About our group,
We Chennai-I Meetpom are a combined team of students and working professionals from US and India who have taken an initiative to help Chennai people affected from flooding. Our aim is to raise $10000 and help stranded people in Chennai.
Chennai has been hit by history’s worst rainfall ever recorded leading to massive floods, ruining everyone’s daily life. With death toll increasing day by day, roads getting inaccessible, no mobile network, no electricity, no drinking water, people trapped in houses and not even able to attend nature calls, limited public transportation, the situation is just unimaginable. It is an unpredicted hassle that has brought the city to a complete Standstill.Here is a nutshell on what we are currently planning to do with the funds,1. We have already spoken to RJ Balaji and are teaming up with his BigFM team in Chennai to distribute food packets, medicine and provide accommodation to people stranded in Chennai2. We are also making efforts to team up with other organizations like SEVABHARATHI TAMILNADU to support flood relief activities.
We will keep you all updated about how the funds are utilized. We are confident that we will make our best effort to track each dollar collected through this initiation reaches the needy. We will be grateful and would like to thank you in advance who are willing to contribute and for all your support.
Let us all join our hands and help in any possible way to save CHENNAI and ITS PEOPLE!
