Around 600 grocery kits were distributed by Rotarians from RID 3150 to the flood victims living on the banks of Godavari River in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. People living at island villages were the worst affected as the river was in spate following the floods in July this year. Each kit consisted of rice, dhal, cooking oil and other essentials to last for 10 days for a family.
The flood relief project costing ₹5.4 lakh was jointly organised by RCs Mangalagiri, Tadepally and Guntur Aadarsh with the support of the Indian Red Cross Society, Mangalagiri chapter. “Around 3,000 people belonging to 600 families benefitted from our project,” said Tripuramallu Satish Babu, president, RC Mangalagiri.
