Case Study

KK Nagar - Jafferkhanpet Cluster (Vijayaragavapuram)

Mohan, a resident of Vijayaragapuram has been living in the area for 40 years but hasn't experienced flooding like this ever. The area still has water stagnation. The stagnant water which is pitch black in color is being used by people to clean their homes and belongings. No relief has reached the place from the government.
individuals have been providing the residents with food on alternate days. AID INDIA was the first to reach them with food and other relief supplies. Electricity has been intermittent and the people are in desperate need of mats, medicines and mosquito coils. The residents were glad and grateful that AID INDIA had reached out and helped them in the hour of need.

Key Highlights

It is now a well known fact that Chennai and Cuddalore faced the wrath of floods this year. They came to a standstill, not realizing the impact of what had hit them. However, there are some places on the map which may or may not be known to people, but also faced the fury of mother nature. One such place is Vellore near Kalpaakam, located in the backdrop of MARG SWARNABHOOMI. This quaint place can easily be misunderstood to be a part of the private township, but unfortunately, this cluster on the outskirts of the township had a series of villages which were destroyed by floods. Our volunteers Sriram, Harish and Vaishnavi braved odds to help distribute 500 kits of relief materials to the villagers along with Mrs.Anbazhagi, our field coordinator.

The state of the village traumatized Sriram as he heard stories from people about how the flood hit them in the middle of the night. He also learnt that no relief had reached villagers in this area before as people were too busy focusing on Chennai.

He could see the faces of the villagers brighten up with hope as the truck entered into one of the villages. The local heads and Ms. Anbazhagi coordinated in distributing the supplies.

Though the villagers were hit badly, their hopes and humanity kept them together and helped them face all odds even when there was no relief measures available.
