The Rotary Eclub of Chennai, D 3230, distributed rehabilitation kits to 1,000 families with the ­support of many generous donors living in India and abroad. They had their ­members, friends as well as many ­corporate organisations pitching in with large contributions for their ­rehabilitation efforts.

The team along with Club ­President Jayanthi Raja Seenivasan, Project Chair Bharath from the US and Rtn Jothi Priya identified two badly affected slums, Naduvangarai and Anakaputhur, near Chennai and gave them Rehab kits comprising a trunk box, cooker, utensils, ­mixer-grinder and a sauce pan.

PDG SvRm Abirami Ramanathan distributed the kits in the presence of DGE Venu Rao, District 7870, USA and PDG Brian Beesley from Australia. Rao surprised the team with his impromptu contribution of $5,000 for the cause. The Club had earlier reached out to flood-affected families by distributing truck loads of milk, food, sanitary napkins, dresses, blankets and medicines every day.

The club is the first Eclub in ­District 3230 with 36 members from different countries.
