Flood hit people of Kerala repair their damaged road and build a drainage system!
People of Kerala are no strangers to monsoon rains but last year’s floods has changed a lot of things.. This year monsoon rains soon turned into floods for people of Onbatham Mile village in Idukki in Kerala.
Noticing Goonj’s ‘Cloth for Work’ project going on in a nearby village, people of this small flood hit village approached Team Goonj. They shared how their main village road was badly damaged with potholes and water logging due to recent floods and landslides and due to lack of a drainage structure. As a result going to the nearby hospital, schools or college was proving especially difficult for the elderly, sick and children. When Goonj’s local team mobilized and motivated the villagers, 16 people set out to repair the steep road. Working tirelessly, even in heavy rain, they filled the road gaps with soil and also created a new drainage channel along the road. Every person who participated in this work was rewarded with a carefully made Goonj Family Kit.
Right now millions of people across India are struggling with the aftermath of floods. Goonj is on the ground, doing relief work, reaching relief material.
