Did you know that 2018 massive floods in Kerala were followed by floods in the state in 2019 as well? Meeting people of Muttil village in Wayanad in 2019 we heard about the tough time they were facing as their bridge had collapsed due to landslides triggered by floods. This bridge meant a 2 kms shortcut between Chazhivayal and Ezhitharavayal. When our teams mobilised and motivated the residents, they unanimously decided to work together to fix this bridge. Using bamboos and other local material more than 45 people managed to rebuild the bridge in just 4 days! All participants were awarded the carefully prepared Goonj Rahat Kit, for their efforts.
