Understanding the ground level reality of the situation in North Gujarat after the devastating effect of excess rain, Kendra took the decision of supporting the families by providing them with groceries and utensils, which are in great requirement.
On 06 August 2017 karyakartas started packing of the kits in an absolutely smooth and systematic manner, a real sight to see how the boxes moved from one point to another and finally a completely filled, packed and labeled boxes were arranged and only due to this team work the task of preparing 500 kits with 24 pieces of utensils, 14 types of grocery items got completed within 4 hours.
The village Valpura of Kankrej tehsil, Banaskantha district has suffered severely with death of 3 people, more than 180 animals have been swept away in the floods and only 2 day before the road connection has been re-established with the prime cities of Gujarat.
After the journey of 8 hours through damaged roads and along the way viewing the gruesome effect of flood, karyakartas arrived at Valpura. 5 teams of 5 members in each was formed. 1 team stayed near the chourah for distribution. Other 4 teams went for GRAM-SAMPARK where karayakartas went from one house to other and placing tilak, tying “raksha” to everyone in family, giving sweetbox and a token to each family. A member of each family was invited to come at the chourah to collect a kit by showing the token given.
