After dispatching tonnes of relief material, the temple city of Tirupati has now deputed a team of electricians and plumbers, considered an ‘essential intervention’ in ensuring restoration activities, to the flood-hit Kerala.

In a unique form of support, the Rotary Club of Tirupati has hand-picked 11 professionals and sent them to Alleppey. They will attend to repair works for 10 days. As the Rotary Club of Sherthallai has volunteered to repair houses belonging to the poor free of cost, the electricians and plumbers from Tirupati will be entrusted the task.

The initiative was led by Rotary Club assistant governor V. Jayaram Prasad, while secretary M. Hemachander announced that the team would work in Mannar, Chengannur, Ranni, Chenganassery and other flood-hit areas. The Rotarians gave a warm farewell to the team at the Tirupati railway station on Monday, while their counterparts from Sherthallai received the team in Alleppey.

Mobile charging stations

The Amara Raja group employees have donated a day’s salary for the flood victims of Kerala. The group has despatched 100 emergency charging stations to Ernakulam, Wayanad and Idukki districts to enable people charge their mobile phones. Another 400 devices have been kept ready. The company has also sent 1,500 Rehabilitation Kits containing household essentials like steel utensils and clothes to Alleppey and Kuttanad areas, according to a statement.
