An all-women’s club, RC Sivakasi Diamonds, RID 3212, was chartered and installed by DG PNB Murugadoss in November. “We have implemented 11 service projects so far,” said charter secretary R Selvarani.
The new club donated a computer system worth ₹30,000 to the CSI Gnana Packiam Primary School, and this will benefit 36 students studying in Classes 1–5. A water purifier (RO) unit installed at the panchayat union elementary school, Kumarapuram, will provide safe drinking water to 60 students. Other projects include donation of 10 traffic batons to the local traffic police at a cost of ₹6,000, a cash assistance of ₹3,000 to a needy student P Rithis, studying in Class 5 at the VSKD School, Sivakasi, and honouring Rtn Velmurugan, a social activist, for donating blood for more than 40 times.
