Call For Tamil Nadu Flood Relief Contributions

Dear Friends,

As all of you would have heard, the northern coastal districts of Tamil Nadu have been severely affected by flooding in the aftermath of unprecedented rains. Thousands have been rendered homeless and many more have lost their livelihood. Transport and communication systems are paralyzed.

A massive effort is required to help the thousands of stranded people get back on their feet. Our sister organization in Tamil Nadu Free Software Foundation Tamilnadu (FSFTN) is also involved in relief work. FSFTN volunteers have already been active in distributing food to areas around T.Nagar.

It’s our social duty to support and help our brothers and sisters in Chennai and northern districts of Tamil Nadu. We are seeking your help in providing support to the victims. Thousands of people are stranded in different parts of city with little access to food or other basic necessities.

Great.

Started initiative and created a Flood Relief Drive for PLUGIN. Do refer and keep posting updates here. Adding @shijil and @vincentvikram as hosts so that there’s a proper flow of information to students who are interested.

To increase credibility of the drive, please publish names of contributors on FSMK website and also keep pushing pictures and content on the Facebook event page. Both these will help us fetch better contributions. Thanks!
