Tamil nadu Flood

In the first week of December 2015, Chennai saw unprecedented flooding because of heavy rainfall. Citizens banded together to rescue others stranded in their homes as
the water levels rose to alarming levels. Almost everyone experienced loss. Thousands were left homeless and vulnerable, at the mercy of the weather and the charity of good Samaritans. The lack of warning of the floods in Chennai made it especially difficult for people with disabilities, who were left to fend for themselves.
In many cases, People were washed away, or ran out when the water started rising. Many were rescued by our volunteers.
