Help A Child of India provided assistance to families that were submerged due to flooding of the Saidapet lake at Polichalur. People are yet to recover from the deluge and had so much to share about their experience when water rose above neck level submerging all their houses. They were sheltered in a nearby school and returned to find their belongings damaged beyond use. Most of them have not started cooking. The relief materials were provided to the affected families and T shirts were given to the children and youth. Sanitary Napkins were provided to the girls and women who expressed their gratitude.
Mrs. Poosai (75 years) who was born and brought up in this region states that she has never seen this kind of flooding in her lifetime. She is happy that people are being helped and hopes to recover from the suffering as she is feeling very weak and yet to recover from the mental trauma that they went through in running for their lives.
