Recent unprecedented horrifying torrential rains in Chennai have turned former Tamil Nadu into present day Venice. More than 269 people have died since October 26, and the death toll is only rising. The unusually heavy monsoon rains began in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu and has spread across Chennai. This is a very emotional and devastating time for all families and relatives affected by the disaster.Several of the affected places were very close to my parents heart, close to their college Anna University like Koturpuram, Adayar, IIT Campus, Guindy and Velachery.


Flooded homes, lack of clean water, lack of medical supplies, and an influx of diseases has plagued the coastal city.  This amount of unprecedented rain has never hit the state in the last 100 years.  We will be there at ground zero during our winter break. We are planning to work with Udavum Karangal by donating a portion of this fundraiser to rebuild their facility. We are still working with other NGO to identify their needs and disburse funds needed from this fundraiser. For NGO that do not operate in US, we are planning to withdraw the funds,  and give it to them in Indian rupees. We will also be posting pictures and sending updates from ground zero.

Any donations $5, $10, $15 or any amount towards this cause would help ease the disaster. #ChennaiRains #ChennaiRehabilitation #HelpChennai #PrayforChennai

Dear all,
We have requested a bank transfer of the funds raised so far. We have raised $351 as offline donations. This portion of the funds will not be charged the 5% gofundme fees, 2.99% Wepay gateway fees, and $0.30 per transaction (per donation). We have secured two organizations, ChennaiDaa - who are friends of our parents(and college alumni of College of Engg, Guindy) and with an individual volunteer who has worked with several organizations - Ms. Subhashree Krishnan. She is a cousin of an ex- Austinite! Ms. Subhashree is joining hands with Peter Von in relief efforts. These are the areas we are focused right now, a portion of the funds to go towards Udavum Karagal, and the rest will be split between ChennaiDaa and Adopting a hamlet ( Ms. Subashree Krishnan). More updates when we arrive! Thank you, once again for the overwhelming support so far.
