Pune/Kerala: September 3, 2018: Incessant rains and devastating floods in August 2018 wreaked havoc in the state of Kerala, India; leading to normal lives being affected. Going by media reports, it is being claimed that it could take years for the state to stand back on its feet, and recover from the losses incurred. It is at times like these, when we as citizens of the country, must extend a helping hand to our brothers and sisters scarred by the situation.
Members of the KPIT CSR team reached Cherianadu village, Alappuzha district and Kuzhue in Thrissur district in late August, with emergency aid like medicine(s), drinking water, food and other necessary relief material. Immediate relief support was provided to people, once the team reached the above mentioned towns. Also, damage and need assessment to tackle the situation was done. In collaboration with MAITRI – an NGO, the teams promised to reconstruct a few houses and schools.
The relief activities planned also include cleaning of natural well(s) ,waste management initiatives, tending to temporary shelter needs and building mobile toilets.
We are proud of our CSR Team and salute their efforts in supporting the people of Kerala, and also thank all India-based employees for their generous donations during the drives conducted. #PrayForKerala
