Annapoorna's Volunteers

Reach Out to Kerala and Kodagu

The Indian states of Kerala and Kodagu have been torn apart by the relentless rains. The Prashanthi Bala Mandira Trust with the help of Annapoorna's volunteers reached out with relief materials to the flood hit areas in Kerala and Kodagu, Karnataka, in eight large trucks on August 25, 2018.

Three places were identified for distribution in Kerala: Alleppey, Kuttanad; Wayanad, Meppadi and Kannur, Kottiyur; and Kodagu in Karnataka. 2,500 family packs containing items that could help sustain for a month were sent which should have a social impact on over 10,000 people! The team also reached to deep forest areas and ensured the people there received their relief packages.

Over 100 volunteers from Annapoorna, along with students studying in High School and Pre University at Muddenahalli and from Nagarjuna Engineering College near Devanahalli took part in packing and loading of relief materials on to trucks at Sathya Sai Grama, Muddenahalli. Over 100 volunteers are stationed at the sites in Kerala and Kodagu for the distribution of relief materials.
