected over the last few days and the situation is getting worse.  Many of our villagers have lost their homes and have been moved to shelter in local schools.  The houses of some fifty families in the colony of Kalpat village where Kalanjiyam is located, have been completely destroyed; we are sure these numbers will increase in the days to come, as we are able to reach many areas, which are not reachable presently.  We are right in the midst of what’s happening and can see the losses and damages! We want to do all that we can to help but we need your support to do this.

Currently we are trying our best to address the immediate problems by providing food supplies/ rations, clothing and other basic necessities.  We need to mobilize resources and therefore appealing to you all for help.  Please do consider supporting in any way that you can;  please write us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Sincerely,

Kalanjiyam Team
