Our aim for this fundraising was to support Naresh and his team of volunteers on relief and rescue missions during the critical days of the flood (11/29-12/9), when Chennai was ignored by the big NGOs and corporates. You donation enabled Naresh and group helped provide succor to many localities in Chennai. We believe that the current donations will suffice to continue our efforts for the next few weeks.
So we are closing our Campaign of this emergency fundraising.
We have raised $9,460 till date. Our initial target was $1,500 and with your enthusiasm (and email recommendations) we upped the target many times and are now in a comfortable position.

Naresh and all volunteers
We will be publishing details on how your money was spent, once the volunteers are free from their current work.
Thanks to your funding, we have delivered another round of supplies to our volunteers. Supplies include boats, headlamps and much more.
You might ask "Boats"? Isn't flooding over. Well flooding is over in Chennai but parts of villages on the outskirts are still waterlogged. And the rains have not stopped yet.
