Akshaya Trust Helps Chennai
Record breaking rains fell on Chennai, the capital city of Tamil Nadu, in November and December 2015 resulting in substantial loss of life and severe suffering for hundreds of thousands of people.
Narayanan Krishnan and a small team of volunteering staff and residents from Akshaya Trust sprung into action. Trucks were loaded with food, supplies, cooking gas, and cooking utensils in the middle of the night and headed for the outskirst of Chennai in the early morning of December 3rd. The team worked around the clock for several days until their supplies (as well as themselves) were exhausted. Although it put a great strain on Akshaya Trust's funds and food supplies they distributed over one hundred thousand meals to those in need.
Krishnan and Akshaya greatly appreciate the financial support we received through a Facebook campaign and emails sent to regular supporters, which made the mission possible.
